Country Stars Come Together In Tribute To The Late, Great Toby Keith

Toby Keith looks out in the distance while on stage. He has a serious look on his face

Since Toby Keith passed away in February, singers, talk show hosts, and many others have taken the time to honor his legacy. Still, many of Keith’s friends agree that this simply is not enough for the legend. That’s why, on July 29, they will be joining together for a two-hour live show at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. Here, a whole list of beloved country stars are set to take the stage. In other words, it’s a very fitting tribute for Toby Keith.

If you’re a fan of country music, then there’s sure to be someone you love on the list of performers. This includes American Idol judge Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, Jelly Roll, Darius Rucker, and more! They’re slated to perform some original songs, but you’ll also find them singing some of Keith’s biggest hits like Should Have Been a Cowboy and Red Solo Cup.

Keith, who passed away from stomach cancer, has been passionate about helping others with this same disease for a while now. In fact, he created the Toby Keith Foundation in 2006 with the goal of helping Oklahoma kids who have cancer.

Then, in 2014, the foundation created the OK Kids Korral. This provided housing at no cost to the families of pediatric cancer patients at the OU Medical Center, Stephenson Cancer Center, and other local facilities. It’s fitting, then, that a portion of the proceeds for this tribute will go toward OK Kids Korral. Some money will also go toward Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt.

If you aren’t able to catch the live show in person, you’re in luck — it will also air on NBC, next month, on Aug. 28.
