Toby Keith gets into the custom motorcycle business
Singer buys a stake in respected bike builder Brass Balls Cycles
Serial entrepreneur and recent Forbes magazine cover boy Toby Keith is venturing into yet another new business. The country star and motorcycle enthusiast has taken an ownership stake in Brass Balls Cycles, an Oklahoma City-based custom/production bike builder. Keith’s involvement will be formally announced Aug. 6 when the singer headlines the Sturgis Buffalo Chip Motorcycle Rally.
With Keith’s help, the company has plans to expand internationally, as well as increasing its U.S. market presence.
Meanwhile, at the Sturgis Rally, the Brass Balls team will be featured in a bike build-off being filmed for CMT. The finished motorcycle will be given to a Vietnam vet at the conclusion of the event. Earlier this year, Brass Balls Cycles built a custom bike that was raffled to support the Toby Keith Foundation’s OK Kids Korral project.
Keith’s other business ventures include a Nashville-based record label (Show Dog-Universal Music), a national chain of restaurants (I Love This Bar and Grill), his own line of mezcal (Wild Shot) and a country club and golf course in his current hometown of Norman, Okla.
I was in toby keiths bar and grill in OKC a couple of years ago. a six year old kid got up and went over to ask for toby's autograph. toby cussed the kid out told him to get the hell out of the way he did not have time to sign autographs. the kid started crying and ran back to his grandparents. he was so hysterical that that they had to leave the restaurant.
WHO THE HELL DOES THAT TO A 6 YEAR OLD KID?
WHAT AN ****
#1 How old is that picture? At least 20 years, I'd guess.
#2 His hometown in Moore, Oklahoma, NOT Norman.
#3 How many people commenting on this article and love him are from Oklahoma? Few, if not none.
#4 Ask the people who actually know him. He's nothing but a self-promoting, egotistical hypocrite.
#5 Why does he insist on hanging out on the OU football sidelines? Many people suspect it's so he can watch the boys in the locker room. He's not an athlete, he's a jock sniffer.
#6 Did he pay back the bank that foreclosed on his house years ago and sold for a loss?
#7 HE caters to the lowest common denominator in American society, drinking beer, chasing whores, and oh, yes... I'm a great American. Didn't you see the flag decal I stick on things.
#8 I think others have summed up this a**hole pretty well: White trash with money.
p.s. That daughter is an untalented jerk. Probably dumber than her old man.
You were awsome at the Buffalo Chip my friend! What a perfect place to announce your new business adventure...the world of bikers is certainly supporting you. Come on back next year! Sturgis2013
Once again, Toby Keith has shown he is a TRUE AMERICAN! His support for various groups, and especially, the U S Troops in the Middle East is far above and beyond what most people even know! We love you, Toby, and sincerely hope that your newest venture takes off as well as you hope! Thanks for your support, and as a mother of a U.S. soldier who was in both Afghanistan and in Irac, I salute you!!!!!
For all those with nasty words for Toby...
Please tell me of another ACTOR or ACTRESS, or RAPPER that does anything near what this man does for Charity, in particular our US ARMED FORCES, but current and Vets, both disabled and abled...?
Given the money this man has made, it's easy to call him arrogant, and towards those making nasty comments, you might wanna check your mirror as that may SHOW YOU why he'd be arrogant towards YOU.
Again, compare JayZ and Beyoncé, who had time to fly to CUBA, but don't know where Irag and Afghanistan are, and haven't played for our troops overseas.
Compare to Kanye, Sean Penn, Clooney, Dixie Chicks..I could keep going, but ALL of these PALE in comparison to what TK has done and continues to do, in particular for our US ARMED FORCED.
I get it, MOST of those posting nasty don't like him because of one of the following reasons...He's white, he's Conservative, he plays Country Music, he's a redneck, he's a country boy.
IF that's the BEST you have, then take a look at what you see in the mirror, as it's far less appealing and less impressive than what Toby has done.
Only an IDIOT would write nasty things about what Toby has done, looks like quite a few are posting today.
