Toby Keith’s hit “How Do You Like Me Now?!” was written with frequent co-writer Chuck Cannon about four years ago. Keith says it was one of his favorite catch phrases, but no one was brave enough to cut it. “At the time we wrote it, it was just so unhip to sing about somebody else in that negative way,” Keith told country.com. “Then all the girls started coming out with man-bashing songs, and I think everybody was kinda ready. Everyone who talks to me about it says, ‘I was so ready to hear a song like this!’ They were tired of ‘Okay, I’ll go fetch the log and put it on the fire, honey.’” Keith decided if no one else was going to take a stab at it, then he would.
