TOBY KEITH TAKES TEXAS: Superstar Breaks San Antonio Record; Made Honorary Texan

Nabs Another ACM Awards Nomination For Male Vocalist Of The Year

On Saturday, Feb. 9th, Toby Keith broke all attendance records for the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. Not only did he sell out the venue but it was the biggest crowd they have ever had since the event started in 1950. Keith's next performance stop will also be in Texas at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on Feb. 25th.

And, as part of the Texas Heritage Songwriters' Hall Of Fame Weekend, Toby Keith will be presented with an official certificate from the Office of the Governor hereby declaring Toby an Honorary Texan. Other notable Honorary Texans include Bob Dylan, Russell Crowe, Bob Hope and many others. The event will take place on Sunday, March 3rd, at ACL Live at The Moody Theater. The superstar will deliver a special performance in honor of his most loved songwriters, Roger Miller.

"Roger Miller was so intelligent that many of the greats would follow him around just for inspiration, just to hear him talk. He said some of the most famous quotes ever," said Toby Keith. "If you want to hear cleverness, you want to hear wit, and you want to hear charm - you want to hear a 'Class A' songwriter, it's Roger Miller."

Toby Keith is preparing to put the hammer down on a new tour called, appropriately, the Hammer Down Tour. Presented by longtime partner Ford F-Series, the run begins on June 8 in Ozark, AR. Joining him on this party is special guest Kip Moore.

Touring in support of his current album Hope On The Rocks, Keith will bring his acclaimed live show and its breakneck set list of hits, not the least of which is the album's title track single, "Hope On The Rocks."
