Dixie Chicks should take note - Fleetwood Mac and Toby Keith will be around for a long time:

Freedom of Thought...doesn't mean a lack of thought Toby Keith and Fleetwood Mac in Tune With the Troops
Got this in an email from NewsMax:
Toby Keith surprised everyone by showing up at a parade in Valley Center, Ks., for former POW Pfc. Patrick Miller. Apparently, Miller had made his Iraqi captors mad by singing Keith's power-packed piece "Courtesy of the Red White & Blue."
Miller had been persuaded to perform the song with some school friends during the festivities. All of a sudden a local pastor, Bobby Massey, interrupted and announced, "I think it would be better if we got someone who knows how to sing it."
Out of the crowd stepped Toby Keith. Keith went on stage and performed the tune with Miller as the soldier tried to hold back tears of joy.
Afterward, Keith gave Miller the guitar he had played during the performance.
Meanwhile, members of Fleetwood Mac used the opening of the group's first North American tour at the Value City Arena in Columbus, Ohio, to display some gratitude for our troops.
The veteran rockers donated 200 tickets to local radio station QFM96. The tickets were given away to those who are currently serving, or who have already served, in any branch of the U.S. armed forces.
