Toby Keith Wrote a Song and Then a Movie: Beer for My Horses

You probably knew that Toby Keith was a country musician and songwriter, but did you realize that he writes movies, too? Well, apparently he does. His movie, currently in post-production, was just picked up by Roadside Attractions. Keith gave the film the same title as his song "Beer for My Horses" (sounds dangerous if you ask me), which extols the virtues of crime-fighting and righting injustices.

The movie version (which Keith wrote, produced and stars in) is a "road trip story" that "tracks two local deputies who defy the sheriff to save a girlfriend from drug lord kidnappers."

This won't be Toby Keith's first movie role, as he starred in the 2006 drama Broken Bridges (see production still above). Also, he and Willie Nelson did a little acting together in the video for "Beer for My Horses" which is pretty hilarious. You can watch that here and wonder along with me why there hasn't yet been a CSI: Country Style.

I cringe to think of what the guy who wrote such eloquent lyrics as "We'll put a boot in your a**. It's the American way" will do with a film.
