Skyville Live has announced the addition of Toby Keith to a very special lineup honoring Jerry Lee Lewis on August 24th. The superstar joins previously announced performers Kris Kristofferson, Chris Stapleton, Lee Ann Womack and Waylon Payne, and additional artists will be announced prior to the show.
“Toby Keith is not only a consummate performer, but he’s a brilliant musicologist. He knows as much about the life and times and music of Jerry Lee Lewis as anyone out there,” commented Wally Wilson, creator of Skyville Live. “We’re thrilled to welcome him to the Skyville Live stage for the first time and have him join this phenomenal lineup.”
The show will film live in front of a studio audience on August 24 and streaming details will be announced at a later date. The latest edition of Skyville Live will also feature the Skyville Live band of industry elites. Led by guitarist Kenny Greenberg, the band features the best session musicians around including Mike Rojas (keys,) Mickey Raphael (harmonica,) Fred Eltringham (drums,) Justin Schipper (pedal steel/utility) and backup singers.
Unique and unexpected pairings will add to the growing list of once-in-a-lifetime collaborations delivered only by Skyville Live, from Lady Antebellum, Jason Isbell, Jewel, Brandy Clark and Amanda Shires bringing down the house with Kris Kristofferson on his classic “Me and Bobby McGee” to a fiery take on “Come to My Window” with Cam joining Melissa Etheridge on stage to the impassioned performance of Steve Earle’s “Pilgrim” featuring the acclaimed songwriter alongside Emmylou Harris, Brothers Osborne, Margo Price and Colter Wall.
