With over 200 songs released during his career, Toby Keith was a multi-dimensional artist whose music transcended generations and genres. Some of his songs, like “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” and “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue,” topped charts, won awards, and became his signature anthems. However, many of his lesser-known songs showed Toby’s diversity as a songwriter.

One of these songs is “Valentine,” which was originally released on Toby Keith’s debut album in 1993 and was again included in the 25th anniversary version of the album, released in 2018. The song tells the story of a man who is longing for love lost as February 14th (Valentine’s Day) approaches.

The lyrics croon:

Valentine, girl do you still think about me /
I still wake up at night callin’ out your name /
And the roses are there /
Paper hearts are everywhere / 
But the fourteenth of February / 
Will never be the same /

“Valentine” was never released to country radio, but it perfectly fitting for anyone who is missing someone during this time of year. Listen to it below! 


Toby Keith Left An Immeasurable Mark On Country Music

Over his career that spanned three decades, Toby Keith released 19 studio albums, 2 Christmas albums, and 5 compilation albums, totaling worldwide sales of over 40 million albums. He had 61 singles land on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including 20 number-one hits, and 22 additional top 10 hits. He earned 12 ACM Awards, 3 CMA Awards, and in 2023, was deservedly given the first-ever County Icon Award from the inaugural People’s Choice Country Awards.

Toby Keith passed away on February 5th after a battle with stomach cancer and the country music community was left reeling. Countless friends, colleagues, and collaborators have paid tribute to the country music icon, sharing memories and photos online.

Additionally, some of his music has found its way back to the top of the charts after his death, further evidence that Toby Keith’s legacy will live on.
