February 6th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

Toby Keith, the country star who dominated the charts in the 1990s and 2000s with a string of hits including "Beer for My Horses" and "Made in America," died on Monday. He was 62.  He "passed peacefully" on Monday night, a statement posted on his official X account said Tuesday.  The "Red Solo Cup" singer announced in June 2022 that he'd been diagnosed with stomach cancer and was "receiving chemo, radiation and surgery."  "He fought his fight with grace and courage," Tuesday's statement said. "Please respect the privacy of his family at this time."

ABC News confirmed the news of his death with a representative.
