Whiskey & Lace
Krystal Keith has a tremendous amount to overcome. First and overwhelmingly foremost is her name. It so happens that her father is Toby Keith, who also owns her record label. The first obvious question is whether Keith would get a record contact if not for her last name. The answer is not entirely clear.
Keith fares best when she adds a bit of a bluesy feel to the songs, particularly Can't Buy You Money, although there are a lot of other singers (including her father), who would do a far better job on it. »»»
