Toby Keith Is Playing For Peace
Toby Keith is about to travel overseas, but it's not for one of his many military tours this time. Instead, he'll be performing at the 16th Annual Nobel Peace Prize Concert on Dec. 11 in Oslo, Norway.
The concert, hosted by Hollywood powerhouse couple Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, will also feature performances by Donna Summer and Wyclef Jean, with more artists expected to be added to the line-up. Last year's concert included a performance by Dierks Bentley.
While Toby hasn't spoken publicly about the upcoming event, Will and Jada have expressed their gratitude. "The opportunity to recognize the laureate's contributions to the world peace movement will be an awe-inspiring experience," the duo write in a joint statement. "We are both humbled and honored to take part in the Nobel Peace Prize Concert this year, and look forward to sharing the historic evening with artists and humanitarians from across the globe."
The recipient of this year's Nobel Peace Prize will be revealed on Oct. 9.
