KNUE ‘Artist Spotlight’ of the Week: Toby Keith [VIDEO]
Toby Keith is no stranger to country music lovers. He has been apart of the country scene for many years — heck, Toby had me at “Should Have Been A Cowboy!” Toby is also a great supporter of our military, and helps charitable efforts when he can.
In fact, this past Saturday, Toby Keith did his hometown proud at the Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert at the University of Oklahoma. As you can imagine, the show was a complete sellout.
The lineup featured Keith as headliner, Willie Nelson, Sammy Hagar, Ronnie Dunn, Carrie Underwood and Wade Hayes, but the huge surprise for the audience was the appearance by Garth Brooks and his wife, Trisha Yearwood.
The show kicked off with Toby introducing Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin to the crowd of 60,000 plus.
According to USAToday.com, this is what the Govenor had to say:
“We may have had setbacks here, but we will have a really strong Oklahoma comeback.”
And with that, Toby raised his Red Solo Cup, and the party began!
The concert had the largest number of paid attendees in the stadium’s history, and all proceeds benefited the United Way of Central Oklahoma’s May Tornadoes Relief Fund. Walmart and the Walmart Foundation committed $1 million to the fund.
That’s why Toby Keith the KNUE “Artist Spotlight” of the week.
