Toby Keith Chosen as 2017 Country Radio Seminar Featured Speaker
Toby Keith has been tapped as the featured speaker at 2017's Country Radio Seminar in Nashville. Held in February at the Omni Hotel, Keith's CRS panel will be on Feb. 24 at 3PM.
The hour-long discussion will "explore Keith’s career, what inspired him to take control of his recorded and live music, form his own label and build a business empire on his terms," a press release states. Additionally, Keith will talk about his relationship with the military and his charitable initiatives.
Keith's discussion marks his first appearance at CRS since he was awarded with CRB’s Artist Humanitarian Award in 2007. The Country Radio Seminar will be held Feb. 22 - Feb. 24.
More recently, Keith helped pay tribute to Glen Campbell when he was honored with the Career Achievement Award at the 10th Annual ACM Honors. He teamed up with Blake Shelton, Dierks Bentley and Keith Urban for a performance of “Rhinestone Cowboy.”
“It’s just really sad to think that he’s in as great a shape as he is physically, except for that debilitating affliction. But, man! He was one of the greatest guitar players of all time, and I don’t think most people realize that,” Keith shares, speaking of Campbell's battle with Alzheimer's. “I think most people saw him on the Glen Campbell Good Time Hour and some movies, and they just thought he’s a singer that sings some pop country. But Glen was one of the greatest guitar players of all time too, and even when he couldn’t remember his songs he could still play them without remembering the words.”
