GAC Viewers Like Toby Keith's Videos

Great American Country cable network's fan-voted Top 50 Videos of the Year contest features well over 100 nominees, but only one artist has four videos in the group.

Toby Keith sets the nominee pace with nods for "A Little Too Late," "Big Blue Note," "Crash Here Tonight" and "Get Drunk and Be Somebody.""A Little Too Late" was a #1 single and is also the subject of an imaginative video by award winning director Michael Salomon. The video embraces dark comedy as Keith descends into a dank cellar and begins, brick by brick, to wall in his love interest as he sings his song to her. Played by accomplished actress Krista Allen (Shut Up And Kiss Me! And Anger Management, among scores of roles), the female lead remains captive as the singer completes his barricade. Or does she?

Fan voting for the GAC event closes Dec. 4, and the CBS telecast of the People's Choice Awards airs Jan. 9, but the early recognition certainly recognizes the big year Toby's had in 2006.
