Toby Keith, who is known for his work in country music as a singer, songwriter, and actor, said on Sunday that he has begun treatment for stomach cancer. According to what he said in his article, he was given a diagnosis of the condition in the autumn of 2021.
The singer who has sold many platinum records has been undergoing chemotherapy and radiation therapy as well as surgery for the last half year in order to treat his cancer.
On social media, the country singer, who is 60 years old, revealed that he was diagnosed with stomach cancer last autumn. “I’ve been through chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery for the last half a year.
So far, so good. I need some breathing room as well as time to rest and unwind.”
His concert was supposed to take place on Friday at the barbecue festival, but it was postponed because the website for the Ribfest states that the event is “currently finding a replacement for Toby Keith to join Elle King on Friday, June 17.”
In addition, the artist said that he is “looking forward to spending this time with my family, but I won’t keep you waiting too long to see me again, admirers. I literally cannot wait.”
Many of Keith’s contemporaries in the country music industry sent their best wishes and prayers his way.
In an email sent late on Sunday night, Keith’s publicist Elaine Schock said that certain tour dates may be canceled, but that she was unsure of the exact number at this time.
