Toby Keith Gets in the Swing


Toby Keith has pegged June 6-7 for his annual Toby Keith & Friends Golf Classic, a benefit tournament designed to raise money for pediatric cancer patients and their families.

"This will be our fifth year with this event, and we're always trying to take it to the next level," Toby says.

The event takes place at the Belmar Golf Course in Norman, Okla., with a dinner, live music and a live auction of autographed celebrity items, in addition to the time on the green.

In the previous four classics, Toby raised more than $1.5 million for Ally's House, an Oklahoma organization. The event was inspired by the cancer-related 2003 death of Ally Webb, the two-year-old daughter of Toby's former bandmate Scott Webb.

Milestones for Luke Bryan, Lee Roy Parnell


Happy days are here in the personal lives of two very different country artists: Newcomer Luke Bryan just became a daddy, and 1990s hitmaker Lee Roy Parnell is about to become a husband.

Luke and his wife, Caroline, had a son yesterday at a Middle Tennessee hospital. Named Thomas Boyer Bryan, he'll be referred to as "Bo." The baby weighed 6 lbs., 14 oz., and is 20 inches long.

"Watching my wife bring our son into this world is a feeling I can't even put into words," Luke says. "It's definitely one of the greatest moments in my life. Caroline and Bo are doing great." So is Lee Roy, whose hits include the very appropriate ballad "Love Without Mercy." He met his fiancée, Julie Albertson, at a charity event sponsored by BMI and Gibson Guitars, for whom he's an official spokesman. They'll marry this fall in Nashville.
