“Red Solo Cup” is the second single from Toby’s album “Clancy’s Tavern” It is already the number one downloaded country song and the number one most requested video on CMT. Three-fourths of the country reporting stations are already playing the tune, which has gone beyond country radio and YouTube. The Fox television series “Glee” will feature it in an episode on December 6th. It has also been used as a music bed in spots for Tim Allen’s new sitcom on ABC, “Last Man Standing.” The song is so popular that Toby often has to play it more than once during his show while the crowd sings along to every word.
