Superstar Toby Keith thanks troops and their families with a three-country, 10-day USO tour April 28-May 7. Keith is visiting the Philippines, Guam and Hawaii to lift the spirits of troops and their loved ones.
Since his first USO tour in 2002, Keith has performed 11 USO tours and traveled to 15 countries plus the USS Enterprise, USS Abraham Lincoln and USS Cape Saint George. In total, the singer-songwriter has lifted the spirits of 225,984 servicemen and women.
During the tour, the singer/songwriter is scheduled to perform seven USO shows exclusively for military families.

"It feels so good to be back out visiting and performing for our troops in uniform and their families," Keith 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 summer, Keith will hit the road on the "Toby Keith Hammer Down Tour Presented by Ford F-Series."
The tour will begin June 8 in Ozark, AR.
The troops applaud Keith and Emerick as they entertain on April 28. Last year, Keith celebrated a decade of
touring the globe with the USO and capped off the year with a return USO visit to the Middle East.
