Toby Keith

After headlines and amateur video surfaced about Toby Keith's confrontation with a fan who threw a beer onstage at his Kentucky concert last week, he hasn't said much on the issue. 

As Toby explains, he loves performing live so it takes a lot to get him riled up, and he's not concerned about his reaction:  


 

"Thank God we've got what we've got and we can come here every day and do what we do. So, you've gotta hate on me first... You wanna get me going, you've gotta hate on me first. It doesn't matter to me. I don't care. You know, it's pretty hard to go out there and say you pray the serenity prayer all the time and then back off and act like it really does matter to you, these other things. 'Cause you can ask the people closest to me my promoter, my booking agent, my manager, my band, people that are around me everyday - I really don’t care... [laughs] I really don't care."
