Read why…

Toby has agreed to perform at an event in Saudi Arabia this weekend while US President Donald Trump is visiting the nation. Toby, who also played Trump’s pre-inaugural celebration, will be performing in the Saudi capital. It’s free, but women are banned from the event (man and woman are segregated.)  There’s also some question as to whether some of Toby’s songs will be banned. Alcohol is strictly banned in the country as is its advertising. Some of Toby’s biggest hits include songs like “Whiskey Girl,” “Beer For My Horses”, “I Love This Bar”, “Red Solo Cup”, etc.

Critics would like to have seen Toby take a stand against the ban and refuse to perform. Or offer to do a show there only for women. What do you think?
