Turning down 'Idol' was easy for Toby Keith
That's how long Oklahoma native Toby Keith considered judging "American Idol" before he turned down the lucrative proposition, he recently told Country Music Television radio host Cody Alan.
He's also turned down a whole lot of offers for sitcoms, he said.
"I've been offered a sitcom over the last 10 years by every major network, and ... it ends up being too much time," he said.
His new studio album, "Hope on the Rocks," will be released Oct. 30.
All-American Rejects celebrate pet adoption
October is Adopt-a-Shelter-Dog Month, and to celebrate, Stillwater rock band the All-American Rejects is celebrating with its band dog, a boxer mix named Dexter.
Lead guitarist and backing vocalist Nick Wheeler adopted the dog several years ago.
The band also has teamed with Petfinder to give away a prize pack that includes a phone call from Wheeler, an autographed picture, a band-autographed copy of "The Kids in the Street" and more. See it at Petfinder's Facebook page, tulsaworld.com/dexaar
