Toby Keith’s “Should’ve Been A Cowboy Tour XXV” Presented by Ford F-Series is coming to The Show at Agua Caliente Casino Resort Spa on Saturday, October 27th at 8 p.m. Keith’s current tour is in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of the release of his debut single, and first No. 1 country hit, “Should’ve Been A Cowboy.”
A singer, songwriter, and musician, Toby Keith is one of the modern era’s most complete self-directed hit makers. In September 2017 he released “The Bus Songs”, which went on to set a Billboard Comedy Albums chart record for a country artist by holding the No. 1 spot for 11 consecutive weeks. The collection of humorous, just-for-fun compositions includes two new songs, “S***ty Golfer” and “Wacky Tobaccy.” The music video for the latter features Willie Nelson and quickly became a surprise runaway viral hit.
Also in 2017, the Academy of Country Music honored Keith with their Poet’s Award for songwriting in recognition of his outstanding and longstanding musical and lyrical contributions as a songwriter throughout his career, and his songs’ impact on the culture of country music. In June 2017, Keith held his “14th Annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic”, which raised $1.09 million, a record-breaking amount of funds for a single event in the Toby Keith Foundation’s history, to aid sick children and their families in Oklahoma. The 15th annual event was held this past June and again raised more than $1 million.
In 2018, Keith is honoring the 25th anniversary of the release of his debut single with his aptly-named tour “Should’ve Been A Cowboy XXV Tour.” From the moment that song was released and shot up the charts to become his first No. 1, the engine driving everything has been the music, which Keith writes, arranges, produces, and also releases via his own Show Dog Nashville record label. At the core is his songwriting, as recognized in his 2015 induction into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame in New York. The Nashville Songwriters Association International named him Songwriter/Artist of the Decade and he is a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year.
His songs have received more than 91 million BMI performances on commercial radio stations worldwide, with his albums having sold more than 40 million copies. His tours have drawn more than a million fans each year for more than a decade, with recent expansion into Europe and Australia. The awards are too numerous to count and include Artist of the Decade nods from Billboard and the American Country Awards, as well as the ACM’s Career Achievement honor, and twice their Entertainer of the Year award in back-to-back years.
Keith’s most rewarding experiences, however, have come from giving back locally, nationally and abroad. His golf classics fund the Toby Keith Foundation and OK Kids Korral, a cost-free home for families of children dealing with critical illnesses. His 11 USO Tours to date have enhanced the lives of nearly 256,000 troops and military families in 18 countries with more than 285 events, and have been recognized with the Spirit of the USO Award (2014). And when a tornado ravaged his hometown, Keith was the face of the community and helped shoulder the cleanup with the 2013 OK Twister Relief Concert.
