Toby Keith To Be Inducted Country Music Hall of Fame After Death

Toby Keith To Be Inducted Country Music Hall of Fame After Death

Country music star Toby Keith who recently died after battling stomach cancer would be inducted into the Country Music Hall Of Fame. 

In a ceremony announcing the inductees on Monday, Country Music Association CEO Sarah Trahern said results came in that Keith had been elected in the Modern Era category just hours after the world learned of his passing.

“We woke up that morning to the heartbreaking news that our friend Toby Keith had lost his long battle with stomach cancer,” Trahern said.

“My heart sank,” she said, “knowing that we missed the chance to inform Toby while he was still with us. But I have no doubt that he is smiling down on us, knowing that he’ll always be, — quote —  ‘as good as he once was.’”

The other inductees announced Monday were singer John Anderson and guitarist James Burton.

Keith died on Feb. 5 at the age of 62. He had been diagnosed with stomach cancer in the fall of 2021 and shared the news publicly in June 2022.

Toby would still be inducted because he was selected before he died. 

Keith has produced 32 No. 1-ranked songs, and 42 songs that have appeared in the Top 10 of Billboard’s country music chart.
