Keith cancer fundraiser set for this weekend

Wednesday, May 8, 2013 – Toby Keith will celebrate a decade of supporting Oklahoma's children with cancer and their families at the 10th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic on May 10 and 11.

This year, the Toby Keith Foundation's primary fundraising event will welcome even more celebrity golfers teeing up at the Belmar Golf Course on Saturday, May 11, with morning and afternoon shotgun starts for the first time in the history of the two-day effort. Each golfer will be eligible to win a new Ford F-150 truck in the Built Ford Tough Shootout. The festivities kick off on May 10 at the Riverwind Casino with a "Denim & Diamond" dinner and auction that also includes entertainment.

The golf classic benefits the Toby Keith Foundation's OK Kids Korral, a cost-free home-away-from-home for pediatric cancer patients, which is set to open in October.

The Golf Classic generates most of its funds from its live and silent auctions. Items up for bid this year include tickets to the ACM Awards, naming rights to a room in OK Kids Korral, a TPC Sawgrass Golf Getaway in Ponte Vedre Beach, Fla., a Los Angeles Talk Show ticket package and passes to the Emmy Awards. Silent auction items include memorabilia from Taylor Swift, Charlie Daniels, Jimmy Buffet, Derek Jeter, Mia Hamm, Blake Griffin and from Keith himself.

Baseball pitchers Greg Maddux and Bret Saberhagen, Olympic gold medalist Bart Conner, Basketball Hall of Famer Nancy Lieberman, and current and former NFL players Dermontti Dawson, Rocky Calmus, Roy Williams and Tony Casillas will be on hand.

But Toby Keith remembers. This collection of ...
CD review - 35 mph Town Way back in the '90's, before millions of dollars, high profile political feuds and moguldom, Toby Keith could really sing and write a pretty good song! News flash! He still can on his nostalgic, 18th album. You can hear an unexpected Merle Haggard influence all over this record. The title cut, "35 MPH" evokes a Haggard vibe. 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 ...
