    Keith was part of the festivities meant to entertain guests during Trump's official visit to the desert kingdom. But according to a pool report, Trump was riding in a golf cart right past the performance, pausing briefly to take in the show on a large television screen amid evening festivities which included a banquet. Trump "was wheeled into the atrium where the men-only Toby Keith concert was playing on the large screen," the report said. "He was riding in a large-sized golf cart with a roof, seated next to the King, and took a long stare at the concert screen...

    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.” …

    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...

    Sarah Palin’s Real American Stories special premiering tomorrow night is continuing to draw controversy today (also, we got a sneak peek of the show). First it was LL Cool J, and now representatives for Toby Keith are speaking out about their surprise regarding the country star’s inclusion in the show. According to HitFix: Keith, who says he’s a registered Democrat, was not told about the usage of a past interview for Palin’s program. “We were never contacted by Fox,” his rep tells Hitfix.”I have no idea what interview it’s taken from.They’re promoting this like it’s a brand new interview.

    Toby Keith may think his Nobel Peace Prize party eye gesture wasn't a big deal -- but TWO Asian organizations are furious about it, claiming the "racist" maneuver wasn't just offensive, it was an embarrassment to his country. 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,...

While some may scoff at such a report, since it was featured in The Globe, this particular tabloid has broken some big stories, like the John Edwards affair.

    WASHINGTON, April 29, 2009 – Country music megastar Toby Keith has performed for rowdy, appreciative troops more than 130 times over seven straight years. But during this year’s “America’s Toughest Tour,” he said, “The boys and girls were rockin' and laughin' like never before.” Country music megastar Toby Keith started his seventh USO tour in Afghanistan April 21, 2009, and has been putting on shows at a series of remote forward operating bases, most of which haven't had any outside entertainment come through in six months. Here, Keith entertains Marines at FOB #2 in Bakwa. Looking over his shoulder,...
