Are ya kidding me with this Toby/REK comparison?
Next thing you are going to be telling me that Merle Haggard ripped off Johnny Cash's "Folsum Prison Blues" with 'Mama Tried" because they have very similar themes too. There are only so many topics to write about and after time you are bound to have crossover. This comparison is just trite. If you don't like someone, fine. But don't make up reasons to hate.
