The 61-year-old singer said, “I’m happy to collect the SabesWings lifetime achievement award. I’m sorry; I’ve had a difficult year fighting cancer myself and was unable to make it to the event.
Keith continued by thanking “all the folks at SabesWings” and discussing the award in more detail.
According to him, “Bret and Kandace select individuals for this distinction based on three criteria: service to a group of people in need, making a difference in the lives of others, and the common thread of working cooperatively with other organisations having a goal and passion.”

“My nonprofit, the Toby Keith Foundation, created the OK Kids Korral in Oklahoma City.” He said, “For children with cancer and their families who stay across the street from the Children’s Hospital, we provide lodging, food, and transportation to and from the hospital.
“We established the foundation to lessen that burden. It truly is a dream come true.
