Country singer Toby Keith diagnosed with stomach 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.
