While there are many patriotic songs in country music, there are few artists whose names are synonymous with all things red, white and blue. Toby Keith is easily one of the biggest fans of the United States and those who defend her each and every day.

Toby Keith's Love for America

Keith was a staunch believer in the American way. He was proud to call himself a citizen of these United States, and he wasn't afraid to call out those who would seek to do us wrong. How else do you write a song like "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue."

The country singer was also a big supporter of the men and women in the Armed Services. In 2002 he began regularly performing overseas on numerous USO Tours entertaining troops in Afghanistan, Cuba, Djibouti, Guam, Iraq, Bosnia, Kosovo, Macedonia and Kyrgyzstan, among others.

In his lifetime, he served on 18 USO Tours doing more than 300 shows in 17 different countries for more than 250,000 troops. It's no wonder the USO awarded him the Spirit of the USO Award.
