Posted November 3, 2023 by: Admin
A remarkable moment unfolded at Oklahoma City’s Paycom Center on Friday night when Jason Aldean extended a warm invitation to fellow Oklahoma native Toby Keith to join him on stage. Keith, an acclaimed country artist, took the stage alongside Jason Aldean and treated the ecstatic crowd to his 1993 hit, “Should’ve Been A Cowboy.”
The unexpected performance left fans in awe, welcoming Toby with resounding applause, and singing along enthusiastically to every word of his iconic song.
“There’s only one guy you think of when you come to Oklahoma City,” Jason exclaimed, introducing Toby to the excited crowd. “So make some noise for… Toby Keith!”
After the thunderous applause subsided, Toby Keith playfully interacted with the audience, humorously mentioning his “rehab tour” and sharing, “If I ain’t at my bar, I’m down at Hollywood Corners or I’m on stage with Jason Aldean. But the Almighty’s been riding shotgun, and my a** is getting ready to go back to work.”
Keith then signaled the band to kick off “Should’ve Been A Cowboy,” delivering a robust and resonant performance that showcased his enduring talent.
Toby Keith’s appearance at Jason Aldean’s concert marked his first public performance since his memorable rendition at the People’s Choice Country Awards on September 28.
Toby Keith had graced the People’s Choice Country Awards in Nashville the previous month, where he was honored with the inaugural Country Icon Award. Following the trophy presentation by Blake Shelton, Toby picked up his guitar and delivered a poignant rendition of his heartfelt ballad, “Don’t Let The Old Man In.”
This moment was particularly significant as the 62-year-old legend had been battling stomach cancer since the fall of 2021. His performance at the PCCA marked his first televised appearance since his diagnosis.
Toby Keith shared with the press before the night’s show that he was feeling good, despite the ups and downs of his cancer battle, describing it as “a little bit of a roller coaster.”
