LISTEN: Toby Keith’s New Song ‘Old School’ Was Written by Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd

Toby Keith dropped a new song “Old School” on Friday, June 25, and there are a few familiar names in the credits. The song was written by Maren Morris and Ryan Hurd along with songwriter Brett Tyler.

“When I first heard the demo, it reminded me of Steve Miller,” Toby said in a press release, “But it had a little bit of a rap to it – not unlike the can of worms I opened years ago with ‘I Wanna Talk About Me.’ Then it’s got the coolest melodic waterfall and I was like, ‘Yeah, I gotta cut this.'” The song’s chorus reads, “We’re old school, small town stickin’ around / Just like folks used to, good ol’ boys and girls / Just fallin’ in love, livin’ the life, yeah / Middle of nowhere feels about right / Keepin’ it old school, just the way we like.”
