Country Singer Toby Keith Dies From Cancer at 62

My favorite Toby Keith song is American Soldier. It means a lot to me as someone who lived the experiences described in the song. He was a good guy and a true patriot. Gone too soon. RIP Toby.

Country music legend Toby Keith has died at 62 after a battle with stomach cancer.

The “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” singer died Monday night, according to an official statement shared on social media.

“Toby Keith passed peacefully last night on February 5th, surrounded by his family,” the post reads. “He fought his fight with grace and courage. Please respect the privacy of his family at this time.”

Just two weeks ago, the “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American)” hitmaker opened up about his cancer battle, revealing he was diagnosed in 2021.

“I was going through all the chemo, radiation, surgery, and I got to the point where I was comfortable with whatever happened. I had my brain wrapped around it, and I was in a good spot either way,” he told Oklahoma’s News 9.

The crooner praised his wife, Tricia Lucus, for being “the best nurse” as he underwent treatment.

“Oh, she’s been a trouper. She’s the best nurse. The first time we went to Houston, to the hospital, she stepped right in and she just took control and said, ‘We got this. Let’s go.’ So she’s like, ‘We’re going to get this and don’t worry about it,’” he told his hometown outlet.

……During his glittering career, which spanned three decades, Keith sold over 40 million records thanks to patriotic hits like “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” “Made in America” and “Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American).”
