From his first #1 smash “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” to his upcoming album 35 mph Town, Toby Keith has been one of the most consistent self-directed hit makers of his era. From one of his previous collections, Clancy’s Tavern, the lead single, “Made In America,” topped the charts as one of the fastest rising songs in a long line of chart burners from Keith’s pen. The second hit, “Red Solo Cup,” has become the most remarkable and commercially successful Country single in recent memory with a viral video with more than 30 million views while having topped the top downloaded Country songs charts. The first single from his upcoming album, ”Drunk Americans,” debuted at #1 Most Added on both the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase charts.

At the core of Toby’s unparalleled success is his songwriting, which has powered an astounding succession of hit songs to the tune of more than 85 million BMI performances on commercial radio stations worldwide. This summer Toby was inducted in to the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, and he has been honored by the Nashville Songwriters Association International with its “Songwriter/Artist of the Decade” distinction, is a three-time BMI “Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year” and was named the American Country Awards’

“Artist of the Decade.” His albums have sold more than 38 million copies, ranking him among the top-selling all-genre artists on Billboard’s Top 200 Artists of the Decade. Keith is also Billboard’s #1 Country Artist of the Decade and #1 Country Songwriter of the Decade. His tours, including 2014′s Shut Up And Hold On Tour, long sponsored by Ford Trucks, have drawn more than one million fans each year for the last decade. This year’s Good Times & Pick Up Lines Tour presented by Ford F-Series kicked off in May and continues through the year with shows in major cities including Chicago, St. Louis, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.  But Toby’s most rewarding experiences, as exhibited in his continual devotion to them, come from giving back. Whether it’s helping sick children and their families in his native Oklahoma through the Toby Keith Foundation and their cost-free home, the OK Kids Korral, or supporting U.S. Troops including 11 USO Tours throughout the world, Keith has never lost touch with the most important things in life.
