Word War II -- Toby Vs. Peter Cooper Vs. Rolling Stone
April 7, 2009 at 3:41 PM (PT)
The 'he said, he said,' flap continues between SHOW DOG star TOBY KEITH and TENNESSEAN writer PETER COOPER, with guest stars KRIS KRISTOFFERSON, ETHAN HAWKE and WILLIE NELSON.
The deal started, of course, when ROLLING STONE ran a story by ETHAN HAWKE in its recent issue, suggesting that there was a backstage confrontation between TOBY and KRISTOFFERSON at a WILLIE NELSON Birthday Bash concert in 2003 at MADISON SQUARE GARDEN, which both parties denied.
After PETER COOPER of the TENNESSEAN detailed the ROLLING STONE column (http://www.tennessean.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=2009904060343), KEITH kind of let him have it, although in a very restrained tone, in the press room at the ACM AWARDS in LAS VEGAS.
You can watch it here on CMT.com. To read the ETHAN HAWKE piece in ROLLING STONE cick here http://www.rollingstone.com/news/story/27113898/the_last_outlaw_poet.
Stay tuned as the saga will most likely continue.
