You could call him a good old boy. But Toby Keith … a metrosexual?

The tough country star – best known for his post 9/11 hit “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue” – has admitted that he shaves his armpits.

“On those summer tours, you get so hot and sweaty,” he recently told the Washington Post. “You just want to shave your head and get down like a swimmer, you know what I mean?”

He then teased the (male) reporter who noticed his bare underarms, asking, “You don’t have a man-crush, do you? You want to know if I shave anything else?”
