Toby Keith serenaded a special group in Norman on Tuesday (Sep.1 ) night. It was a surprise concert to recognize volunteers in the community.
A few hundred special guests were invited out for the concert, put on by State Farm “Neighborhood Sessions”. It is a program that offers the biggest names in music a chance to give back to their communities with a local party.
Toby chose to have the private concert at Hollywood Corners, a 1920s gas station he recently bought and remodeled into a deli. He wanted to keep everything local for the surprise concert, just like the special guests he invited.
Toby performed a dozen songs, including the new hit “35 Mile Per Hour Town,” and repeatedly thanked the volunteers for helping their own 35-mile-per-hour towns.
A production team filmed the concert and will air it in a documentary on TBS in October. The exact date has not been released.
