Toby Keith entertains troops in Iraq

Country music superstar Toby Keith performed for service members at the Camp Liberty Post Exchange Stage on April 26. This is his sixth United Services Organizations tour. DVIDS has an account of Toby Keith and the concert:

Soldiers were drawn into the music and sang along with the band as Keith sang some of his hits like “Whiskey Girl” and “American Soldier.”

Before the concert, Multi-National Division – Baghdad Soldiers lined the hallway at the division’s headquarters building for the opportunity to shake Keith’s hand and have their picture taken with him.

Keith said he wanted to make sure all service members know they are supported back home and to keep driving forward here.

“Godspeed, you’re doing a great job,” said Keith. “America is behind you – and don’t listen to the morons. There’s 10 percent of the right wingers and the left wingers who make all the racket. Don’t listen to none of them; it’s no good for you. Just keep doing your job at hand and Godspeed to you. You’re doing a hell of a job.”
