Toby Keith To Be Inducted To The Songwriters Hall Of Fame
“I write songs everyday. When someone writes their own things, to me they release their character in their music and that character shines through in all their songs. It is what I take the most pride in. I am honored to be inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame. It means the world to me and it is the only award that I will display on my desk.” – Toby Keith
“P.S. – And it was mostly hard rhymes.”
Toby Keith has been one of the most consistent self-directed songwriters and hit makers of his era. From his first number one smash, “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” to “How Do You Like Me Now?!,” “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American),” “Beer For My Horses,” “I Love This Bar,” and “As Good As I Once Was,” his unparalleled success is strongly due to his songwriting, which includes having written a number one song for 20 consecutive years. It has powered an astounding succession of hits to the tune of more than 85 million BMI performances. He has been honored with the Nashville Songwriters Association International’s Songwriter/Artist of the Decade distinction and is a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year. His albums have sold more than 40 million copies, and his tours have drawn more than one million fans each year for the last 14 years. He is set to continue on the road with the Toby Keith Good Times & Pick Up Lines Tour presented by Ford F-Series which will begin in May 2015.
Toby’s most rewarding experiences come from giving back. Whether it’s helping sick children and their families in his native Oklahoma through the Toby Keith Foundation and their cost-free home, the OK Kids Korral, or supporting US Troops including USO Tours throughout the world, Toby has never lost touch with the most important things in life.
