Chill-axin'

Album: Clancy's Tavern (2011)
  • Toby Keith penned this song with singer-songwriter Scotty Emerick. The pair have collaborated on a number of Keith's hits including his 2001 #1, "I'm Just Talkin' About Tonight." Emerick has done all of Keith's USO Tours with him and they wrote this song on a bus during a two-day stop in South Korea on their way to Afghanistan. Keith recalled "We were going from A to B, or B to C, wherever we were going. He had this idea and we wanted to write a little cool song called 'Chillaxin.' It's about finding a little piece of mind somewhere where I can just kick all the way back."
