About Toby Keith

From his first single and No. 1 smash, "Should've Been A Cowboy," to his latest album and Billboard 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 No. 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 his new single, "Red Solo Cup," has become the most remarkable and commercially successful new country single in recent memory, with a viral video that has drawn millions of views, while topping iTunes' country music download chart. 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.

At the core of his unparalleled success is his songwriting, which has powered an astounding succession of hit songs. He has been the principle creative force behind songs that have competed and won at the highest levels of commercial music for nearly two decades - to the tune of more than 70 million spins on commercial radio stations nationwide. He has been honored by the Nashville Songwriters Association International with its Songwriter/Artist of the Decade distinction, and is a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year. On its own, Keith's songwriting is a career beyond imagining, but it is also the foundation of a much larger entertainment presence.

His albums have sold more than 33 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 No. 1 Artist of the Decade and No. 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, and his recently launched signature spirit Wild Shot has become the No. 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 Keith'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.
