A noticeably thinner Toby Keith says his faith is carrying him during his stomach cancer battle.
Keith spoke Thursday before the first People’s Choice Country Awards in Nashville. He said he’s “doing all right” and said, “I lean on my faith and I just pray and lean into it. It was my rock.”
Although he said he was feeling good at the event, he acknowledged the struggle is “a roller coaster.”
“You get good days and, you know, you’re up and down… It’s always zero to 60 and 60 to zero, but I feel good today,” he said.
The 62-year-old country singer won the Country Icon Award during the ceremony.
Keith announced his illness last June. He had already spent six months undergoing chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery.
The Associated Press reported that Keith told The Oklahoman in June that his tumor had shrunk by a third and blood test results were looking good.
