Toby Keith Concert

Toby Keith Concert came to Blossom Music Center with great fanfare. Toby is loved by the gents as well as the girls. There was a crowd of 22,00 for the show, not bad considering it rained from Thursday until Saturday at 2:00 PM with the 7:30 PM start of the show. There was one addiction from all the rain to the lawn. One section of the lawn became a slip and slide and anyone wearing flip-flops fell. Check out the back of this girl, she was one of 30 who fell and almost everyone had flip-flops on.
This is an example of the guys who were there in groups to see Montgomery Gentry and Toby. Yes, they were having a good time.
There were some short opening acts from Toby's label Show Dog Records and then Montgomery Gentry, We saw them a few years back when Blake Shelton opened for them.
They put on a light show with a lot of their hits and got the crowd warmed up for Toby.
It was with a lot of fanfare and glitter that Toby hit the stage.
He is a big guy but the pulled down cowboy hat makes it hard to capture. He strolled out to the stage amidst a screaming crowd.
Here is another well planned show with all the bells and whistles.
He can sing a balad, so it kept the crowd excited during the show.
He had a big screen behind and here he is looking back to the screen.
The Country Concert Season is over at Blossom and it was a good one. A wet field for this one but we took a plastic tarp and sat on it. There was the rain at Brad's concert but we didn't get to wet. All in all it was a fun series.

I haven't seen Toby in concert yet. But last May we got to see Montgomery Gentry at an outdoor concert. It was great! I am glad that you were able to get pics. My camera is not that sophisticated. One day, one day...

Wow! That's a big crowd for a rainy day. Glad you didn't get too wet and enjoyed the concert.

Note to self: Never wear sandals or go barefoot to a concert where there people will be wearing cowboy boots... even if they have angel tee shirts on.

I'm not a Toby Keith fan at all but I do enjoy hearing about the concerts you go to. This reminds me of something a friend told me. She went to one of the shows Alabama used to have in Fort Payne. She said there were mud holes all over the place and Billy Ray Cyrus got down and crawled around in one. I bet he wouldn't do that now!

Never seen him in person - but LOVE his music. (I'm a closet country girl...don't tell the majority of my friends - they just laugh at me. And they don't know what they're missing!)

I bet that was a blast! I won Rascal Flatts tickets off of the radio and am going to see them and Taylor Swift tonight. I will try to get some pictures to post if they will let me bring my camera in.

I love concerts! So much energy! I'm very glad you had fun.

While my husband was deployed (one of many trips), he was supposed to be able to see Toby but they were in too dangerous an area and couldn't. Friends of Josh's met him in a bar in Germany after that and went up to thank Toby for trying to play a concert in such a rough area and how sorry they had been to have missed it. They offered to buy him a drink (these were Rangers), Toby cussed them out and told them to leave him alone.

We concluded that Toby was having a rough night. He must have a lot of soldiers doing that sort of thing.

Looks like a great time was had by all!

Toby has always been a favorite of mine from his very first single!
Looks like a lot of fun was had by all.
It was nice seeing young ones there at a country concert - there's hope. :)

OK. Now I need to go find out from the gods of YouTube what this guy sounds like. I'm so in the dark, but your images wake me up!

Looks like fun! The girls and the deer hunter love Toby.
