Toby also brought the audience at the Grand Ole Opry to tears with his performance of “Don’t Let The Old Man In,” his 2019 song about coming to terms with growing old.
It was his first televised performance since his cancer diagnosis, and I think I speak for everybody when I say it’s great to see Toby back on stage and performing again.
God bless Toby Keith. An icon indeed.
Toby Keith Announces New Album
Above all else, Toby Keith values his title as “songwriter” the most.
And in an effort to honor some of his most beloved self-written tunes, Toby will release a new album called 100% Songwriter next month, which will be a collection of his most iconic solo-written songs in one package.
His career really started in the early 90’s when he penned his hit “Should’ve Been A Cowboy” in a motel bathroom in Dodge City, Kansas, and of course, he’s since gone on to collect 32 #1 hits, sold more than 40 million albums and be inducted into the all-genre Songwriters Hall of Fame.
100% Songwriter includes songs from his 1993 self-titled debut album all the way through 2006’s White Trash With Money, and of course, every song featured was written solely by Keith himself.
In addition, the music video for “Who’s Your Daddy?”, which is featured on the album, has been released today with remastered HD.
Of course, Keith has also been in the midst of battling stomach cancer for more than a year, but has been getting back into music more recently and playing shows here and there as he continues to get his strength back, which is great to see.
100% Songwriter is due out everywhere on November 3rd, and you can check out the full tracklist below.
