Toby Keith announces 'That's Country Bro! Tour,' plus new music to come
Oklahoma singer, songwriter and entertainer Toby Keith kicks off the first leg of "Toby Keith That's Country Bro! Tour" May 26 at the Tree Town Music Festival in Forest City, Iowa.
The tour's initial leg has been announced, with 28 cities on the slate and more to come.
The single for which the tour is named debuts May 3 across all radio, streaming and digital platforms, according to a news release.
Written by Keith and longtime collaborator Bobby Pinson, "That's Country Bro" is billed as "a quick sprint down a country icon heritage trail carved out and delivered with the kind of wit and polish that led to Keith being a 2015 Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee." Toby also co-produced the track with Pinson and Reid Shippen; Arturo Buenahora is executive producer.
The single is Keith's first new music since he contributed the haunting anthem "Don't Let The Old Man In" to last year's widely praised Clint Eastwood film "The Mule." To read my interview with Keith about that project, click here.
The tour follows 2018's "Toby Keith Should've Been A Cowboy Tour XXV," which was at the center of a multi-faceted celebration of the 25-year anniversary of his debut No. 1 smash "Should've Been A Cowboy." To read my interview with Keith about his signature song's silver anniversary, click here.
