Queen City Cadence: Toby Keith
blog by Kathryn Przybyla • July 25, 2012 @ 2:29pm
Get your red solo cups out, Buffalo, because Toby Keith is coming to town.
The country music mega-star will be taking over Darien Lake this weekend for what’s sure to be a memorable show alongside Brantley Gilbert and newcomer Thomas Rhett.
At the music game since 1993, Keith now has an impressive 13 studio albums under his belt, not to mention 19 No. 1 hits and 40 singles gracing the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.
An industry veteran and strong supporter of the troops, Keith is well-known for his overseas trips to visit soldiers and put on shows. While some may know him for big hits such as “Beer For My Horses,” “Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue,” and Whiskey Girl,” it was surprisingly, “Red Solo Cup” that has garnered the most success.
The single has already been certified two-times platinum after being released in 2011.
You can catch Toby Keith, Brantley Gilbert and Thomas Rhett at 7:30 p.m. this Saturday at Darien Lake Performing Arts Center. Tickets are still available and range from $28.75 to $73.75.
