Toby Keith heads out on his 11th USO tour this week. The trek starts April 27 and runs through May 7 with Toby entertaining troops stationed in The Philippines, Guam and Hawaii.
Toby takes time out of his schedule each year for the USO tour, and he's entertained more than 225,000 service men and women since his first tour in 2002. Though his contribution has been considerable, Toby is quick to praise the USO for all they do to bring entertainment to those serving abroad.
He says, "The USO has proven continuously that they are always by the side of our troops and military families. They are on the frontlines, serving troops in harms way. They are with their loved ones, helping to keep them connected through phone calls and tours like this."
Toby adds, "I am honored to volunteer with the USO again and I look forward to heading over to the Pacific to entertain them there."
On the home front, Toby will launch his Hammer Down tour June 8 in Ozark, AR.
