Toby Keith Comes Under Fire During USO Performance

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan -- Country star Toby Keith was performing for U.S. troops in Afghanistan last week when the military base he was singing at came under fire, according to People.

Keith and his band were in the middle of the song "Weed With Willie" when mortar fire on the base in Kandahar erupted, sending the band and the troops looking for cover.

"We all ran about 100 yards to a concrete bunker," Curt Motley, the singer's agent who was with him on the USO tour, told People.

Keith is currently on an 18-show USO tour throughout the Persian Gulf.

The singer and his bandmates stayed inside a bunker with the soldiers for about an hour, reportedly signing autographs and posing for photos to pass the time.

Once they were given the sign it was all clear, the country star returned to the stage, against the advice of military personnel.

"He went right to the verse he was in and finished his show!" Motley told People.

P.S. This is the crusade I've been on for decades. If you find a guy that hunts, eats meat, has guns, believes the Bible, hates abortion, hates homosexuality, likes tax cuts, wants a strong military, etc, etc, then I challenge him/her with why they would vote Dem. If they are too stooopid to see that they are voting against me, themselves, and our country, then you have to educate them.

A hunter that is pro 2nd Amendment, strong military, anti flag burning, and votes Dem, then he votes against me and my country. He's one of those "My grandaddy was a Democrat, My daddy was a Democrat, I'm a Democrat, and by God my boy's gonna be a Democrat", type "blue state" "blue dog" Democrats, then he might as well vote like Nancy Pelosi in a gay pride week. He does me no favors. We call them "yellow dog" Dems because they would vote for a yellow dog before they vote Republican. He has picked 2 yellow dogs to vote for over his country.

His “Taliban” song is hillarious.

I love most of his songs. I will tell people who don't even like country to at least watch his videos.
