Award-winning entertainer will be joined by talented up-and-coming artist Ian Munsick
“Country Comes To Town” this fall when the Laughlin Event Center plays host to award-winning singer, songwriter, guitarist and entertainer, Toby Keith. Keith’s Country Comes To Town Tour will honor servicemembers with his hits over Veterans Day weekend, when he will be joined by Spotify Hot Country Artists to Watch singer-songwriter Ian Munsick on Saturday, November 12.
The familiar maxim of the triple threat – singer, songwriter, musician – doesn’t begin to cover it for Keith, one of the modern era’s most complete self-directed hit makers. In 2021, he was bestowed the National Medal of Arts to honor his artistic achievements and contributions to the arts and culture of America. In October 2021, he released a new studio album, Peso In My Pocket, that led with “Old School,” the single that debuted at the highest radio entrance on Billboard’s airplay chart.
In 2018, he celebrated the 25th anniversary of his debut No. 1 single, “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” with the re-release of his remastered debut album with the addition of three vault tracks. From the moment that song was released and shot up the charts, the engine driving everything has been the music, which includes writing, arranging and producing it.
At the core is his songwriting, recognized by his 2015 induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York City and his 2021 induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. Keith has sold more than 40 million albums, more than 10 billion streams, 98 million BMI performances, and has 32 No. 1 hit singles. He has written a No. 1 hit every year for 20 straight years, including “Who’s That Man,” “Me Too,” “How Do You Like Me Now?!,” “You Shouldn’t Kiss Me Like This,” “I’m Just Talkin’ About Tonight,” “Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue (The Angry American),” “Who’s Your Daddy?,” “Beer For My Horses,” “I Love This Bar,” “American Soldier,” “Whiskey Girl,” “As Good As I Once Was,” “She Never Cried in Front of Me,” “God Love Her,” and “Made in America.”
There have been unexpected highlights along the way for Keith, including country’s most impactful viral event, “Red Solo Cup,” the video for which has received more than 60 million views and was named ACM Video of the Year.
In 2018, Keith also released a new song, “Don’t Let The Old Man In,” which was inspired by a conversation he had with Clint Eastwood and was later featured in Eastwood’s movie, “The Mule.” His 11 USO tours to date have enhanced the lives of nearly 256,000 troops and military families in 18 countries with more than 285 events and has been recognized with the Spirit of the USO Award in 2014.
Breathing fresh Rocky Mountain air into the Nashville music scene, Munsick is pioneering a new brand of country. The Wyoming-born singer-songwriter’s upbringing was a mix of working the ranch and working crowds. Under the tutelage of their fiddle-playing father, Munsick and his two older brothers grew up playing everything from bluegrass to The Beatles.
Incorporating elements across genres, he has now begun to establish himself as a progressive artist with an old soul. He released a self-titled EP in 2017, winning iHeartRadio’s Rocky Mountain Song of the Year for the rootsy “Horses Are Faster” and becoming the only artist who simultaneously qualified two tracks as finalists in the NSAI/CMT songwriting competition.
Since then, Munsick has signed a major label record deal with Warner Music Nashville, earned more than 100 million global streams and was named one of Spotify’s inaugural Hot Country Artists to Watch. His debut album “Coyote Cry” features his mile-high tenor underscoring self-penned songs that conjure equal parts epic adventure and down-to-earth wisdom.
