    Default Sammy Hagar Duets With Toby Keith On Santas Going South



    Sammy Hagar Duets With Toby Keith On Santas Going South

    We all know that Sammy Hagar heads down to his infamous Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, pretty much every holiday and free weekend he gets, so its no surprise he plans on traveling south of the border for Christmas this year nor that he wrote a song about it. What may be a little more surprising is who he tapped as a duet partner for the tune: country star Toby Keith.

    Hagar is known for his party-down, meet-me-in-tequilaville vibe, and Keith takes on the willing role of Hagars ready-for-anything wing man for this track. The two open the song trading off lines about the terrible weather in Chicago, Toronto, New York and San Francisco, then get to the crux of the matter they are both more than ready to spend the holidays kicking it in warm beach climate.

    Aint gonna be no white Christmas / Aint gonna be no reindeer / Aint gonna be no sleigh bells ringing / Not around here, Hagar sings over a shuffling, jazzy jig. Keith comes right back it, singing Im packing my tank tops / My board shorts and my flip flops / I take first class non-stop / Down Mexico way.

    Then they both come in, their voices actually meshing well: Yeah, cause Santas going south this Christmas / Santas going south this year / I say say Santas going south this Christmas / And he wont be back til summer is here.

    What follows back-and-forth rhyming about the benefits of wintering in a tropical paradise which hey, you really didnt have to sell us on. Send us to Cabo with Hagar and Keith and well sing a song about it, too.

    The song can be heard through the UCR link below...

    I'm all for a Christmas song from just about anybody and this one is OK, but fuck me in the skull if I'm not starting to choke on the flip flop references. ENOUGH ALREADY!

    If you remember, he actually wrote this song last year and performed it with the Wabos and Bob Weir:



    So its actually on Up Next where he needs to STFU with the flip flop shit!

    Me too.

    This is the worst part of the year- having to wear socks and shoes/boots.

    Shit, I think I've been doing it as long as Sam. Minus the sand part.

    This is pretty much the only official song/release from Sammy that I don't have. It's not released in Europe.

    Can anyone help? PM will work.

    Sam can sing his fucking ass off, and his voice sounds great on this.

    But I fucking hate it. Maybe I will like it more in December, but damn I think this is bad.

    At least it's Toby Keith singing the flip flops part. Excuse me, "my flippity flops".
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    I really don't recall this song right now.

    I'm not much of a fan of Christmas music. It tends to be corney. The corneyness is only magnified by when it's not Christmas.

    Toby Keith tour bus catches fire on I-65 in Boone Co.

    LEBANON, Ind—Fire investigators are working to determine the cause of a fire that broke out on the tour bus of country superstar Toby Keith Monday morning on Interstate 65 in Boone County.

    Firefighters were dispatched to the scene at approximately 4:51 a.m. to find heavy fire coming from the rear engine of the 2008 Prevost Tour Bus.

    The bus driver told authorities he noticed flames shooting out of the rear driver side of the bus. Within seconds, he reported the bus lost power. The driver was able pull the bus over into the emergency lane of I-65.

    Keith was no on board at the time of the fire. However, the busses carried backup dancers, guitar technicians and other technical members of Keith’s band. No injuries were reported.

    The tour bus was headed to Nashville, Tenn. from Chicago, Ill.

    Damage is estimated at more than $250,000 and is expected to increase once fire investigators determine the value of the personal property and equipment damaged.

    The investigation into the fire is ongoing, but investigators said the fire began in the engine compartment of the tour bus.

    It's funny that there was a lot of flip flop hate back in 2011.

    Yeah, leave the Christmas songs to Burl Ives and others. Rockers just sound silly doing them, at least to me.

    While I tend to agree with you about being traditional when it comes to Christmas songs, I actually like this song.
