This Friday’s song is one of my favorites in our music collection. “Clancy’s Tavern” by Toby Keith is the title track of his fifteenth studio album which was released in 2011. The song is a tribute to Toby Keith’s grandmother who owned and ran a nightclub in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Here is The story behind the song title.
My wife Teresa will tell you that I played “Clancy’s Tavern” almost “to death” when it was first released. She indulged me, but I know I drove her crazy. I guess the story and the melody both spoke to me. It is still at the top of my “favorites” playlist, so it kicks off shower time every morning. Hope you enjoy “Clancy’s tavern” by Toby Keith.
