Before introducing Keith, Aldean acknowledged the significance of having him join the show in Oklahoma City, declaring, “There’s only one guy you think of when you come to Oklahoma City.” The audience’s enthusiasm reached a fever pitch as Toby Keith stepped into the spotlight, greeted by thunderous applause and a sea of fans singing along to every word of his classic song.


In typical Toby Keith fashion, he lightened the mood with a humorous remark, jokingly referring to himself as being on a “rehab tour” and expressing gratitude for the opportunity to share the stage with Jason Aldean. With the band kicking off the familiar chords of “Should’ve Been A Cowboy,” Keith delivered a powerhouse performance, showcasing his enduring talent and unmistakable sound.

This appearance marked Toby Keith’s first public performance since his heartfelt rendition of “Don’t Let The Old Man In” at the People’s Choice Country Awards in Nashville the previous month. Honored with the inaugural Country Icon Award, Keith’s performance resonated deeply with fans, particularly given his ongoing battle with stomach cancer since 2021.

Reflecting on his health journey, Keith acknowledged the ups and downs of his cancer fight, describing it as a “roller coaster” but expressing gratitude for feeling good on that particular day. Despite the challenges, Toby Keith’s resilience and unwavering spirit continue to inspire fans and fellow artists alike, reaffirming his status as a beloved icon in the country music world.
