HEARTWARMING STORY ABOUT TOBY KEITH IN MONTANA

The story behind the photo was also shared on Facebook, and it's a great reminder of the type of person that Toby Keith was.

We’d stopped for fuel in one of those small towns in Montana that the railroad and the interstate have forgotten. Word had already spread that somebody famous was on one of the motorcycles. The Big Dog and a few of us went into the general store to see if they might sell us a sandwich. A little girl walked up to the man and asked him for his autograph.
I pointed at him and looked at the kid, asking
“Did that fella try and tell you he was Toby Keith?”
There was about a half second of terror on the precious li’l girls face before we all burst out laughing.
Toby, I hope Kirby was waiting for you at the gates of heaven making them second guess your credentials.

Thanks for all of the memories, Toby. Montana will definitely miss you.
