Beautiful Stranger

Album: 35 MPH Town (2015)
  • This tale of rekindled love is the closing track of 35 MPH Town. Toby Keith penned the song with his regular collaborator Bobby Pinson. It was released as the record's third single on October 13, 2015. "That was written years ago," Keith said, "and I kept saying I wasn't putting it on an album until it had a shot at being a single."

    "The vocal shows some range people probably don't hear out of me a lot," he added.
