Despite once declaring he would “never smoke weed with Willie again,” country superstar Toby Keith has once again paired up with pot king Willie Nelson in a new ode to “Wacky Tobaccy.”
“That old wacky tobaccy, when you feel it creeping up on you, that old wacky tobaccy, kick back and let it do what it do,” the singer croons in the video.
The single—created in order to immortalize “a slogan, a saying that’s been around forever” but never put into song—dropped Friday and is one of the Hall of Famer’s “bus songs,” a large collection of songs he’s penned throughout the years. The video features Keith imbibing on a tour bus with a “party crowd” of fellow musicians, as well as a cameo from Nelson.
“[The song] is written to the screws, and it fits in with what we do every night with the party crowd,” Keith said of his latest collaboration.
“When we were working on [this song], somebody asked if the saying has ever been written in a song, and I said, ‘No, but they will now,’” Keith said of his newest single.
This isn’t the first time Keith and Nelson worked together on a song about their vices. Nelson inspired Keith’s “Weed With Willie,” the 2003 single where the country star vowed to “never smoke” with Nelson again because “my party’s all over before it begins.” Nelson’s vocals are also featured in the hit Keith song “Beer for my Horses.”
Keith has previously advocated for marijuana legalization opining, “if you drink liquor you ought to be able to smoke weed.” Nelson has his own cannabis company, Willie’s Reserve, which boasts access to the singer’s “legendary stash.”

Trump ‘reached into the Genesis chapter of the bigot’s bible’ to attack the Squad: journalist
On Tuesday, journalist Jamil Smith wrote a column scorching President Donald Trump's attacks on "The Squad," as an act of utmost bigotry — and narcissism.
"Trump would surely love to run against these four women in 2020 rather than an actual opponent, positioning them all as racial bogeymen," wrote Smith. "It's a royal flush for his racist campaign: two black women, including one who wears a hijab and is a Somali refugee; a boricua from the Bronx; and a first-generation Palestinian-American from Detroit."
