Named Billboard's Country Artist of the Decade for 2000-10, Keith has sold over 40 million albums and appeared on the country music charts more than 60 times during his career.
 
The event will benefit Café Liberty, a Wheaton-based nonprofit that provides free culinary job training and placement for Chicago-area veterans in need.
 
"We're thrilled to have an artist of Toby Keith's stature as headliner for the inaugural Freedom & Dignity festival," Dan Gibbons, founder and executive director of Café Liberty and The Dan Gibbons Foundation, said in the announcement. "We're expecting more than 12,500 attendees for the 2019 event, which will support our efforts to provide free job training programs and improve the quality of veterans' lives in our local communities."
 
Café Liberty's culinary training program professionally trains veterans and adult members of their families for a career in the food service industry and assists in job placement upon graduation. Chef Cheryl Corrado, former executive chef at CHIC (Cooking & Hospitality Institute of Chicago -- Le Cordon Bleu) developed the curriculum and is lead instructor.
