“I’m thinking about getting back in fighting shape. I need a little bit of time to just rest up and heal up,” the “Red Solo Cup” singer said.
“It’s pretty debilitating to have to go through all that, but as long as everything stays hunky-dory, then we’ll look at something good in the future,” he added.
Keith initially told fans about his cancer diagnosis in a message on social media in June. “Last fall I was diagnosed with stomach cancer,” the singer tweeted at the time. “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,” he added.
Keith received a BMI Icon Award at the BMI Country Awards in Nashville last month. According to the Taste of Country website, the artist performed at the ceremony and made a 12-minute acceptance speech.
