About Toby Keith
The familiar maxim of the triple threat – singer, songwriter, musician – doesn't begin to cover it for Toby Keith, one of the modern era's most complete self-directed hit makers. In September 2017 he released The Bus Songs which went on to set a Billboard Comedy Albums chart record for a country artist by holding the No. 1 spot for 11 consecutive weeks. The Academy of Country Music honored Keith with their Poet's Award for songwriting in recognition of his outstanding and longstanding musical and lyrical contributions as a songwriter throughout his career, and his songs' impact on the culture of country music. This year, Toby honors the 25th anniversary of the release of his debut single with his aptly-named tour “Should’ve Been A Cowboy XXV Tour.” In 2015 he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame in New York City, the Nashville Songwriters Association International named him Songwriter/Artist of the Decade, and he is a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year. Keith's albums have sold more than 40 million copies. His tours have drawn more than a million fans each year for more than a decade straight. Awards include Artist of the Decade from Billboard and the American Country Awards, as well as the ACM's Career Achievement honor and twice Entertainer of the Year award winner in back-to-back years. Toby is responsible for country's most impactful viral event, "Red Solo Cup," the video for which has received more than 46 million views and was named ACM Video of the Year. Toby's most rewarding experiences, however, have come from giving back locally, nationally and abroad. His golf classics fund the Toby Keith Foundation and OK Kids Korral, a cost-free home for families of children dealing with critical illnesses. His 11 USO Tours to date have enhanced the lives of nearly 256,000 troops and military families in 18 countries with more than 285 events, and have been recognized with the Spirit of the USO Award (2014). And when a tornado ravaged his hometown, Toby Keith was the face of the community and helped shoulder the cleanup with the 2013 OK Twister Relief Concert. Triple threat? How about singer, songwriter, musician, producer, entertainer, humanitarian, Oklahoman and patriot. For starters.
