Toby Keith, a country music performer, has come forward to say that he has been battling stomach cancer since the latter half of the previous year, but that he has completed treatment and will be performing again very soon. On his official Instagram and Twitter pages, Keith shared information regarding his cancer diagnosis, stating that he was given a diagnosis of stomach cancer in the fall of 2017.
In the post that he wrote, he discussed his feelings on the battle against cancer that he has been fighting for the past half a year. He shared the news with his supporters that he was getting treatment for cancer, which included chemotherapy, surgical procedures, and radiation therapy. In his statement, he also said that he is currently recuperating from his illness, resting, and spending time with his family. This was all part of his explanation. However, he will very soon get the chance to talk to his admirers.
Regarding Keith and his work in the music industry
Before deciding to pursue a career as a musician, Keith, who was born and raised in Oklahoma, held jobs in the oil industry and played quarterback for USFL football teams. Mercury issued his self-titled debut album in 1993, which went on to become a commercial success after it was distributed to more than one million customers.
The primary reason for Keith’s notoriety is the conservatism of his political views. His most well-known songs are “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue (The Angry American),” which was released in 2002 and was partially motivated by the terrorist events that occurred on September 11, 2001.
The music of Keith has seen a great deal of popularity and is recognized as being among the best country tunes. His most recent album is titled “Peso in My Pocket,” and it features the country single “Old School,” which peaked in the top 25.
Induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame took place for Keith in the month of November of 2017. Recent events include him performing at the Heroes Honor Festival held at Daytona International Speedway.
There is a possibility that Keith’s forthcoming performance will not take place.
Due to the fact that Keith has been diagnosed with cancer, according to his publicist Elaine Schock, he will not be singing at any of his upcoming gigs for an extended period of time. This past tour of his was scheduled to start this coming Friday. The first date of Keith’s tour to promote his new album “Peso in My Pocket” was scheduled to take place on June 17, and the tour was scheduled to visit other cities. The performance that was scheduled to take place on July 28 at the Ohio State Fair has been scrapped, but there has been no official notification regarding the status of the concert’s continuation, postponement, or cancellation.
Additionally, Keith has a track record of assisting youngsters who are battling cancer. According to the website of the Toby Keith Foundation, he established the charity in 2006 with the intention of assisting children who are afflicted with cancer.
