Country singer Toby Keith - the infamous lyricist who composed the lines "We'll put a boot in your ass/it's the American way" cautions listeners not to write him off as an "ignorant redneck" in a recent interview with Esquire. He gives us good reason not to.

Keith, who represents Oklahoma, offers as part of his wisdom, "If we need to save the planet, let's save it. " Surprising, and straight to the point - just like his songs.
