Toby Keith Video Makes CMT History

Toby Keith’s “How Do You Like Me Now?!” has topped CMT’s Top 12 Video Countdown for a record-breaking three weeks in a row. “Ever since CMT has been keeping records on our charts (since September 1991), we have never had an artist maintain the No. 1 position for more than two weeks,” said CMT Vice President/General Manager Paul Hastaba. “The quality of the videos we’ve had on the air in 2000 has been incredible, so it’s significant that one artist can top the chart for three weeks. We’ve been getting overwhelming response on our request line for ’How Do You Like Me Now?!'” The single continues to dominate for the fourth consecutive week as it once again sits on top of the country singles chart in all three trade publications, Billboard, Radio & Records and Gavin. The song is Dreamworks’ most successful single release to date, according to Keith’s publicist.
