Well, what can you say about the one and only Toby Keith – the king of summer patriotic playlist music? We know he’s battling stomach cancer, but his generosity is really off the charts!
Keith announced that his annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic raised $1,380,000 for charity.
“The 18th annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic raised more than $1,380,000 – the third highest total ever – May 20-21 in Oklahoma City and Norman,” Keith’s website said. “All in, the event has raised more than $16 million for OK Kids Korral, the cost-free home for families of children being treated at The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center.”
The King of patriotic country music has put together his all-American summer playlist. and we’ll use it as a great excuse to celebrate his 61st birthday this week too!
“Singer, songwriter and entertainer Toby Keith was celebrating Independence Day a few years back when the idea for his song “Happy Birthday America” came to him. So it’s only fitting that an artist known for his patriotism and support of military service members – and perhaps misunderstood for his politics – would kick off the self-titled, hand-selected holiday playlist with the track.”
“Available now here, Toby Keith’s Happy Birthday America Playlist opens with the song from his latest album, Peso In My Pocket. Among several of his own appropriately themed songs are many more by artists ranging from Merle Haggard and James Brown to Jason Aldean and Keith Urban.”
Here’s the 28 tracks on Toby’s list:
