A great man and real American patriot has been laid to rest.
Country artist Toby Keith died on Monday. He was 62 years old and had been sick with stomach cancer for a long time.
A few days before he died, Toby was in a video where he talked about a very important song. It’s hard to believe it happened…
All of the treatments are over, and so is the pain and trouble.
We were all moved by Toby Keith’s famous songs. He died peacefully on February 5 with his family by his side. The singer from Oklahoma, who went by the name “Big Dog Daddy,” came to Nashville with some of the best music the city had heard in a long time.
In the 1990s, he ruled country radio with his all-American, blue-collar style.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that Toby Keith is one of the best country artists ever. His first song, “Should’ve Been A Cowboy,” will always be remembered. Toby’s music will live on forever since more than 40 million records have been sold and more than 10 billion streams have been made.
The 62-year-old singer was cocky and never gave in or slowed down for anyone. However, when he was told he had stomach cancer in 2021, we could tell he looked different because he became much thinner.
A lot of us felt sorry for him as we watched him fight the awful cancer.
He had surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, but it didn’t help.
During this tough time, Toby always made sure to let his friends know how he was doing. When he talked to the NBC station KUSA last month, the singer talked about his health again.
“It’s a lot of dark hallways,” Keith said.
“Cancer is a roller coaster, so it’s like, you just sit here and wait on it to go away, and it may not ever go away,” Keith added. “If it goes into remission, it will still be in the back of your mind.”
Toby, on the other hand, was a strong Christian who spoke out about his faith.
“You take it for granted on the days that things are good, and you lean on it when days are bad,” Keith said. “It has taught me to lean on a little more every day.”
He thought about one of his first songs just a few days before he died. Now that I think about it, it’s very moving to see Toby, who is having a hard time, talking about how his career began. He talks about how he wrote a song about heartbreak when he was 14 in the video.
”The first song I ever wrote, I was 14 or 15 years old, it was called ‘If You Had an Out of Heartache’ – it wasn’t bad, it was structured right, but it weren’t very good either,” he said and continued:
“But the people round here, when I played it, they were like, ‘Wow, that’s a great song.’
”It’s just a song, that was 5,000 songs ago.”
Toby’s last Instagram post, which he made the day before he died, was a picture of one of his last shows in Las Vegas last year. Fans who went to the sold-out show had no idea at the time that it would be Keith’s last gig ever.
Along with the haunting words “And that’s a wrap on the weekend, y’all,” the country star wrote on Instagram. “Back to it.”Copy
At that very moment, we had no idea that the terrible news of Toby’s death would be shown the next day. Still, as soon as the news came out, his fans rushed to the comments to say their last nice things about the country singer.
“It’s sad that it was his last show and nobody knew,” someone wrote. Another added: “The people watching this had no idea how lucky they were to be there,” and a further comment read: “RIP Toby. You gave it your all until the very end.”
One person also commented: “Couldn’t imagine being in that crowd and waking up the next day realizing you just saw him for the last time…devastating.”
Another wrote: “The people watching this had no idea how lucky they were to be there….”
Another added: “RIP, what a sad thing to wake up to. Prayers lifted to his family. Toby was a true patriot, you will be missed but your music will continue.”
Toby’s wife Tricia Lucus, whom he married in 1984, and their three children survive him. Son Stelen is 27 years old and daughter Shelley is 44.
We lost Jimmy Buffett first, and now we lose Toby. These are two of my favorite people. They are going to play music and hang out together again now.
