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!”

Toby Keith Bids Farewell to Stephen Colbert & Craig Ferguson

Toby Keith has wrapped an eventful 2014 that tapped deep veins in each of his aforementioned areas of influence, and much more. The exclamation point on his year has come within the last week as he has been part of headline-making finales for both Stephen Colbert and Craig Ferguson.

Friday (Dec. 19), Toby joined a host of celebrities including Jon Hamm, Metallica, Don Cheadle and Steve Carell for a musical tribute that opened Ferguson’s final night as host of The Late Late Show. A regular guest on The Colbert Report, Keith appeared on that series’ Dec. 18th finale wearing a medal from Colbert denoting him (along with Michael Stipe) as having the most appearances on the show.

Keith was also one of 49 celebrities offering their take on Colbert in New York Magazine’s celebrity Vulture blog. Read the full quote here; an excerpt:

The biggest moment was getting to do the Christmas special because it was so bizarre, so fun, and I love that kind of spontaneous stuff. There’s not a whole lot of rehearsing to it … Gotta let him be him, and the rest of it will fall into place for you. He’s a wacky, original, innovative kind of guy. And he’s brilliant. There was nothing else out there like it.

Toby Keith Named Oklahoma Univ. Patriot Of The Game

A proud supporter of U.S. military men and women and their families, Toby Keith capped an exceptional year in that regard with another exceptional honor. The Oklahoma native was named Patriot of the Game at the Dec. 6th football contest between the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

Held at OU in Norman, the game’s halftime show included the presentation of the award, a partnership between the university and Patriot Ford. In keeping with the honor’s intention to recognize “a recently returned member of the armed services at each home game,” Keith presented the Patriot Award to OU alum Rear Admiral Doug McClain. Unbeknownst to Toby, at the conclusion of that presentation, he was also bestowed the honor.

Toby Keith may have been the only one surprised by the moment, as his longstanding support of service members includes more than a decade of USO Tours and vocal support extending even into songs like “American Soldier.” In fact, Keith’s commitment resulted in a surprise presentation of the USO Spirit Award during his appearance on the Academy of Country Music’s nationally televised Salute To The Troops in April.

Of course, Keith’s notion of service extends well beyond the military, as residents of his home state well know. Funded largely by the Toby Keith Foundation, the OK Kids Korral opened in January to provide a cost-free, convenient and comfortable home for seriously ill children and their families seeking treatment at The Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center.

And Keith’s support of his hometown, Moore, following the devastating 2013 tornado included a benefit concert that raised $2 million for the region. That event was held at OU’s football stadium – the same venue where, last week, Toby Keith accepted his Patriot Award.
