From the moment Toby Keith’s debut single "Should've Been A Cowboy" shot up the charts to become his first No. 1 hit, the engine driving everything else has been the music. At the core is Keith’s songwriting, as recognized in his 2015 induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in New York City.

The Nashville Songwriters Association International named Keith Songwriter/Artist of the Decade, and he is a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year. His songs have received more than 87 million BMI performances on commercial radio stations worldwide, while his albums have sold more than 40 million copies. Keith has won numerous honors and awards during his career including Artist of the Decade nods from Billboard and the American Country Awards, as well as the ACM's Career Achievement honor. His most recent album release is 2015’s 35 mph Town, which reached No. 2 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.
