Toby Keith, a country music legend who has been fighting stomach cancer, had a triumphant night at the People’s Choice Country Awards, where he was honored with the first-ever Country Icon Award and had his first live performance since his diagnosis.

After undergoing chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery for a year, the world learned about Keith’s stomach cancer diagnosis in June 2022. He gave an update on his condition while walking the red carpet at the awards show, stating, “I feel fairly good. Somewhat of a roller coaster ride…My mood is great today.

 

 

Blake Shelton presented Keith with the award and performed one of Keith’s popular songs, ‘Who’s Your Daddy?’ During his acceptance speech, Keith expressed gratitude to his family, team, colleagues, and fans, thanking the almighty for his journey. Keith’s performance of ‘Don’t Let the Old Man In,’ a song reflecting on aging and resilience, was emotional, with his wife, Tricia Lucus, visibly moved in the audience. He explained his song choice, saying it was fitting given his battle with cancer and his return to performing live.

Keith’s newest health update included the encouraging news that his tumor had decreased by a third (33%), and that his blood tests showed improvement in his fight against cancer.
