Country music star Toby Keith told us he has colon cancer

Toby Keith, a seven-time Grammy nominee who was recognized as entertainer 

of the year by the Academy of Country Music two years in a row in 2002 and 2003, revealed Sunday he has stomach cancer. 

The 60-year-old Keith posted to social media on his condition. 

“Last fall I was diagnosed with stomach cancer,” he wrote on Instagram. “I’ve 

spent the last 6 months receiving chemo, radiation and surgery. So far, so good. 

I need time to breathe, recover and relax. I am looking forward to spending this 

time with my family. But I will see the fans sooner than later. I can’t wait.” 

Keith’s publicist, Elaine Schock, said he will not be performing at scheduled gigs “for now.” His latest tour was scheduled to start this Friday. 

His most recent album, “Peso in My Pocket,” spawned the top 25 country single, “Old School.”
