That’s a Wrap! Toby Is Done Making Movies

“There’s just not enough bang for my buck to waste that much time into a project,” he tells Country Vibe.

Toby Keith is yelling “Cut!” on any future movie making.

So his big-screen career ends with Beer for My Horses and Broken Bridges because Toby says the return on films isn't worth the price he pays on his first career as a country artist.

“When I did the movies, it affected my (song) writing. I think I had quality songs and we had hits and stuff, but it affected my day-to-day, my system, my routine and the volume of songs that I bring to the table when I record an album," Toby tells The Country Vibe With Chuck and Becca.

“I got little or no bang. You know, songs get heard on the radio forever, but movies are like here and then they’re gone. . . . There’s just not enough bang for my buck to waste that much time into a project.” 

Plus, been there, done that.

"[I] proved to myself that I could act and be in a movie with the Burt Reynolds and Kelly Prestons and people like that of the world, Tess Harpers, and hold my own. And it was like, ‘Alright, I done that. Now what did I get out of that?’ Other than the experience, we’re good.”
