Toby Keith to Headline Sturgis Buffalo Chip Freedom Celebration Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue

One of the most recognizable voices in country music will take the
Wolfman Jack Stage on Thursday, Aug. 8, 2019 to help honor American heroes

Sturgis, SD (November 20, 2018) – Twenty no. 1 Billboard Hot Country Hits and 42 Top Tens make Toby Keith one of America’s most successful artists, and on Thursday, Aug. 8, 2019 fans will have the chance to hear this icon perform many of them live at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip. The performance coincides with the Chip’s 28th annual Freedom Celebration, a fact that is no coincidence. Keith has written and performed several extraordinarily patriotic no. 1 hits, has made several trips to the Middle East to entertain American troops and makes plain that his father was a combat veteran.

“Toby Keith has not only produced hit music every year over the past three decades,” said Rod Woodruff, Sturgis Buffalo Chip President, “he has legendary onstage energy. In 2005 when he performed at the Buffalo Chip, he stood up and put on an amazing show through one of the worst thunderstorms we’ve ever witnessed. The audience refused to budge and stood cheering through the rain in total awe of this guy! We couldn’t be happier to have him back to work his magic on the Wolfman Jack Stage.”

Keith’s songs have received more than 91 million BMI performances on commercial radio stations worldwide, and he has sold more than 40 million albums. The awards bestowed on him are too numerous to count and include Billboard’s Artist of the Decade, American Country Awards Artist of the Decade, as well as the ACM's Career Achievement honor and Entertainer of the Year twice in back-to-back years.

His no. 1 hit singles include:

“Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue”
“How do You Like Me Now?”
“Beer For My Horses” (Duet with Willie Nelson)
“As Good As I Once Was”
“God Love Her”
“You Shouldn’t Kiss Me Like This”
“Whiskey Girl”
“Should’ve Been A Cowboy”
“Made in America”
“Who’s That Man”
“Me Too”
“American Ride”
“She Never Cried in Front of Me”

And more
Keith’s addition to the 38th annual Sturgis Buffalo Chip Motorcycle and Music Festival is an indication of the incredible lineup still to be announced. The festival will open with a pre-rally party July 29 - Aug. 1, 2019, with official festival dates running Aug. 2-11, 2019. In addition to Toby Keith, the Buffalo Chip has also announced the performance of country music superstar Keith Urban on Saturday, Aug. 3, 2019, as well as Styx and Collective Soul on Monday, Aug. 5. Fans can expect more band announcements for 2019 in the coming weeks. Concerts and races are free with camping. More information and reservations are available at BuffaloChip.com
