He may sing about being an “Angry American,” but he’s also one of the most supportive Americans in country music. At least when it comes to letting members of the United States military know that he has their back.

Visiting three countries in 10 days, Toby is entertaining soldiers and their families in the Philippines, Guam and Hawaii on his current USO tour. Since he made the USO a priority in 2002, he has made 11 trips, visited 15 countries and performed for more than 225,000 military personnel and their loved ones.

“It feels so good to be back out visiting and performing for our troops in uniform and their families,” Toby said. “I’ve toured a lot in my lifetime but nothing beats traveling with the USO, having the opportunity to uplift the spirits of our nation's service heroes and showing them that America is always by their side no matter where they are in the world.”

This run will continue until May 7 with approximately seven shows scheduled, then Toby returns stateside to begin preparing for his upcomingToby Keith Hammer Down Tour Presented by Ford F-Series. Kip Moore joins Toby for the tour, which kicks off June 8 in Ozark, Ark., and runs through September.
