How Blake Shelton Is Using His Voice To Sweetly Support Toby Keith After Cancer Diagnosis

Blake Shelton has developed a reputation for himself over the past decade or so of being a bit of an impish troublemaker. Whether he’s acting like a horror movie villain to psyche out new Voice coach Camila Cabello or playfully ripping on his “rivals” Kelly Clarkson and Adam Levine, the singer often portrays himself as just a silly, fun-loving country boy (or some might even say the “new Nickelback”). Shelton does seem to know when it’s time to step up and get serious, however, and did just that recently in support of fellow country singer Toby Keith, after Keith revealed he’d been undergoing treatment for stomach cancer.

Blake Shelton has stepped in to replace the “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” singer as headliner of the Veteran’s Day concert “A Salute to Our Heroes,” Music Mayhem Magazine reports, after Toby Keith was forced to pull out of the event in order to recover and spend time with his family. He said on Instagram, without delving into concert details:

Last fall I was diagnosed with stomach cancer. I’ve spent the last 6 months receiving chemo, radiation and surgery. So far, so good. I need time to breathe, recover and relax. I am looking forward to spending this time with my family. But I will see the fans sooner than later. I can’t wait. -T
