Bolstered by the success of the No. 1 hit single “I Wanna Talk About Me,” Toby Keith’s new album, “Pull My Chain,” has just been certified platinum. This is Keith’s fastest selling album to date, going platinum in just 10 weeks of its debut! Keith is also at the top of three of the premiere music singles charts with “I Wanna Talk About Me” which climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard, Gavin and R&R country charts. If that were not enough, it was just announced that Keith is nominated for an American Music Award as “Favorite Male Country Artist.”

All this happened less then a week after being named Country Music Association (CMA) “Male Vocalist of the Year” and taking home the coveted “Songwriter/Artist of the Year” at this year’s BMI Awards dinner.

Keith’s current album, “Pull My Chain,” was released on August 28 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album Chart and in the top 10 on the Billboard 200 Chart. Keith has now garnered 13 No. 1 hit singles in his career and this new release follows on the heels of his 1999 platinum disc, “How Do You Like Me Now?!”
