Toby Keith to be Inducted to the Songwriters Hall Of Fame

Toby Keith

Toby Keith has been announced as one of the 2015 Songwriters Hall of Fame inductees.   Bobby Braddock, Willie Dixon, Robert Hunter & Jerry Garcia, Cyndi Lauper and Linda Perry will also be inducted. The seven artists will be given the honor at the 46th Annual Induction and Awards dinner, which will be held June 18 in New York City.

“Our 2015 lineup of inductees represents the rich diversity of American musical styles – Rock, Country, Blues and Pop – that have captivated the world over the past six decades,” said SHOF President & CEO Linda Moran. “Each one of these brilliant music creators have written instantly recognizable classics, songs that are both of their time and timeless. Our Annual Awards Gala is sure to be unforgettable.”

Since its creation in 1969, the Songwriters Hall of Fame has inducted over 400 writers and artists into its ranks.

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.

Toby Keith is Pitching a Reality Show for Daughter Krystal

Toby and Krystan

Toby Keith is hoping to get his daughter’s singing career off the ground by pitching the idea of a reality series documenting her life to TV bosses.

Krystal, Toby’s 29-year-old daughter,  has followed in the footsteps of her popular father, releasing her first full-length solo album in 2013, and she even opened up for him on tour.  Toby now tells Country Countdown USA that Krystal has spoken to TV executives about a possible starring series, but he has ideas of his own about her career on the small screen.

He says,

“There are some TV production people taking her to L.A. They’re trying to cast her in a television show. They don’t know what they want to do, but I told them they should do her and her girlfriends, backstage, go to each concert, show people what it’s like in each city, then everybody come back to the dressing room, introduce a new song, keep it around music, but do young girls having fun, let’s rock!”
