Unleashed is the seventh studio album by American country music singer Toby Keith, released in 2002 on DreamWorks Records Nashville. Certified 4× Multi-Platinum for sales of four million copies in the U.S., the album produced four hit singles on the Hot Country Songs charts: "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)", "Who's Your Daddy?", "Rock You Baby", and "Beer for My Horses". All of these singles reached Number One on the Hot Country Songs charts, except "Rock You Baby" which peaked at #13.

Upon reaching Number One in 2003, the track "Beer for My Horses" became Keith's biggest Number One hit, spending six weeks at the top of the charts. A duet with Willie Nelson, the song also made Nelson the oldest male country singer to reach the top of the country charts at the time.
