Country music star Toby Keith, best known for his hits ‘Red Solo Cup’ and ‘Beer For My Horses’, has died at the age of 62.
The singer passed away surrounded by family, who released a statement saying: “He fought his fight with grace and courage. Please respect the privacy of his family at this time.”
In 2021, Keith became a member of the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame and was awarded the National Medal of Arts in the same year. Keith started his country music career busking on the streets of Nashville before signing with Mercury Records. After his debut single, ‘Should’ve Been A Cowboy’ went to number one in 1993, Keith remained a relevant and au courant country music artist, addressing everything from political issues to drinking after a long days work.
Our thoughts are with the Keith family at this time.
