From his first single and #1 smash “Should’ve Been A Cowboy,” to his latest album and Billboard Top Country Album chart-topper Clancy’s Tavern, Toby Keith has been one of the most consistent self-directed hit makers of his era. He’s now in his 18th consecutive year having had a #1 single every year since his first release.  This latest collection’s lead single, “Made In America,” hit the top of the charts as one of the fastest rising songs in a long line of chart burners from Keith’s pen. And Toby’s new single, “Red Solo Cup,” has become the most remarkable and commercially successful new country singles in recent memory with a viral video with millions of views while topping the top downloaded country songs.
In the history of recorded music, artists exhibiting that kind of consistency and longevity are in an exclusive club. Keith, however, may be in a class by himself. His albums have sold more than 35 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 Artist of the Decade and #1 Country Songwriter of the Decade. His tours, long sponsored by Ford Trucks, have drawn more than one million fans each year for the last decade including this year’s Locked & Loaded Tour. And his roster of I Love This Bar And Grill restaurants continues to grow. His recently launched signature spirit Wild Shot, has become the #1 premium mezcal in the U.S. These, among other endeavors, have earned Keith annual recognition from Forbes as one of the very top-earning entertainer/musicians in the world.
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 or visiting American soldiers at forward operating bases in international war zones, Keith has never lost touch with the most important things in life. Surely that perspective and work ethic contribute to his ongoing success as a singer, songwriter and entertainer.
 Mohegan Sun Arena is ranked the 4th best venue by Billboard Magazine and was the 2008 and 2010 recipient of a Country Music Award for “Casino of The Year.”  For more information on concerts and other great events at Mohegan Sun, visit mohegansun.com.  For information on this week’s schedule, call the Entertainment and Special Events hotline at 1.888.226.7711, ext. 27163.
