Despite battling stomach cancer since the fall of 2021, Keith performed up until less than two months prior to his death.

He was determined to return to the stage after going through numerous rounds of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgeries. He did so a few times before he passed away, with his first being a surprise two-and-a-half hour performance at Hollywood Corners, his venue in Norman, Oklahoma on June 30, 2023.

Keith’s first televised performance since his diagnosis took place in September 2023 when he was being honored with the first-ever Country Icon Award at the inaugural People’s Choice Country Awards.

He was honored with a rockin’ performance by Blake Shelton and a well-deserved speech from his friend. He then took the stage and performed his poignant song “Don’t Let The Old Man In,” a song he wrote for the Clint Eastwood film The Mule.

Toby Keith’s final social media post came the day before he passed away.

On February 4, 2024, Keith took to Instagram and TikTok and posted a video of him at one of his Vegas concerts holding his guitar up in the air, signifying the end of the show.

Little did we know, he was signifying the end of the road, as well. Some think it was him saying goodbye. 

His caption read, “And that’s a wrap on the weekend, y’all. Back to it.”

At first, all the comments were in support of him and commenting back about the weekend. Now, it is flooded with condolences and well wishes to his family.

The TikTok video has been viewed 1.8 million times with over 3,500 comments as of press time, and over 82,900 likes with 1,300 comments on Instagram.
