Jimmy Buffett was able to nab Toby Keith for his new single “Too Drunk to Karaoke”, but a couple years ago Keith was unable to get Buffett for one of his songs that became a big hit:

“I always talk about Willie and Hag (Merle Haggard) and people like that. Guys like Jimmy Buffett were just as big of an influence on me growing up as anybody,” Keith said.

Keith, who recorded the albums “Unleashed” and “Shock’n Y’all” in Buffett’s Florida studios, said he offered “Red Solo Cup” to the Margaritaville singer as a duet in 2011, but then went on with it himself. Buffett reached out to Keith for “Too Drunk to Karaoke.”

“To me, to work with Jimmy Buffett is a feather in my hat. I think the guy’s brilliant in what he does,” Keith said.
