Toby Keith iPhone App Now Available

LOS ANGELES Fans of superstar Toby Keith now have access to up-to-the-moment information with the just-released official iPhone app here. Through the application, fans will be able to listen to tracks, view show schedules and purchase tickets, access the official store and engage with other fans that have downloaded the app via the Fan Wall.

"The country music fan audience is unlike any other we've seen. They tend to have a higher level of engagement between artist and fan and consume a lot of content," said Michael Schneider, CEO of Mobile Roadie, the platform powering the app. "We're excited to add Toby Keith to our line-up of A-list artists using app technology to further engage with their audience."

Toby Keith has been among the top musical performers in any genre throughout this decade, and is ranked among the top selling artists in all-genres at #3 on Billboard's Top 200 Artists of the Decade. He was also named Billboard's #1 Country Artist of the Decade and #1 Country Songwriter of the Decade, and was honored by Nashville Songwriters Assn. International (NSAI), which awarded him its prestigious Songwriter/Artist of the Decade Award. He is also a three-time BMI Country Artist/Songwriter of the Year with his catalog generating more than 65 million performances. Keith's business empire is as expansive as his hit making ability, encompassing restaurants, movies, a clothing line and his own record label. In this decade alone, his singles have spent more than a year at No. 1 on the charts. And his tours continue to be among the top-drawing concerts in the world of entertainment. In 2009, Keith's U.S. America's Toughest Tour played to more than a million people, marking the ninth consecutive year the hard-touring artist crossed the impressive million ticket threshold. On June 19th, he will kick off his Ford Trucks sponsored American Ride Tour that will take him across the US through out the summer.
