Zach Bryan paid tribute to his fellow Oklahoma native, Toby Keith, with a robust cover performance of the late legend's patriotic anthem, "Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue (The Angry American)," on Friday night (Feb. 9.)

Bryan dusted off his rendition towards the end of his set list for his Super Bowl Weekend concert, which was part of the Bud Light Backyard Tour in Las Vegas, Nev.

"America lost a really, really important Oklahoma boy this week," Bryan said as he introduced the performance, before launching into a gritty, impassioned rendition of Keith's beloved and controversial hit from 2002. When he reached the chorus of "Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue," a number of Bryan's friends and family hopped onstage to join him for a passionate sing-a-along.

A couple personal touches made Bryan's performance extra effective: For example, he swapped Keith's lyric, "My daddy served in the Army" for "My daddy served in the Navy," a nod to the fact that both Bryan and his father are Navy veterans.

The Bud Light Backyard Tour also served as the singer's announcement that he's partnering with the beer brand on his upcoming 2024 Quittin' Time Tour: A portion of proceeds from Bud Light sales at his shows will be donated to Folds of Honor, an organization that provides scholarships to the families of fallen American first responders.
