Country singer Toby Keith provided an update on his battle with stomach cancer, expressing that he feels like he’s “turning a corner” after two tough years.

He recently returned to touring with sold-out shows in Las Vegas and discussed the inspiration behind his song “Don’t Let The Old Man In,” which was influenced by his experience with 93-year-old Clint Eastwood.

“I’m doing really good,” Keith said. (Trending: Epstein’s Brother Finally Breaks His Silence)

“It’s been a tough two years, but I think I’m turning a corner. I don’t know if you’re ever done with it [cancer], but I’m trying to be.”

“And this is my 30th year in the [country music] business, so it was really weird just sitting here with your handcuffs on,” he said.

“I’m Clint Eastwood’s partner at his gold tournament — he’s 93 this year, by the way,” Keith said.

“Several years ago the first event I played with him… I [asked], ‘What keeps you going at your age?’ He said, ‘I try to get up every day and be productive — not let that old man in.’”

“So I came home and said, ‘I’m going to write him a song,’” Keith said.

“I didn’t know I was going to have to live those words in a few years.”

Despite the ups and downs of his health journey, Keith mentioned feeling good and expressed his determination to stay productive and positive.

“I feel pretty good,” Keith said.

“It’s a little bit of a roller coaster. You get good days and, you know, you’re up and down, up and down. It’s always zero to 60 and 60 to zero, but I feel good today.”
