Toby Keith Declares Himself A Democrat

Subscribe to Toby Keith alerts

Country superstar Toby Keith has stunned his fans by declaring he's been a registered Democrat all of his voting life.

The 43-year-old singer's politics were placed under the spotlight in 2002, when he recorded COURTESY OF THE RED, WHITE AND BLUE (THE ANGRY AMERICAN) in response to the September 11 (01) terrorist attacks.

The track was dubbed "ignorant" by DIXIE CHICKS star Natalie Maines, whose opposition to the war in Iraq and stance against US President George W Bush prompted a long-running war of words between the two singers.

But now Keith insists his politics have always been on the more liberal side - even though many people have believed otherwise.

He says, "(The biggest misconception about me is) that I'm some kind of right-wing nut. I've been a registered Democrat my whole life."
