Keith Rocks During Crossroads Special

Toby Keith rocked a little harder than usual in Houston during Saturday’s (Jan. 31) star-packed concert the night before the Super Bowl. Toby Keith’s Shock’n Y’all Super Bowl Party: A CMT Crossroads Special was telecast live. With an audience filled with military personnel from Fort Hood, Texas, Keith introduced Willie Nelson, who performed his signature “Whiskey River.” Nelson later provided moral and musical support when Keith and bandmate Scotty Emerick performed the comical “I’ll Never Smoke Week With Willie Again.” Proving a connection does exist between country and rap, Darryl McDaniels of Run DMC assisted on Keith’s “I Wanna Talk About Me.” Other highlights included the closing number, “A Little Bit Talk and a Lot More Action,” featuring Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, Sammy Hagar and a surprise appearance by Ted Nugent.
