South of You

Album: Clancy's Tavern (2011)
  • Toby Keith wrote this with the singer-songwriter Eddy Raven, who was one of his heroes during his youth. Amongst their previous collaborations was the 2008 track "Cabo San Lucas."
  • Keith recalled the story of this song: "Eddy has come out here several times on the road and written several songs with me. We've had a lot of fun and written some really, really good songs. 'South of You' was an idea that he had about getting on a boat and not knowing where I'm gonna' end up but it'll be 'somewhere south of you.' I jumped in the middle of it with him and we started saying: there's a lot of places I could go but eventually we end up living with peace of mind 'somewhere south of you.'"
