Toby Keith was remembered as an ‘incredible talent’ and ‘fun guy’

Tributes are pouring in for Country singer Toby Keith, who died Monday at 62 after a battle with stomach cancer.

Keith was surrounded by family when he “passed away peacefully,” according to a statement posted to his website and social media accounts.

“He fought his fight with grace and courage,” it said. “Please respect the privacy of his family at this time.”

The Oklahoma artist, who sold more than 40 million albums throughout his career, had 20 number-one singles, including “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” “Courtesy of the Red, White & Blue (The Angry American),” “Beer for my Horses” and “As Good as I Once Was.”

An outspoken and sometimes controversial advocate for American military service members, Keith went on 11 USO tours to perform for U.S. troops serving overseas. He also helped to raise millions for charity over his career, including building a home in Oklahoma City for kids and their families who are battling cancer. He wrote about his support for the men and women in America’s military with his 2003 hit, “American Soldier.”

Heartbroken fans and friends offered their condolences to the family and shared their love for Keith’s music on social media.
