Live At The Creek Brings TOBY KEITH To Burls Creek, Ontario!

Attention: Arts/Entertainment Editor, Lifestyle Editor BARRIE, ONTARIO ENTERTAINMENT MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - Aug. 13, 2009) - Live At The Creek Brings Toby Keith - one of the most consistently successful musicians in America and the fourth best selling artist in the US this decade across all musical formats - is set to make an appearance in Ontario with an exciting RAIN or SHINE outdoor show at Burl's Creek north of Barrie, Ontario on Friday September 25th, 2009.

The multi-talented superstar is a Grammy nominated recording artist, record producer, accomplished live performer AND songwriter whose music has sold more than 25 million albums in this decade alone and now has an entertainment empire that includes his own record label, movies, restaurants and more. Since the turn of the decade Toby Keith has grossed hundreds of millions in ticket sales and his songs have spent more than a year at No. 1 on the Billboard charts.

Toby Keith left Oklahoma for Nashville with a handful of demos that formed the basis of his self-titled 1993 debut album and touched off a string of self-penned hits that form the foundation of his career: "Who's Your Daddy?" "Courtesy", "Cowboy", "How Do You Like Me Know", "God Love Her" and "Beer For My Horses" . And that's barely scratching the surface.

BMI recently honored Keith for 50 million airplay performances of his songs, a figure that with the help of two more number one hits from the album "That Don't Make Me A Bad Guy", is now closer to 70 million. This puts him in company with hit makers like Elton John, The Bee Gees and John Lennon. What's remarkable, then, about Keith's career is simply longevity - the enduring relevance of his writing. As they say in the publishing world, the only thing harder than having a hit is having two.

"Rarely has Mr. Keith... appeared looser or calmer. He eased into his songs, toying around with them like the standards they've become - adding new lyrics to "I Love This Bar," tweaking old ones to "Get Drunk and Be Somebody" and "I'm Just Talkin' About Tonight." For a stretch of songs midshow ("You Shouldn't Kiss Me Like This," "She Never Cried in Front of Me") he was a gentle soul man, and he detoured during "A Little Less Talk and a Lot More Action" into a braying cover of Ted Nugent's "Stranglehold."

Burl's Creek is a 390 acre park facility located 16 km north of Barrie, Ontario with easy access to both Highway 11 and the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport.
