"Maybe Toby should be sitting in this week during the President's big financial summit." - Neil Haislop
Meanwhile, a special message from Toby was just posted on his official website.
"To my Warriors: The Biggest and Baddest summertime tour ended in Salt Lake City Saturday night. Now we are headed up to Canada to play some shows and we will continue the Biggest and Baddest tour after the first of the year. I want to stop and thank you for the support you have shown. It’s always good to see so many familiar faces in the crowds and at the meet and greets throughout the tour. It’s been a full year for us writing and filming a movie, my annual USO tour to Iraq and Afghanistan, a 35 Biggest Hits CD release, the movie hitting theaters, my new studio album October 28th and the Beer For My Horses DVD release November 11. I am looking forward to seeing you again down the road and thanks again for always being there."
