I'm very much looking forward to hearing this song.
Toby Keith Joins Wayman Tisdale On Remake of Barry Whiteâs Hit âNever, Never Gonna Give You Upâ
Former basketball great and accomplished jazz bassist Wayman Tisdale is no stranger to one-on-one match-ups but playing with country music star Toby Keith was an unexpected pairing. The duo recently joined forces for a remake of Barry Whiteâs hit âNever, Never Gonna Give You Upâ on Tisdaleâs eighth album âRebound,â set for release on Rendezvous Entertainment on June 3rd.
Driven by Tisdaleâs steady bass performance, âNever, Never Gonna Give You Upâ features a vocal rendition by Keith, who embodies the sounds of a true Barry White protÃ©gÃ©. While reminiscing on first hearing Keithâs interpretation, Tisdale notes, âMy mouth was wide open. I could not believe what I was hearing! Toby nails it!â
New York Daily News suggests that the song may be a reflection of the countyâs open-minded political climate. Coupling Keith, a traditional country star famous for his âred-state patriotic songsâ and Tisdale, a soulful jazz musician, demonstrates that âAmerica might be ready for President Obama.â
âReboundâ personally marks Tisdaleâs recovery following a bone cancer diagnosis last year. According to Tisdale, âthis record is definitely a reflection of me and where Iâm at today.â
