Summertime is just around the corner, which means country music’s hottest artists are gearing up for tour season to launch into overdrive. And there’s no exception for Toby Keith, who just announced his 2012 tour coming in June, with several stops in Central New York.

Keith’s Live in Overdrive Tour is set to kick off on June 14 in Salt Lake City, Utah and will run through September. The high-profile trek will feature Georgia’s own superstar Brantley Gilbert as the opening act.

In addition to a flurry of new tour dates, Keith can also be found on television in the coming weeks, as he has several appearances scheduled including ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show,’ ‘The Tonight Show With Jay Leno’ and ‘Chelsea Lately.’ Keith will also be performing at the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards on April 1, which will air live at 8:00PM ET on CBS. That night, Keith is up for three big nominations.

Keith’s latest single ‘Beers Ago’ is the third release from his ‘Clancy’s Tavern’ album, following his No. 1 hit, ‘Made in America’ and the smash, ‘Red Solo Cup.’
