Country singer Toby Keith is looking back on Christmases past and present with a new lyric video full of family photos.
Toby Keith Showcases Family Over the Years
“@KrystalKeith’s lyric video for ‘O Holy Night’ features a walk down memory lane for Toby and the family, featuring dozens of photos from Christmas over the years,” Keith tweeted on Monday. “Check it out!”
The video showcases Polaroids from the Keith family over the years, set to the tune of “O Holy Night.”
It’s been a relatively quiet year for Keith. But he’s gearing up to return to live performances in 2021.
Headlining Concerts in 2021
Next summer, Toby Keith will headline the Illinois State Fair. He’s performing on Veterans Day.
“We are excited about this year’s Illinois Lottery Grandstand lineup,” Illinois State Fair Manager Kevin Gordon said in a statement. “Our goal is to have entertainment for everyone and this diverse lineup accomplishes that goal.”
It’s apparently part of a planned summer tour. On Sept. 3, he’s performing at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut.
Last year, Keith told Fox’s Chris Wallace that fame had altered his existence. He said he made over half a billion dollars from his singing career. That’s certainly enough to keep his family comfortable for the foreseeable future. So they likely have many more bright Christmas memories in store for them.
“It changes your life,” Keith said of success. “You go from making two or $300 a week to making 15, 20,000 a night, overnight.”
Keith then described how contemporary music has changed since his ascent in the business.
“I’m in a new world but I’m going to outwork you,” he said of the more recent changes to the music industry. “It’s more of a hip-hop country. I hope the kids make a half a billion [dollars and] end up on Forbes. I made mine, but I’m not going to write that stuff.”
