Casper, Wyoming – Toby Keith is coming to the Ford Wyoming Center in Casper on Sunday, October 17, 2021 with special guests Colt Ford and Chancey Williams. Tickets are on sale now, starting at $25.00 plus applicable fees. To elevate the true fan experience, Limited VIP Diamond Bar tickets are available and include a VIP Diamond Bar Ticket, early access to the Ford Wyoming Center, commemorative laminate, commemorative Red Solo Cup Koozie plus access to full-service bar at the concert.

Toby Keith is the familiar maxim of the triple threat – singer, songwriter, and musician – and salt-of-the-earth patriot; see his September 11th message here. Toby Keith is one of the modern era’s most complete self-directed hit makers. Keith’s newest album, “Peso In My Pocket” is now available for pre-order and will debut just two days in advance of this legendary lineup in Casper. (Hear Toby’s brand new singleOld School“.)

Keith’s recent years are a remarkably accurate representation of his entire career. In October 2019, he released “Toby Keith Greatest Hits: The Show Dog Years” comprised of more than a dozen tracks plus four newly recorded songs added including “That’s Country Bro” and “Don’t Let The Old Man In,” which was inspired by a conversation he had with Clint Eastwood and the song was later featured in Eastwood’s movie, “The Mule.” That album also includes country’s most impactful viral event, “Red Solo Cup,” the video for which has received more than 53 million views and was named ACM Video of the Year. Rounding out his music related accomplishments are his Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic fundraising events, bringing in millions of dollars to support the charitable endeavors of The Toby Keith Foundation which includes aiding sick children and their families. 

From the moment he released his debut hit single “Should’ve Been A Cowboy,” the engine driving everything has been the music. He writes it. He arranges and produces it. And he releases it on his own record label, Show Dog Nashville. At the core is his songwriting, as recognized in his 2015 induction into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame in New York City. That year Robert Hunter and Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, Willie Dixon, and other songwriters from all genres of music were also included in his induction class.

Toby Keith’s awards are too numerous to count and include Artist of the Decade nods from Billboard and the American Country Awards, as well as the ACM’s Career Achievement honor, Poet’s Award recipient, and twice their Entertainer of the Year award winner in back-to-back years. Keith’s most rewarding experiences, however, have come from giving back locally, nationally and abroad. In addition to his effort and support with The Toby Keith Foundation and OK Kids Korral, his USO Tours have enhanced the lives of nearly 256,000 troops and military families in 18 countries with more than 285 events, and have been recognized with the Spirit of the USO Award (2014).

Colt Ford

Colt Ford consistently blazes his own trail. By doing so, the Georgia singer, songwriter, rapper, musician, performer, and co-founder and co-owner of Average Joes Entertainment keeps up pace as country music’s preeminent independent maverick. Built on a series of staggering successes, Ford has risen to mainstream notoriety. He notched five consecutive Top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart with “Declaration of Independence” bowing at #1 in 2012. Two years later, “Thanks for Listening” ascended to the Top 10 of the Top 200, with the album reaching #1 on Billboard Rap & Independent charts. Selling over 3 million albums, attracting millions of followers and hitting 1 billion-plus streams, the country rap pioneer’s dynamic discography spans collaborations with everyone from Toby Keith, Brad Paisley,

Keith Urban, and Jermaine Dupri to members of No Doubt, Lit, and Lady Antebellum. Additionally, he co-wrote Jason Aldean’s #1 hit “Dirt Road Anthem” and Brantley Gilbert’s #1 hit “Country Must Be Country Wide” as a behind-the-scenes force in the studio. For his seventh and eighth albums, “We The People, Volume 1” [2019] & “We The People, Volume 2” [2020], Ford once again tossed the rulebook out the window,

perfecting his dynamic and definitive distillation of country, hip-hop, and rock like never before on nearly 30 songs.

Chancey Williams

Wyoming native Chancey Williams and his Younger Brothers Band have relentlessly toured The Cowboy State and western United States, developing a devout fan base not seen from Wyoming since Chris LeDoux. In fact, Chancey Williams and LeDoux are the only two people to ride in the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo and play its main stage as a major entertainer. The band has shared the stage with dozens of artists, including Lady Antebellum, Old Dominion, Miranda Lambert, Eric Church, Brantley Gilbert, Gary Allan and Travis Tritt. They’ve also enjoyed many bills with contemporaries, Williams says nothing beats the opportunity to have occasionally been direct support for their heroes, legends like LeDoux, Alabama, Merle Haggard and Dwight Yoakam.
