On March 24, 2001, Keith’s father, H.K. Covel, was killed in a car accident. That event and the September 11 attacks in 2001 prompted Keith to write the song "Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue", a song about his father’s patriotism and faith in the United States. At first, Keith refused to record the song and sang it only live at his concerts for military personnel. The reaction was so strong that the Commandant of the Marine Corps James L. Jones told Keith it was his "duty as an American citizen" to record the song.  As the lead single from the album Unleashed (2002), "Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue" peaked at number one over the Fourth of July weekend.  Read More

A Toby Keith performance is always a good time. And he’ll bring that good time to the Legendary Buffalo Chip Campground Tues. Aug. 9 during the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

Sturgis biker music fans will be treated to hits from more than two decades, including those from his new album, “Bullets in the Gun.”

Toby 's fifteenth studio album has already garnered two charted hits with the title track and “Trailerhood.”

Songwriter and performer Toby has shown himself to be utterly devoted to his fans, especially those who serve in the armed forces and those who travel on two wheels.

His first No. 1 hit, "Should've Been A Cowboy" and started a string of hits including: "Who's That Man," "Wish I Didn't Know Now," "You Ain't Much Fun," "Does That Blue Moon Ever Shine On You," "How Do You Like Me Now?!" "We Were In Love," "Who's Your Daddy?" "I'm Just Talkin' About Tonight," "Courtesy Of The Red, White And Blue," "I Love This Bar," "As Good As I Once Was," "A Little Too Late" "American Soldier," and "High Maintenance Woman."

Toby has more than 70 million career radio air spins. Few others have attained such recognition. But, he’s in good company with The Bee Gees and John Lennon.

Buffalo Chip music fans know Toby’s been writing songs that fill concert halls and go multi-platinum for decades.

Sturgis music fans expect the very best from The Legendary Buffalo Chip. Toby Keith delivers.
