Country icon Toby Keith took a long hiatus from the road and performing following his stomach cancer diagnosis. After everything he has been through, he recently praised his wife and the way she has been there for him through it all. So, what did he have to say?

Country Legend Sidelined By Stomach Cancer

When it comes to country music legends, Toby Keith has spent the last few decades earning that title. Whether through recording albums or relentlessly hitting the road, Keith is one of the hardest-working and most recognized faces in country music today.

Because of this, it came as an even bigger shock to his fans when Toby Keith shared his stomach cancer diagnosis. Keith was diagnosed with stomach cancer in the fall of 2021. As a veteran road warrior, Toby Keith was forced to put touring on hold to tend to his health. As Keith has revealed, that alone has been a major adjustment for him.

Country Singer Returned To The Stage, But Not Out Of The Woods Yet

Following surgery and time to rest and recover, Keith was finally able to return to the stage not too long ago. He played a series of shows in Las Vegas. Even though this was an extremely light undertaking compared to the amount of touring he is used to, many fans would agree that it was a great thing to see him get back to doing what he loves.

Even so, unfortunately, Toby Keith isn’t entirely in the clear just yet. He is still in treatment. As such, he has undergone everything from surgery to chemotherapy and radiation. The singer has described this chapter of his life as a roller coaster, and rightfully so.
