Toby Keith adored his life and favorite pub. He was a country singer who died on February 5th, aged 62, nearly three years after being diagnosed with stomach cancer. He frequently discussed his battle with illness, his love for his wife and children, and his enthusiasm for music.
Toby was born in Clinton, Oklahoma, on July 8, 1961. He fell in love with music when he was eight years old, after his grandmother handed him a guitar. He began composing songs as a teenager and performed in local taverns with his band Easy Money after graduating from high school.
Toby shifted his concentration from oil fields to music after a period of time. His debut album, released in 1993, was a huge hit, particularly the song “Should’ve Been a Cowboy.
He met his wife, Tricia, when he was twenty. They got married in 1984 and have three children together. Toby’s career took off with singles like “How Do You Like Me Now?!”, “Beer for My Horses,” and “I Love This Bar.”
Even though he did not win a Grammy, he received several other accolades. Toby also launched his own record company and managed other country performers.
Toby’s children grew up knowing how renowned he was, but they were not very interested in the music business. He has tried acting, appearing in films such as “Broken Bridges.”
Aside from music and film, Toby founded his own clothing brand and a restaurant franchise called “I Love This Bar and Grill.” He also helped to establish Ally’s House, a charity for children with cancer.
Toby was very interested in many things, including rearing racehorses and collecting vehicles and motorbikes. He didn’t want people to assume he had a political agenda, despite supporting several administrations.
Toby disclosed in 2022 that he had stomach cancer. He had treatments and surgeries yet continued to perform at events. He won an award in 2023 and performed in Las Vegas.
On February 5, 2024, Toby Keith died at the age of 62. He was surrounded by his family and battled cancer valiantly.
