Carrie Underwood Added to Toby Keith’s Oklahoma Twister Relief Benefit Concert Fri, 28 Jun 2013 18:00:37 +0000 admin Toby Keith‘s Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert, which sold out in one hour, just announced another shining star has been added to its roster. And it’s not just any country singer; it’s ‘Blown Away’ hitmaker and Grammy-winning songstress, Carrie Underwood.

The vocal powerhouse has been added to the lineup, which already includes many country greats, like Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Ronnie Dunn, Sammy Hagar, Mel Tillis and John Anderson, along with Keith.

Underwood will be performing, but it will be a different type of performance.

Due to her previously scheduled show at the Grand Ole Opry, the Oklahoma native’s set will be aired via satellite from the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville to the Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman.

An Oklahoma native, this satellite performance — which will help benefit the Oklahoma tornado victims — is dear to Underwood’s heart. She’s already shown her deep support of her home state with an emotional performance at the 2013 CMT Awards, and previously donated $1 million to the victims.

The Oklahoma Twister Relief concert will take place Saturday, July 6.Share on Facebook

Toby Keith, Cowboy Capitalist: Country’s $500 Million Man Fri, 28 Jun 2013 17:36:40 +0000 admin With 70,000 fans awaiting him at the Houston Rodeo, the world’s largest, Toby Keith sits in his tour bus, as relaxed as the denim on his legs. He’s holding court with his usual crew–business partners, not groupies–and he’s mischievously daring me to eat the worm.

Half the size of a golf tee, the caterpillar-like creature floats beneath an inch of mezcal, tequila’s smokier cousin. Keith instructs everyone to raise their red Solo cups–which, unlike mine, are devoid of bug carcasses–and slam their shots in one go. “It might give you visions the first time,” he chuckles as I choke down the insect. “Goes down like protein, comes out like fiber.”

And with that, it’s showtime. After a buxom blonde rides a horse around Reliant Stadium, shooting fireworks from a bedazzled American flag, Keith leaves his rolling sanctuary. He wades through a scrum of screaming fans, pauses for a backstage chat with pal Roger Clemens, then swings up into a beefy silver Ford, which he drives over the mud and up to the stage. The opening song, which he belts over a deafening roar, is choreographed perfectly: “American Ride.”

There’s little about Toby Keith, in fact, that isn’t calibrated for maximum synergy. The mezcal–and the worm–were from the 52-year-old’s own liquor label, Wild Shot. His road trip to the stage is part of a multimillion-dollar endorsement deal with Ford, whose executives had filled his preshow tour bus, and once he’s up there, he makes sure to play “I Love This Bar,” a song after which he’s named his restaurant chain. The teens down in front with the Taylor Swift shirts? Keith owns a piece of her, too. The $1 million or so he’ll earn for the 90-minute concert itself feels almost incidental.

Keith’s commercial chops, overlaying a wide patriotic appeal, have created the most vertically integrated performer in the music business–and a one-man cash machine. FORBES estimates that Keith pulled in $65 million over the last 12 months–more than any musician not named Madonna, Lady Gaga or Bon Jovi, and easily outpacing masters of product extension like Jay-Z ($42 million), Beyoncé ($53 million) and Jennifer Lopez ($45 million).

The long-term figures are even more impressive. Over the past five years, FORBES estimates, Keith has never earned less than $48 million in a year. His cumulative take over that period: $270 million. Over his entire career–Keith has written a No. 1 country hit every year for the past two decades–his total earnings surpass $500 million. “He’s built this little empire, and he did it kind of quietly,” says concert promoter Louis Messina. “Not many people have been able to pull it off as long as he has.”

So why don’t most Americans know much about Keith? Ask him, and he’ll frame it as something of a conspiracy: “Years ago politics branded me as a cat that was an extreme right-wing guy. Media doesn’t want to cover that.” The truth lies in more basic demographics. Country music has only 14% of the national radio audience, with a heavy regional tilt. Keith’s brilliance lies in recognizing that rather than try to appeal to everyone, he should leverage a base that is unusually loyal–a screaming, swaying annuity–and milk it for all it’s worth.

