Toby Keith to join Boston Pops on July 4
BOSTON — Country music star Toby Keith will celebrate Independence Day with the Boston Pops.
Liberty Mutual, the event’s sponsor, announced Wednesday that Keith will join conductor Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops for the annual Fourth of July concert and fireworks show on the banks of the Charles River.
The 40-year-old singer-songwriter’s hits include “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” ”You Shouldn’t Kiss Me Like This,” and “Courtesy of the Red, White, & Blue.”
The “Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular,” hosted by Craig Ferguson of “The Late Late Show,” will be televised nationally on CBS.
Keith’s latest album, “American Ride,” was released last year by Show Dog Nashville.
