Celebrate a great night of country music when Toby Keith brings his Should’ve Been A Cowboy Tour XXV Presented By Ford F-Series to the Washington State Fair. Special guest Ned LeDoux will also take the stage, Saturday, Sept. 15. The familiar maxim of the triple threat – singer, songwriter, entertainer – doesn’t begin to cover it for Toby Keith, one of the modern era’s most complete self-directed hit makers. 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 90 million BMI performances on commercial radio stations worldwide. Keith’s albums have sold more than 40 million copies.
In country music, a last name like LeDoux casts a big, storied and bittersweet shadow, but it’s one Ned LeDoux doesn’t mind standing in one bit. Having been a drummer in his dad Chris’ band Western Underground since 1998, Ned knew from an early age that he had “no plan b” but to play music. “Once I got the taste of the road, and being in front of a crowd and just the sound of it, it was…freedom, LeDoux said.”
