NO TV PLANS FOR TOBY KEITH

The rumor mill has been going full-steam for some time now about the possibility of Toby Keith having a TV show.

Toby has been in the public eye as a spokesman for Ford trucks, as well as 10-10-220 long distance service -- not to mention all of his hit videos, so it makes sense that networks are approaching him to take on the small screen.

However, Toby says that his current schedule will not allow it, even though "I've got a million offers for sitcoms," says Toby. "I could probably go to any of the four majors -- ABC, NBC, CBS, Fox -- tomorrow, and have one of the three biggest producers do the show."

He will, however, continue to be the spokesman for Ford trucks -- the company asked him to continue on for a second year.

"People think when you do those commercials that you sell out," says Toby. "We were buying in. You need to have the tools to compete. There's no way you can win the Heisman Trophy if you're playing for North Dakota State."
