Toby Keith Net Worth
Toby Keith Net Worth: Toby Keith is an American country music singer who has a net worth of $365 million. Toby Keith was born July 8, 1961 in Clinton, Oklahoma. Keith started playing music at a young age after being inspired by the musicians who worked in his grandmother's supper club. After working for a time in the oil industry and a minor football career, he decided to pursue a career in music. In the early '90s, Keith signed with Mercury Records and by 1993 his self-titled debut album was certified platinum. His follow-up records, Boomtown (1994) and Blue Moon (1996), were equally successful thanks to such popular hits as Who's That Man and Me Too. In 1997, he teamed up with superstar Sting to record I'm So Happy I Can't Stop Crying, which earned the duo a Grammy nomination. More success followed with the 1999 album How Do You Like Me Now?!, which won two Academy of Country Music (ACM) awards in 2000. His 2002 album, Unleashed, sold 3 million copies and included a hit duet with Willie Nelson entitled Beer for My Horses. In 2001, Keith's father was killed in a traffic accident. The incident, combined with the events of September 11th that year, prompted Keith to write the controversial Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American), which was hugely popular, particularly among military personnel but caused a rift between Keith and singer Natalie Maines (of The Dixie Chicks). On the philanthropic side of things, Keith filmed a PSA for Little Kids Rock, a national nonprofit that works to restore and revitalize music education in disadvantaged U.S. public schools.
