Keith to Launch CMT Total Release Series in September

Toby Keith will be the first artist featured in the new, limited CMT series, CMT Total Release, which premieres at 7 p.m. ET Sept. 8. “Viewers will get a real sense of what it’s like to be in the shoes of country music celebrities,” said Kaye Zusmann, CMT’s vice president of program development and production. “It’s the real story. Each episode will focus entirely on one artist. We’ll spend time with them on the road, in the studio, and also find out what they do when they’re not working — all with insight and details on their newest music release.” The first episode will profile Keith’s upcoming album, Pull My Chain. There also will be an advance look at two of Keith’s upcoming music videos, “I Wanna Talk About Me” and “My List.” 07/16/01
