Singer-songwriter Toby Keith, known for his patriotic and sometimes alcohol-focused lyrics, will be in Saudi Arabia this weekend to perform at a men-only event in the capital, Riyadh, according to advertisements in the country.
Keith, a superstar in the American country music scene, will be visiting the Middle Eastern kingdom at the same time as President Donald Trump; it's Trump's first foreign trip as leader of the United States. While in Saudi Arabia, Trump is scheduled to give a speech in support of moderate Islam.
It is not clear whether Keith's performance was designed specifically to coincide with Trump's visit. (Keith performed at Trump's pre-inauguration concert in January. He also has performed at the Obama and Bush inauguration events and is a registered independent.)
