Toby Keith, the country music artist, has revealed he has been suffering from stomach cancer since late last year but has been in therapy and will soon be back on stage. Keith has been posting about his cancerous illness on his official Instagram and Twitter accounts, saying he was diagnosed with stomach cancer last fall.

In his post, he shared his thoughts on his cancer journey, which he has been on for six months. He informed his followers that he was undergoing cancer treatment, including chemotherapy, surgery and radiation. In his statement, he also claimed that he is now resting and recovering from his illness and spending time with his family. However, he will meet his admirers very soon.

About Keith and his music career

Keith, originally from Oklahoma, worked in the oil industry and played on USFL football teams before pursuing a career as a music artist. In 1993, he released his self-titled debut album on Mercury, which became a hit after selling over a million copies.

Keith is best known for his conservative politics. His most famous songs are 2002’s “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue (The Angry American)”, partly inspired by the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Keith’s music has been very successful and is known among the top country singles. “Peso in My Pocket,” which is his latest album, featured the country top 25 single “Old School.”

Last November, Keith was honored in the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame. He recently performed at the Heroes Honor Festival at Daytona International Speedway.

Keith’s next performance might not happen

Keith’s spokeswoman Elaine Schock said he won’t be performing at any of his scheduled shows for a while due to his cancer diagnosis. His last tour was due to start on Friday. Keith was due to begin a multi-city tour to promote his new album, “Peso in My Pocket”, with the premiere date set for June 17. There has been no official announcement on whether to continue, postpone or cancel the concert, but her July 28 show at the Ohio State Fair has been canceled.

Keith also has a record of helping children living with cancer. According to the Toby Keith Foundation website, he founded the organization in 2006 to help children with cancer.
