The album showcases songs entirely written by Keith throughout his illustrious career. Fittingly, the album opens with “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” one of Keith’s signature songs that features his trademark swagger.

The album also includes another fan favorite with the patriotic “Courtesy of the Red, White And Blue (The Angry American).” That song explored Keith’s feelings following the 9/11 attacks during a period of mourning for the country.

Keith’s celebration of his songwriting achievements comes at a time when he has been fighting for his health. The country legend has been battling stomach cancer since 2021 and has struggled to get back to singing.

In an interview with Country Now, Keith said, “I haven’t worked in two years. First time in my life I’ve never worked. My dad would kick my butt. But I’m not going to let my illness define me. I said, I’m going to go forward…if everything goes good with, if I get through ’em…I will. I’ll crush ’em,” he said, changing his tune to a more confident mindset. 

Keith has also faced the difficult challenge of rediscovering his own work, saying, “I got to get used to my lyrics again. I know I wrote all those songs, but I still got to remember ’em, and I’ve never been through this before. But yeah, we’re going to blow it up.”
