Toby Keith hasn’t been on a stage since he made the announcement of his cancer diagnosis. So, seeing this news is a great sign that he’s getting better. Hopefully. Toby was in Lexington, KY for the 2022 Breeder’s Cup, an annual two-day event at the city’s Keeneland Racetrack.
Toby Keith performed his 2003 hit “I Love This Bar,” according to video footage captured from the audience during his surprise performance. He appeared to be performing with the house band and he was joined onstage by the proprietor Jeff Ruby himself, according to a tweet from radio station K 92.9 WVLK FM.
It was Keith’s first public performance since June. He’s been in treatment for around a year fighting stomach cancer. When he shared the news with his fans, he explained that he received his diagnosis in late 2021. Cancer is a nasty bitch and doesn’t care who it hurts. I pray for anyone fighting that good fight…every day.
Toby posted this message back in June saying, “I’ve spent the last 6 months receiving chemo, radiation and surgery. So far, so good,” Keith said at the time. “I need time to breathe, recover and relax”
Cancer is a nasty bitch and doesn’t care who it hurts. I pray for anyone fighting that good fight…every day.
