Toby Keith Celebrates Million-Air Windfall

Posted in News on April 7, 2003
BMI Nashville caught up with Toby Keith recently to take care of a little songwriting paperwork -- the performing rights organization presented Keith and his publishing company Tokeco Tunes with Million-Air certificates for eight of his hits. The eight certificates represent a total of 15 million broadcast performances -- or approximately 85 years of continuous airplay.
