Country music superstar Toby Keith will visit Macomb County this summer.
With WYCD-FM (99.5) and Andiamo Restaurants as sponsors, the 59-year-old singer-songwriter from Clinton, Okla. will play Friday, August 7 at the Michigan Lottery Amphitheater at Freedom Hill County Park in Sterling Heights. Frank Ray will open the show.
Keith, whose latest studio album, “Peso in My Pocket,” featured single “Old School” which debuted at the highest radio entry on Billboard’s Stream Chart of 2021. That same year, he received the National Medal of Arts to honor his contributions to American culture.
Over his 28-year career, Keith has sold over 40 million albums, over 10 billion streams, 98 million BMI performances and 32 No. 1 hit singles.
He wrote a No. 1 hit every year for 20 consecutive years, including “How Do You Like Me Now?!”, “You Shouldn’t Kiss Me Like This”, “I’m Just Talkin’ About Tonight”, ” Courtesy of Red, White, & Blue (The Angry American)”, “Who’s Your Daddy?”, “Beer For My Horses”, “I Love This Bar”, “American Soldier”, “Whiskey Girl”, “As Good As I Was”, “She Never Cried In Front Of Me”, “God Loves Her”, and “Made in America”.
Keith’s “Red Solo Cup” video received over 60 million views and was named Video of the Year by ACM.

Opening the show will be Frank Ray, a former police officer from Las Cruses, NM, who performed “Country’d Look Good on You” in January at the Grand Ole Opry.
