Toby Keith to headline 'Country Night' at Lakes Jam festival next summer


Country music megastar Toby Keith has been revealed as one of the headline acts at next summer's Lakes Jam festival in Brainerd.

The "I Love This Bar" singer, who has sold more than 40 million albums, will headline "Country Night" at the three-day festival than runs between June 23-25, organizers announced Friday.

He will take to the Lakes Jam stage at Brainerd International Raceway on the Friday night, June 24, the Brainerd Dispatch reports.

Tickets for the festival, which the newspaper notes "unites rock and country music fans," are now on sale, with more national and local music acts set to be announced in the coming months.

You can buy tickets here. They start at $19 for a Thursday pass, rising to $69 for Friday and Saturday, while 3-day passes can be bought for $99 if ordered before the New Year.

Classic rock band Styx, known for "Come Sail Away" and "Lady," were named on Thursday as the rock headliner for the final night of the festival.

As well as his music, Toby Keith is also known for his small chain of restaurants called "Toby Keith's I Love This Bar and Grill."

The chain hit the headlines in Minnesota in June when its St. Louis Park restaurant closed down abruptly, after it featured on a Minnesota revenue list of companies that hadn't paid enough taxes.

That same month, the Business Journal reported it was looking for a possible location in downtown Minneapolis following the St. Louis Park closure.
