How big a radio star is Toby Keith? Well, think of the number 15 million. That's approximately how many U.S. radio airplays several of Toby's hits have garnered throughout the years. Toby was honored by the performing rights organization BMI for the accomplishment at a recent ceremony at a Music Row studio.

BMI's Jody Williams and Clay Bradley presented Toby with several Million-Air Awards representing songwriting and publishing credits of the massive airplay success. The major hits honored included "I Love This Bar," "God Love Her," "She Never Cried in Front of Me" and Toby's five-week No. 1 hit "How Do You Like Me Now?!" The BMI Million-Air designation has been bestowed on some of the organization's iconic songwriters, including Dolly Parton and Sir Paul McCartney.
