Toby Keith Helps American Soldiers Spoof 'American Idol'

Jessica Phillips  |  May 29, 2009

Toby Keith may not need to win a talent show to garner a crowd, but he's giving one lucky American Soldier the chance at becoming the Next American Soldier Idol during the grand opening of his new I Love This Bar and Grill in Mesa, Arizona on June 3.

The karaoke contest will happen before the restaurant's opening day celebration, and is open to all active duty and veterans of the US military. The winner takes home an All Access pass to the festivities, as well as a meet-and-greet opportunity with the singer.

By the way, it is great to see that Keith hasn't let fame go to his head. Check out this pic of him hauling his own gear onstage at a recent concert.
