Toby Keith to Perform at State Fair
Illinois State Fair organizers just announced country star Toby Keith will perform at the 2013 fair. He'll play on the grandstand stage Wednesday, August 14.
Keith is a singer-songwriter who was named country music's "Artist of the Decade" last year. His songs include "Made in America," "Beer For My Horses," and "Red Solo Cup."
State fair manager Amy Bliefnick said she's ecstatic he's agreed to perform.
