Toby Keith heads to Gulf

Tuesday, April 22, 2008 – Toby Keith will soon return to the Persian Gulf region to perform for the troops as part of a USO entertainment tour. Participating in what will be his sixth USO tour, Keith plans to visit small, remote forward operating bases, greet newly deployed service members and perform 18 shows in 6 days. He will also sign autographs, pose for pictures and express his gratitude to America's armed forces.

Keith has repeatedly visited troops and has worked with the USO since 2002, performing over 100 shows, traveling to more than 10 countries multiple times and entertaining more than 100,000 service members.

"There's no denying I am definitely busy these days but no matter how busy I am, I always make the time to visit our nation's troops," said Keith. "They all mean a lot to me and my trips overseas to visit them is what I look forward to every year. I only wish everyone had the opportunity to travel with the USO as it's been the experience of a lifetime for me."

Think "Roots Of My Raising - 2015" as Keith laments the loss of the commonplace, now gone forever. What could've easily been an appeal ...
CD review - Drinks After Work If 52-year old Toby Keith has learned anything after 20 years, it is to stick with a winning formula. Working with longtime collaborators Scotty Emerick, Bobby Pinson and Rivers Rutherford, "Drinks After Work" is chock full of blue collar ethic, humor and some heartbreak. Most of the album is driven by big hooks and country guitar, However, Keith experiments a bit stylistically with computerized hip hop on the party anthem opener, Shut Up And Hold On, a Buffet-esque steel drum on ...
