CornBelters Welcomes Toby Keith Presented by Ford F-Series to the 2017 Summer Concert Lineup!
NORMAL, Ill. – The Normal CornBelters, presented by the Illinois Corn Farmers, are excited to announce superstar Toby Keith to the Corn Crib on June 29, 2017!
From the moment Toby’s debut single “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” shot up the charts to become his first No. 1, the engine driving everything else has been the music. He writes it. He arranges and produces it. And he releases it on his own record label, Show Dog Nashville. At the core is his songwriting, as recognized in his 2015 induction into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame in New York City. The Nashville Songwriters Association International named him 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. Keith’s albums have sold more than 40 million copies. His tours have drawn more than a million fans each year for more than a decade straight, with recent expansion into Europe and Australia.
The awards are too numerous to count and include Artist of the Decade nods from Billboard and the American Country Awards, as well as the ACM’s Career Achievement honor. A musician’s musician, he was a last minute illness stand-in for the late Merle Haggard a few years back and responded to Merle’s query about which of the legend’s songs Keith knew and could cover with, “All of ’em.” And there have been some unexpected highlights along the way as well, including country’s most impactful viral event ever, “Red Solo Cup,” the video for which has received more than 30 million views and was named ACM Video of the Year. Toby’s most rewarding experiences, however, have come from giving back locally, nationally and abroad. His golf classics fund the Toby Keith Foundation and OK Kids Korral, a cost-free home for families of children dealing with critical illnesses. His 11 USO Tours to date have been recognized with the Spirit of the USO Award (2014). And when a tornado ravaged his hometown, Toby Keith was the face of the community and helped shoulder the cleanup with the 2013 OK Twister Relief Concert. Triple threat? How about singer, songwriter, musician, producer, entertainer, humanitarian, Oklahoman and patriot. For starters.
Tickets go on sale January 9th at 9 am to Mini Plan and Season Ticket holders and January 13th at 9 am to the general public. Tickets start at $45.00 for reserved box seats or field general admission and $70.00 for VIP pit.

Colt Ford Joins Toby Keith Concert Line-up
Thursday June 29, 2017 at the Corn Crib
Ford has topped the Billboard Country Charts with several #1 albums. He will release his highly anticipated sixth studio album, “Love Hope Faith” May 5, 2017.
Ford has collaborated with the likes of Jason Aldean, Brantley Gilbert, Jake Owen, Eric Church and Duck Dynasty’s Boss Hog, Willie Robertson. In addition, Ford wrote “Dirt Road Anthem” and “Country Must Be Country Wide”, number one hits for Jason Aldean and Brantley Gilbert, respectively.
Most recently, Ford focused his fundraising efforts on Marcus Luttrell’s “Lone Survivor Foundation.” Proceeds from his hit song, “Workin’ On,” which deals with PTSD, benefit the Foundation.
Colt Ford has a very unique sound. His brand of country combines the style of hip-hop giants like Run-DMC with the spoken word greats like Tex Williams, Roger Miller, Johnny Cash and C.W. McCall who made Convoy famous.
Ford has an impressive social media following with 1.6 million Facebook fans, 330,000 Twitter followers and 100 million YouTube views. He has sold over 1 millions albums and has millions of downloads.

Drew Baldridge to Toby Keith Lineup!
Live on Thursday, June 29th
Drew Baldridge is an Illinois boy born and raised in Patoka. Drew enjoys visiting with fans after a show, and it’s that kind of down home charm combined with a powerful voice and constantly-honed songwriting skills that make Baldridge one of country music’s most promising new talents.
A Drew Baldridge show is high energy show. He grew up soaking up a variety of musical influences – Southern gospel greats The Cathedrals, country superstars Alabama and even Earth, Wind & Fire. Though he loved performing, Some of his songs are party anthems that will make you want to dance. He has a hit called “Dance With Ya.” It’s an interactive song with the audience. His latest song is called “Rebound.” It has charted in the Top 50 and you can catch the music video on CMT.
Baldridge was also an athlete and earned a college scholarship to play baseball. How fitting for Drew to sing at the Corn Crib.
Drew Baldridge has opened up for Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell, Jerrod Niemann, Eric Paslay, Dustin Lynch and others.
