Months After Performing At Trump’s Inauguration, Toby Keith Hit With Horrible News… Fans Devastated

Is Toby Keith “Too Political” To Perform Country Music?In Naperville, Illinois, festival organizers are feeling pressure to drop Toby Keith from their lineup. Some people feel that the singer is now “too political.”His offense? He performed for Donald Trump’s inauguration.

Keith is nowhere near a political activist such as the Dixie Chicks. He didn’t even really stand behind anyone during the election. However, since he did play at the inauguration, voices are now rising against Keith–just as they are against Trump.

Toby Keith “does not apologize for performing for our country or military.”

The June 30th event, which is a festival and Ribfest, also heard the news that Keith’s lyrics were too inappropriate. The protestors didn’t say which lyrics, but it’s not like these songs are new, so this sounds like a bogus excuse.

“In the current political climate, it seemed overtly polarizing and political,” said Naperville resident Amy Kakkuri. Similarly, the Ribfest Facebook page said no artists were “booked based on their political beliefs or actions,” which wouldn’t be true if they dropped Keith.

Before the election, however, Keith didn’t really stand up for Trump…

Back in August, Toby Keith said, “This election, I don’t think it makes a difference. I can’t believe there’s 300 million Americans in this country, and we’ve got these two as our final two. It’s absolutely crazy.”

Despite Keith’s quote prior to the election, once Donald Trump was voted in by the American people, he stood behind his President and his country. This is something we all should do, despite who lives within the White House.

Toby Keith, of course, isn’t the only celebrity to find himself on one side or the other. Luckily, the committee decided not to cancel Keith despite these protests.

      You put out a good article on here and surround it with a ton of garbage advertisers and Photoes. How do I delete those photos of pinups and dirty ads. Totally discusting. I passed by the news flicks because I know the garbage follows.

      Totally agree. He performed for the American people and the office of the President of the United States, not for Donald Trump. I hope and pray that this is not a “real” issue.

    I’ve known Toby from when he was just a struggling singer with a band and he is a talented man who is first and foremost an American.
    He’s humble enough to know he has no business campaigning for anyone, but he’s also patriotic enough to support whoever is elected
    Based on the Honorable man I know him to be, I am guessing he voted for Trump, buthe will support whoever is elected because he’s an American who wants our leader to do great things.
    All Americans should follow his lead. It’s time to forget the other candidates and support OUR President.

    The majority of the American people will stand behind Toby ! He does not have to depend on the Liberal attitude to support him! He has the support of all true Americans that believe in his right to be a Patriot for this country , no matter who our leaders might be ! He must not be intimidated because …..he can book his own concerts wherever he desires AND he will fill the stands , for sure !!

    Toby loves our country,our flag and all those serving it. For Pete sake this is just to ridiculous. Toby would have preformed no matter who won the election if asked. So stuff it. Every one should love our country the way Toby does.

    If it weren’t for Tony kieth many soldiers, including my brothers, wouldn’t have known about the support they had at home. Cause they sure didn’t get it from Obama . Long live Toby Kieth and his patriotism!

    Toby Kieth is not political, he is an entertainer. Those that are so small minded as to think differently need to open their eyes. Preforming at a presidential inauguration was about respecting our country. Honoring out traditions in celebrating another election winner. The ceremony its self is meant to bring our country back together to support the newest president. Toby did this to honor the system not to make a statement politically. He is American Proud, that’s all he is. I’d want him on my side anytime.

    You know, why is the world of unpatriotic people, an they are few, able to toss a remark an get so much press for it ? He has done nothing wrong, an for that , he is slandered, he is doing what we all should do. Respect, Honor,an stand up for our country an President. Shame on you people .

    Let’s remember, we the people of America , elected President Trump/Pence. The people that are protesting are getting too much attention for their flawed thinking. I am sure Toby will ignore and rise above the darkness in hearts and minds of the senseless behavior .

    The committee made the right choice. To support the president is what all Americans should do after the election is over. To give in to the crybabies still lamenting the fact that their candidate lost is so against everything our country stands for! Kudos to the committee.

    Beyonce performed at Obama’s inauguration, I guess she should be rallied against as being too political also…oh yea she did the same with the Super Bowl performance also. She probably should be tarred and feathered with two offenses that big and bold. Toby, you are a rough and tough Country artist and you don’t and won’t need to take this crap from those weakling that throw his system fits when someone stands up and does what they think is right. Standing ovation here!!

