Why do rich people get so weird talking about their personal wealth?
CMT asked Toby Keith about being country music’s top money earner, and you can FEEL the awkwardness in his answer.

He said, “It’s weird that my income is important to people. Man, I am not comfortable with my success. I do my stuff every night. I play my songs for my crowd. I got my bars and grills. I got my race horses and stuff.
“But at the end of the day, I drive a pickup truck, and I play golf with my shirttail out. I’m just not that DONALD TRUMP kind of guy. Your fortune shouldn’t matter to anybody. But it does, and I’m not comfortable with that.”
That’s pretty cool that he said that! He’s down to earth still. He recognizes his wealth, but doesn’t flaunt it like most celebrities do after earning so much money.
