 Toby Keith’s Health Update: A Positive Trend Amidst Battle with Stomach Cancer


Country music icon Toby Keith, who has been battling stomach cancer since 2021, recently provided an update on his health. The 61-year-old star, known for hits like “Red Solo Cup,” revealed that the tumor in his stomach has shrunk by a third and his blood tests look good.

Keith was diagnosed with stomach cancer in the fall of 2021. He spent the following six months undergoing treatment, including chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery. Despite the challenges of his condition, Keith has maintained a positive outlook. “I’m feeling pretty good … I’m about another eight weeks from my last scan. So I expect next time I look for that tumor to be even less — and I’ve only got one that’s shown up,” he said.

The singer also expressed his desire to return to the stage. “I’ve got more wind, and I’m thinking about bringing the band in and setting up, playing two or three days somewhere just to see if I can get through two hours,” he said. He added that he is ready to go back to work once he gets a little break from his chemotherapy treatments.

Keith’s health update comes after he received the Country Music Icon Award at the People’s Choice Country Awards 2023. He performed “Don’t Let the Old Man In” at the awards ceremony, marking one of his first public appearances since his diagnosis.

While Keith’s journey has been challenging, his recent health updates have been encouraging. As he continues his battle with stomach cancer, fans around the world are rooting for him and looking forward to seeing him back on stage.

Please note that while Keith’s updates are positive, stomach cancer can be unpredictable. It is curable if detected in its early stages but can only be treated in its later stages. We wish Toby Keith all the best in his ongoing battle with this disease.

When DreamWorks closed in 2005, Keith founded the label Show Dog Nashville, which merged with Universal South Records to become Show Dog-Universal Music in December 2009. He has released ten studio albums through Show Dog/Show Dog-Universal: 2006’s White Trash with Money, 2007’s Big Dog Daddy, 2008’s That Don’t Make Me a Bad Guy, 2009’s , 2010’s Bullets in the Gun, 2011’s Clancy’s Tavern, 2012’s Hope on the Rocks, 2013’s Drinks After Work, 2015’s 35 MPH Town, 2017’s The Bus Songs, and 2021’s Peso in My Pocket.