    Toby Keith already has ten times the money that he’ll ever spend so being dropped from one measly show will not affect him in the least. They call it “FUCK YOU MONEY” for a reason. That would make a great title for a Toby Keith song, wouldn’t it?

      April 10, 2017 at 12:34 pm

      and i’m betting you’re unemployed. stop being upset w people who are successful. i’m sure Toby worked his ass off to become the singer that he is – oh, and let’s not forget his support to our military that he does FOR NOTHING – NOBODY MADE HIM SUPPORT THEM!!! and their sacrifices allow you to post this shit that you posted.

    Do what we’re so good at doing when we quietly protest. Don’t buy the tickets for the show if he’s not there. Don’t support it and tell everyone you know who feels the same. boycott the show, simple solution . they always back down when you hit them in the only place they care about. Their pocketbooks. So far they have all backed down, Starbucks, Nordstrom’s, Pepsi, Hollywood by refusing to cast Meryl Streep etc. Simple Rules don’t watch, don’t buy, don’t listen, don’t go. they get the message.

    They feel Toby Keith is too political…give me a break. What about the entertainers at Obama’s inauguration? Beyonce was at both of his…She must be too political..strike her off any dates for concerts. Or Garth Brooks…do you dare cancel any of his performances…he also was at the Obama inauguration. Toby, you are a true American that saluted your President, your Country and the many Military men and women that were invited to this event that will be written in History. The world loves you and your music. God Bless you from Canada.

    Tell the Illinois do-gooders to go to hell. Lots of welcoming fans and audiences elsewhere. I seen Toby on TV at a tornado disaster in the Midwest and performs of troops regularly. Hos priorities and support are great and accurate.

  46. What needs to be said

    April 10, 2017 at 2:12 am

    Toby Keith is a great inspiration to Music. He loves singing and some of the songs happen to be Patriotic. I would be a shame for him to not be at this event. You would be making a huge mistake for dissing him. Most people show up for him and right now America needs him and the people who back him. How exactly are you “TOO PATRIOTIC”?
    That is just awful that someone would even say that. If you aren’t for this country then please leave.

  47. Dave

    April 10, 2017 at 3:24 am

    They said they were gonna let him play so this is a non-article and neo-journalism designed to stir up rhetoric and bombast, and by the way NONE of you people practiced what you preached about standing by the President when it came to Obama, so you are NOT going to take away my RIGHT to criticize Trump, you hypocrites!!!!!!!!!

  48. Hope

    April 10, 2017 at 3:39 am

    Toby has always supported our military and has made no bones about that and our Country, which is more than I can say for some people. If they are going to be so petty as to drop him from the show for his beliefs then it’s not really a show worth being a part of.

    For those who do not know…Naperville is a very rich, stuck up community. I live about an hour north of there and have done many construction jobs in the Naperville area.
    Just a shame that people are so immature in this day and age.
    All I can say is GROW UP AND STAND BEHIND YOUR PRESIDENT!!!!
    I surely pray and hope that all these cities and states who are pushing this sanctuary city agenda get there day when Trump nails there butts for going against the USA’s safety. Oh, and the judges who are trying to derail his travel ban….
    SHAME ON ALL OF YOU cities, states, and judges….HE IS THE PRESIDENT AND KNOWS FAR MORE THAN ALL OF YOU ABOUT WHAT IS HAPPENING AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT!!!!

    Toby Keith is a selfless and honorable man. He doesn’t deserve this bs. I pay big money for his concerts and love his patriotism! Screw Naperville and their liberal views. He has more money than them all put together for being an amazing artist and gives back.

    It’s pretty obvious those that are rejecting him are not true Americans! American’s respect each other, we have different opinions, but we can agree to disagree, without acting like kindergarteners! Mr. Keith your love for this Country is all that should matter to any True American!

    This has gotten so ridiculous! I am so proud of Toby Keith and the complete patriotism he has shown for his country. Our country. If all these people would remember that this country was founded on freedom and our servicemen fight that freedom for us everyday. It’s what gives them the right to voice their opinions or NOT go to a Toby Keith’ concert but leave it alone. Many of us are in huge support of Toby Keith and would choose to attend. That’s our right as a free country!!! It’s time to quit with all this political correctness and trying to censor what we can enjoy and what we can’t!!! If you want to worry about what YOUR family participates in that’s your business but don’t try telling me what I can enjoy with my family. That is anti-American and this all needs to stop!!!
