Toby Keith Makes Heartbreaking Announcement But Remains Hopeful For a Return

Country music singer, songwriter, and actor Toby Keith revealed on Sunday that he has started treatment for stomach cancer. According to his post, he was diagnosed with the illness in the fall of 2021.

During the last six months, the multi-platinum-selling artist has been receiving chemo treatments and radiations and has undergone a surgery.
“Last fall, I was diagnosed with stomach cancer,” the country icon, 60, said on social media. “I’ve spent the last 6 months receiving chemo, radiation and surgery. So far, so good. I need time to breathe, recover, and relax.”

He was scheduled to perform on Friday at the BBQ festival but his performance was cancelled as the Ribfest’s website says the festival is “actively seeking a replacement for Toby Keith to join Elle King on Friday, June 17. Instructions for refund requests will be available in the future.”

The musician added that he’s “looking forward to spending this time with my family. But I will see the fans sooner than later. I can’t wait.”

Many of Keith’s fellow country singers shared their well wishes and prayers.

“Damn bro,” Jason Aldean wrote. “Hate ur dealing with that, but if anybody can kick Cancer’s ass, it’s you. Prayin for ya big man.”
“Praying for a full healing in your body!!” RaeLynn added.

Keith’s publicist, Elaine Schock, said in an email Sunday night that some tour dates will be canceled, “but I’m not sure how many at this point.”

We are certain he will win this battle.