“A big rock station might play a hit 100-plus times per week,” says Keith’s manager, TK Kimbrell, who joined the singer’s team in 1995. “A country station might play it 50 times. But they’ll play it forever.”Share on Facebook

Toby Keith and Verizon Wireless offers Text-to-Donate for Oklahoma Fri, 21 Jun 2013 21:03:37 +0000 admin NORMAN, Okla. – Verizon Wireless, proud supporter of Toby Keith’s Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert, announced today its plan to offer text-to-donate capabilities before, during and after the benefit concert on July 6 at the Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

Beginning today, customers of any wireless carrier may donate by texting the keyword REBUILD to 52000, which will give an automatic $10 donation to the United Way of Central Oklahoma’s May Tornadoes Relief Fund. Verizon Wireless customers will be limited to five text donations.

“As a proud supporter of Toby Keith’s Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert, Verizon Wireless believes in putting technology and communication to good use that will last well beyond this recovery effort,” said Dean Taylor, president for the South Central Region of Verizon Wireless. “A text-to-donate program makes the most sense. And, we are hopeful that providing this service will result in significantly more aid for the people who need it most.”

Tickets for the benefit concert went on sale Friday, June 21 and have sold out. Artists to perform include Toby Keith, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Willie Nelson, Ronnie Dunn, Sammy Hagar, Mel Tillis and John Anderson, all donating their time to support the state of Oklahoma. Share on Facebook

Performers Include Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood & Ronnie Dunn Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium To Host Event

Toby Keith’s Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert will be held Saturday, July 6 at the University of Oklahoma’s Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman. Doors open at 1:30pm, show time is 3pm. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 21 at 10am; all seats are $ 25, all inclusive, all seats reserved – eight-ticket purchase limit.

The star-studded lineup of performers, now being assembled, will include Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood, and Ronnie Dunn. Proceeds will benefit The United Way Of Central Oklahoma May Tornado Relief Fund.

For Keith, this event and the May storms that led to it are deeply personal. “I grew up in Moore, I live in Norman and I’ve got lots of family and friends who were directly affected,” he says. “I know these folks and they’re resilient, but we’re going to keep helping them any way we can. I’m proud to get together with some others from around here who are just as committed as I am to supporting these communities.”

“Once we got the news that the tornado had hit Toby’s hometown, Miss Yearwood and I told Toby we were at his service for whatever he chose to do,” Brooks says. “I am amazed at the human spirit the tornado victims have shown. I am humbled by the giving of the volunteers. It is an honor to get to be a part of this healing process.”Share on Facebook

Sheryl Crow holds free concert at Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar Thu, 13 Jun 2013 16:48:08 +0000 admin
There were lines of people outside Toby Keith’s I Love This Bar & Grill on Wednesday for a very special performance.

Nine time Grammy award winner Sheryl Crow performed. The best part was, it was a free concert.

Entry was first-come, first-serve. You could call it an ‘impromptu concert’.

Sheryl Crow is in the middle of her summer tour, and she played five songs Wednesday evening for about 30 minutes, which included one of her newest singles ‘Easy’.

Toby Keith’s General Manager Will Whitworth says they didn’t have much time to prepare for the concert. Their radio partner B105 notified the bar she was coming less than one week ago.

“It was a quick turnaround for us. They contacted her and she agreed to come down and do a free show,” said Whitworth.

Tickets for Sheryl Crow’s upcoming concert range from $30 to $100+, but that wasn’t the case at The Banks.

“Why not, it’s free, might as well be here,” said attendee Ben Gifford.

“I wish more things around here were free. It seems like they’re charging for everything (nowadays),” added Jenna Webster.

“I can only imagine that Sheryl Crow coming out for free to anybody would be kind of surprising. It was to me,” said Whitworth.

Many concert goers say they hope this is a sign of things to come for areas like the Banks.

“Anything to help out Cincinnati and to plug some more money into it to our economy I think it’s great. It’s definitely improved a lot and I do feel safer down here too,” said Webster.

Special Thanks to B105
