    Sadly for all concerned, there are more holes in this story than the soles of a four dollar pair of shoes after running a marathon. First and foremost, the supposed “outrage” (more on that below) is being directed at Toby Keith. What none of these outlets seemed to have done was check one of the essential facts which the local news station actually did uncover. I’ll highlight it below for those who missed it. Some comments accuse Keith, who doesn’t own the restaurant, of being anti-gun. The franchise is named after one of Toby Keith’s bigger hits, I Love This...
  • No firearms policy at Toby Keith restaurant draws ire of gun rights advocates

    A policy at a new restaurant owned by country music star Toby Keith has some gun owners singing the blues. According to WTTG Fox 5, Keith's new restaurant in Woodbridge, Va., displays a sign on the front door that reads, "NO GUNS PERMITTED." Virginia is a gun-friendly state, the station reports, and citizens are allowed to openly carry a weapon into a bar or restaurant, as long as it's clearly visible. State law does, however, reportedly prohibit most citizens who are legally carrying a concealed weapon from consuming alcohol, but they are also allowed to go into a bar or...

    Country star, actor and restaurateur Toby Keith sparked a controversy after banning guns from his newly opened eatery in Virginia. The 52-year-old Oklahoma native held a grand opening last week for his newest venture, Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill in the DC suburb of Woodbridge. But many of the singer’s fans who turned up for the event were shocked to discover a sign in the window that announced: “NO GUNS PERMITTED.” …
  • ‘NO GUNS’: PATRONS STUNNED TO SEE RESTRICTIVE GUN SIGN AT PRO-FIREARM COUNTRY MUSIC

    theblaze.com ^ | december 27, 2013 | dave urbanski
    A sign on a restaurant door that reads “No Guns Permitted” isn’t likely to turn many heads at most restaurants. But when the other, bigger sign heralding the name of the establishment reads “Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill,” you can bet a few feathers are getting ruffled. And indeed that’s one of the biggest reactions since the country music star’s restaurant opened last week in Woodbridge, Va., a Washington, D.C. suburb about a half hour south of the nation’s capital. The big sticking point is that gun-rights advocates note that Virginia law lets citizens enter restaurants and bars...

    As top 10 country hit “Red Solo Cup” begins being worked to pop formats, songwriter Jim Beavers says he’s long since stopped underestimating the potential of the goofy little song that took on a life of its own. Although Beavers says, “I’ve determined that about 75% of the people love it and 25% hate it with the heat of a thousand burning suns,” the song has sold nearly a million and a half downloads (and counting), and was No. 1 on the country downloads chart for multiple weeks. The video, in which Beavers and his songwriting partners play a major...
  • Toby Keith weighs in on gay marriage, military

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Toby Keith says gay marriage doesn't bother him and trying to stop it wastes time and money. The country superstar tells "CMT Insider" airing Saturday on CMT that he doesn't see the reason behind getting into people's personal lives. He says refusing a marriage license to people because they are gay won't stop them from living together, so it accomplishes nothing. Keith also weighed in on the military's now-repealed "don't ask, don't tell" policy that banned gays serving openly in uniform. He says that anyone with the training and passion should have the right to defend...

    (Boston Globe reader writes:) I WATCHED the Fourth of July Esplanade program and fireworks on TV. The last part of the program was broadcast across the United States, presumably as an example of what a true American celebration should look like. I searched in vain for more than a few faces in the crowd that weren’t Caucasian, and couldn’t imagine what people of color must have thought to see that huge group of white people. Even the representatives of the armed services and the Boston Pops itself were overwhelmingly white. I’m not sure what the reason is behind this lack...

As TMZ first reported, Keith pulled back his eyes when Will Smith rapped the word "yellow" during an impromptu performance in Norway a few days ago -- Toby's rep blew it off, telling us, "nobody at the party thought Toby was out of line." But outside the party -- people are pissed. A rep for the Asian American Justice Center tells TMZ,...

In it, Hawke refers to a blowup Kristofferson had with an unnamed country star back in 2003 that sounds a lot like Toby Keith. But a furious Keith, speaking backstage at the Academy of Country Music Awards, said it wasn't true, and added that Hawke did not name him in the story because he did not want to face him...

Toby Keith did not exist to a large chunk of the country before 2002.

Fans called it patriotic. Critics (including the author of...

  • Toby Keith: Good As Ever(his observations of Iraq do not jibe with MSM's gloom and doom)

    It wasn't his first USO tour of those two nations: "Last year when I was over there, I didn't feel like it was anything we could ever win. But this year ... four out of five of the Iraqi people would wave at the choppers (that his group flew around in). Iraqis want our great boys and girls over there. They're tasting freedom for the first time." What's the best part about doing a USO tour? "Just being able to bring a part of America over to them," Keith responds. Keith says he finds inspiration while on the many long...

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. - He's tangled with Peter Jennings and the Dixie Chicks over his music, criticized the media for its coverage of the Iraq war, tweaked the Country Music Association over awards snubs and threatened to flee his record label. Keith was at the Country Music Television offices last week to promote "Honkytonk University," his new CD out Tuesday, the same day he's up for the Academy of Country Music's Entertainer of the Year award. At 6-foot-4, the former oil field worker, rodeo hand and semipro football player doesn't so much enter an office as take it over. He's candid...

    UNCASVILLE, Conn. - Toby Keith's crafted quite a career in country music and courting controversy. So it's no surprise to find the country kingpin stirring it up again. But this time it's got nothing to do with what he's singing or what he's saying or even his celebrated old feud with The Dixie Chicks. Instead, it all revolves around his choice for his opening act on his "Big Throwdown Tour," which played to a full house at the Mohegan Sun Arena Friday. Keith's enlisted "Motor City Madman" and screeching hard rocker Ted Nugent to open the shows on this leg...

    "Due to inclement weather, TED NUGENT is not able to leave Michigan and will not be appearing tonight." For a group of teens, the sight produced a statement you're not likely to hear often. "No Ted Nugent?! Oh my god. Your mom is going to be so pissed." - Protest outside - ....confrontation brewed outside the hall. Keith is an outspoken supporter of President Bush. Nugent is an outspoken gun advocate and so far right he makes Rush Limbaugh seem like a candidate for the next Kennedy family reunion....The 17-year-old wore a T-shirt with the president's likeness and the...

    In the three concerts that country star Toby Keith has performed at The Mark of the Quad-Cities in Moline in the past 27 months, he’s gone from cautious to confident to cocky. But a capacity crowd of about 10,000 blizzard-weary fans soaked in all that is Toby Keith on Saturday night, reveling in the Oklahoman’s greatest hits. A filmed intro, with Keith and his ever-present bulldog pulling down a bar with chains on a pickup (from the tour sponsor) led into “Stays in Mexico,” the first song from Keith’s “Greatest Hits 2” album last year. Keith strong-armed his way through...

    Army Spec. David Mahlenbrock had a special request should he die in the line of duty. In a letter to his fellow soldiers in July, the young combat engineer asked that Toby Keith's song "American Soldier" be played at his funeral. It was a wish no one ever wanted to contemplate. SHARON GEKOSKI-KIMMEL / Inquirer Army Spec. David Mahlenbrock’s brother Christopher, a 21-year-old reservist in Willow Grove, comforts Pennsauken friend Renee Skotnicki, 21, at Mahlenbrock’s funeral in Maple Shade. Yesterday his family tearfully granted it. Keith's song echoed through Holy Trinity Evangelical Lutheran Church in Mahlenbrock's native Maple Shade, a...
