Toby to Perform at Kansas State Fair
"This ties in so well to our 100th birthday," said state fair General Manager Denny Stoecklein. "This is a big show."
Keith is known for hits like "Should've Been a Cowboy," "Made in America" and "Red Solo Cup."
He is a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year and was named the American Country Awards' Artist of the Decade. The Nashville Songwriters Association International also named him songwriter/artist of the decade.
His albums have sold more than 36 million copies, according to a release.
Along with singing/songwriting, he helps sick children and families with the Toby Keith Foundation in his native Oklahoma. He also visits American soldiers at forward operating bases in international war zones.
After the Toby Keith concert was announced Wednesday, fans were eager to get tickets.
"We've had a lot of phone calls about our fan club," Stoecklein said. "Anything we've been hearing (about the concert) has been very positive."
