SUPERSTAR TOBY KEITH TO PERFORM MERLE HAGGARD TRIBUTE AT THE “2016 AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS”  

COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS
SUPERSTAR TOBY KEITH TO PERFORM MERLE HAGGARD TRIBUTE
 AT THE “2016 AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS” Academy Award® Winner Matthew McConaughey to Introduce Tribute

2nd Annual Country Music Awards Show Airs Live Sunday, May 1, On FOX

 Superstar singer/songwriter Toby Keith will perform a heartfelt tribute in celebration of his friend and musical hero Merle Haggard at the 2016 AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS airing live from The Forum in Inglewood, Calif., Sunday, May 1 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX. Oscar®-winning actor Matthew McConaughey will introduce the tribute to the late legendary songwriter who inspired countless musicians and who is one of country music’s greatest icons.

Haggard’s longtime back-up band, The Strangers, will join Keith as part of this memorable performance. In addition, Haggard’s widow, Theresa, will be in attendance along with other members of the Haggard family, including son Ben, who also will perform with The Strangers.

Keith joins previously announced performers Kelsea Ballerini, 2016 NASH Icon Award recipients Brooks & Dunn, Luke Bryan, Cam, Dan + Shay, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Martina McBride, Thomas Rhett, Cole Swindell and Carrie Underwood.

From his first No. 1 smash “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” to his new album 35 mph Town, Toby Keith has been one of the most consistent self-directed hit makers of his era. His single, “Made In America” (from the album Clancy’s Tavern) topped the charts as one of the fastest rising songs in a long line of his chart burners. The second hit, “Red Solo Cup,” has become one of the most commercially successful country singles with a viral video garnering more than 30 million views while having topped the top downloaded country songs charts. The first single from 35 mph Town, “Drunk Americans,” debuted at No. 1 Most Added on both the Billboard and Country Aircheck/Mediabase charts.

At the core of Keith’s unparalleled success is his songwriting, with an astounding succession of hit songs to the tune of more than 87 million BMI performances on commercial radio stations worldwide. In June 2015, he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall Of Fame, and he has been honored by the Nashville Songwriters Association International with its Songwriter/Artist of the Decade distinction. He is a three-time BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year and was named the American Country Awards’ Artist of the Decade. His albums have sold more than 40 million copies, ranking him among the top-selling all-genre artists on Billboard’s Top 200 Artists of the Decade; he is also Billboard’s No. 1 Country Artist of the Decade and No. 1 Country Songwriter of the Decade. His tours have drawn more than one million fans each year for the last decade. This year’s tour, Interstates & Tailgates presented by Ford F-Series, kicks off in May with dates scheduled throughout North America. However Keith’s most rewarding experiences come from giving back. Whether it’s helping sick children and their families in his native Oklahoma through the Toby Keith Foundation and the cost-free home OK Kids Korral, or supporting US Troops, including 11 USO Tours throughout the world, Keith has never lost touch with the most important things in life.

Matthew McConaughey will next be seen in the June 24th release of Free State of Jones, an epic action-drama set during the Civil War that tells the story of defiant Southern farmer, Newt Knight, and his extraordinary armed rebellion against the Confederacy. In 2016 he will also lend his voice to Kubo and the Two Strings and Sing as well as star in Gold, directed by Stephen Gaghan.

The AMERICAN COUNTRY COUNTDOWN AWARDS is based on country music’s longest-running radio countdown show (43 years), “American Country Countdown with Kix Brooks,” and honors country music’s biggest stars, based on album sales and radio airplay.  Finalists and winners for all categories are based on radio airplay charts, sales and streaming data from April 1, 2015 to March 28, 2016 provided by BuzzAngle Music. Touring data is from Pollstar “The Concert Hotwire.”

    The “Hollywood Film Awards” today announced that multi-talented Academy and Emmy Award nominated, Golden Globe Award-winning actress, Grammy Award-winning musician and talk show host Queen Latifah, will host the inaugural broadcast of the HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS, live from the Hollywood Palladium Friday, November 14, 2014 (8:00-10:00 PM, live ET/delayed PT) on the CBS Television Network.  The “Hollywood Film Awards” has recognized excellence in the art of cinema and filmmaking for 17 years, honoring some of the world’s biggest stars. They are considered the official launch of the awards season.

“I’m honored to be a part of such a legendary award show,” stated Latifah. “The HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS have been a staple in the awards season for years, and I’m excited to be the first host to bring them to television!”

“Queen Latifah is the real deal. She is a triple threat – she can act, she can sing, she can dance – she is beloved by audiences across multiple genres and she entertains millions of people every day,” said Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President of Specials, Music and Live Events for CBS. “We look forward to having her as our host for the inaugural broadcast of the HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS.”

“Queen Latifah is a world-class entertainer,” said Carlos de Abreu, Founder and Executive Producer of the Hollywood Film Awards. “From film and music to television, her humor, quick wit and ability to entertain live audiences make her the perfect choice to host the HOLLYWOOD FILM AWARDS.”

Latifah was anointed hip-hop’s first lady of rap at the age of 19 with the release of her highly successful debut album, “All Hail The Queen.” She went on to release multiple Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling albums, and in 2006 she became the first hip-hop artist to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Latifah has enjoyed similar success in television and film. Her first TV series was “Living Single,” and she has starred in nearly 40 films, including, “Jungle Fever,” “Living Out Loud,” “The Bone Collector,” “Chicago,” “Hairspray,” “Bringing Down the House,” “The Secret Life of Bees,” “Last Holiday,” “Beauty Shop” and “Joyful Noise.” Also, she executive produced and starred in the HBO true-life drama, “Life Support,” for which she won a Golden Globe award, a SAG award and an Emmy nomination. Her production company, Flavor Unit Entertainment, was founded in 1993 with partner Shakim Compere. The Miami-based studio currently has several films and television series in production, including VH1’s “Single Ladies” and the upcoming The CW reality show, “The Star Next Door.” Additionally, Latifah has written two best-selling books on self-esteem and designed a successful clothing and beauty line for HSN. Currently, she is the host of “The Queen Latifah Show,” a daily syndicated talk show, which she is producing with Shakim Compere and Overbrook Entertainment’s Will Smith, Jada Smith and James Lassiter.
