They celebrated Oklahoma's centennial internationally through their performances with a tour of Japan and Thailand. They also filmed a documentary of this tour as an official OK Centennial Project, and performed 32 shows at the 2000 Oklahoma State Fair Centennial Expo at the Oklahoman Stage. Opening for the Oak Ridge Boys was one of the many highlights of 2012, as well as the Charlie Daniels Band in 2013. Kyle and Horseshoe Road were selected by the U.S. State Department for a month-long world tour through Taiwan, South Korea, Burma and Russia as part of their American Music Abroad program. Out of 300 bands nationwide, Horseshoe Road was one of 12 chosen for the 2012-2013 season.
