The Exchange Club in Naperville, Iillinois is facing backlash for booking Toby Keith at their Ribfest this year, however, the tickets were almost sold out soon after they went on sale Friday.
Critics say they want the club to cancel his performance because Toby played at the pre-inauguration concert for President Donald Trump.
btw, Toby Keith is a PROUD supporter of our Military, and our Country, and it seems unfair that anyone would be critical of him..
A little background on how Toby Keith supports our Troops from USO.org:
In 12 years, Keith and his USO tours have created memories that will last a lifetime for hundreds of thousands of men and women in uniform, and their families. His USO tours also have taken him into harm’s way more than once, something his family doesn’t get too excited about, but it’s all in a day’s work for the singer.
“I’ve got a family back home too, that starts to freak a bit when it gets to this time of year to come over here. Once we’re gone, we’re over here, even after seven years, you still have to get your mind set that you’re going to be in a chopper, in a war zone, you’re going to come under fire sometimes. You’re going to be involved in some stuff,” Keith told On Patrol in 2009 while on tour in Bagram, Afghanistan. “But the second that it gets too hot, I look up and here comes a Cobra or an Apache [helicopter] to take us on in. … You know they (the military) are going to make sure you’re taken care of.”
