Toby left behind his wife of nearly 40 years, Tricia Covel, their three children, Shelley, Krystal, and Stelen, and several grandchildren.
Toby just did a sit down interview, where he revealed he was still undergoing cancer treatment.
He was first diagnosed with stomach cancer in the fall of 2021, but didn’t reveal it to his fans until June 2022. While battling in private, he underwent surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation.
Less than two weeks ago, Toby Keith sat down for a two-part interview with News 9 in his home in Oklahoma.
“This ailment…is devastating. You take it one day at a time. It’s a rollercoaster.”
