Keith's family officially announced his passing on social media, requesting privacy as they navigate through this challenging period.

‘Toby Keith passed peacefully last night on February 5th, surrounded by his family. He fought his fight with grace and courage. Please respect the privacy of his family at this time,’ they wrote.

In 2021, Keith was diagnosed with stomach cancer, which he publicly disclosed in 2022. Subsequently, he opted to pause his music and touring endeavours, yet remained actively involved in advocating for his children's cancer charity, the Toby Keith Foundation.

About Toby Keith’s career

Keith enjoyed a thriving career spanning three decades, selling over 40 million albums and delivering numerous chart-topping hits including ‘Should've Been a Cowboy,’ ‘How Do You Like Me Now?!’, ‘Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue (The Angry American),’ and ‘I Love This Bar.’

Toby Keith garnered numerous accolades for his music, notably receiving the National Medal of Arts from President Donald Trump in 2021. Additionally, he was honored at the People's Choice Country Awards in September 2023.

In December 2023, Keith staged a remarkable comeback with a string of sold-out performances in Las Vegas, which he hailed as ‘triumphant.’

Keith leaves behind his wife, Tricia Lucus, along with his three children—daughters Shelley Covel Rowland and Krystal Keith, and son Stelen Keith—and four grandchildren.
