Toby Keith to Light up Boston on the Fourth of July

Country music megastar Toby Keith will be performing with the Boston Pops for the Fourth of July concert on the Charles River Esplanade. According to, that concert begins in 24 days, 9 hours, 8 minutes, and 17 seconds.

No word yet on whether Toby and the Boston Pops will be performing Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American):

Now this nation that I love has fallen under attack.
A mighty sucker punch came flying in from somewhere in the back.
Soon as we could see clearly through our big black eye,
Man we lit up your world like the Fourth of July.

Hey Uncle Sam put your name at the top of his list,
And the Statue of Liberty started shaking her fist.
And the eagle will fly,
And there's gonna be Hell,
When you hear Mother Freedom start ringing her bell!
It's gonna feel like the whole wide world is raining down on you...
Brought to you courtesy of the Red, White and Blue!

Oh, Justice will be served and the battle will rage.
This big dog will fight when you rattle his cage
You'll be sorry that you messed with the US of A
'Cuz we'll put a boot in your ass
It's the American way.

They could perform it with live cannon fire, church bells, and fireworks as is the Boston Pops tradition for the William Tell Overture. That I would cross the river to see!

By the way, I don't think Toby Keith consults with experts to learn whose ass to kick. He just knows. And there is no Harvard comma in the title of his most notorious song.
