TOBY’S MOVIE GETS GALA PREMIERE
Toby Keith celebrated his new movie Broken Bridges with a gala premiere at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, Thursday night, Sept. 7, in Nashville.
Toby and his movie co-stars, including Kelly Preston and Lindsey Haun, strolled the red carpet and waved to the hundreds of fans who lined Nashville’s 5th Avenue to get a glimpse of the country superstar. Toby himself, clad entirely in black, made a grand entrance from a shiny Ford F–150. Industry insiders, media, contest-winning fans and fellow stars like Chely Wright packed the Ryman for the premiere showing of the film, which marked Toby’s acting debut.
Toby stars as a fallen country singer who must return to his hometown, where he meets his teenage daughter, played by Lindsey, for the first time. The crowd applauded the musical numbers, especially Toby’s duet with Lindsey on the film’s track "Broken." They cheered loudest for Toby’s big action scene, where he pummels the young man who assaulted his daughter. Broken Bridges hits selected theaters starting Friday, Sept. 8.
