  2. I expected more media being done for Toby Keith. He’s an icon who lied his country, family,and fans. He entertained us till the very end. I think it’s a shame that drug dealers to street fighters get more attention than a larger than life entertainer and patriot like Toby Keith. If they ever decide on the date for his fans to pay their respect, I will be there. Rest in peace Big Dog we love you💖, and miss you.
