Krystal Covel Sandubrae, known professionally as Krystal Keith, is a country singer like her father. In 2004, Krystal sang with Toby Keith covering Inez and Charlie Foxx’s song “Mockingbird.” After graduating from the University of Oklahoma, Krystal continued to pursue her music career signing on with Show-Dog-Universal Music in 2013.  In the middle of 2013, Krystal released her first four song extended play, debuting her 1st single “Daddy Dance with Me.” She created a sweet memory for her father by surprising him when she sang it on her wedding day. Currently, Krystal juggles her music career with her busy family life.

The youngest child of Toby and Tricia is their son, Stelen. Unlike his sister Krystal, Stelen prefers the behind-the-scenes music career. He has teamed up with longtime friend Zeke Benoit, grandson of Howard Pollack, who’s known for large venue music concerts. Stelen and Zeke grew up behind the scenes and co-founded Nostalgic Nights, a concert booking company. During an interview with OUDaily, Stelen shared, “I’ve seen it all up-close and personal for my entire life.” It seems like a natural fit for Stelen.
