Country music superstar Toby Keith is making a comeback after battling stomach cancer.

He shared his health struggles and the challenge of returning to the stage on the Bobby Bones Show.

Keith expressed concerns about remembering lyrics after a three-year hiatus but found that a teleprompter wasn’t necessary for his performances. (Trending: Trump Defies Court And Delivers Closing Argument At Civil Fraud Trial)

His main obstacle is rebuilding his stomach muscles to sing his hits powerfully.

Despite this, he’s optimistic about his progress.

“I haven’t worked a handful of shows in the last three years, but I worked every year for 27-28 years,” Keith said.

“The only thing I had that concerned me was being away from it for three years and remembering all the words. They subconsciously come to you when you’re working, you don’t even think about it. You know them. Getting completely away from them and having to start back.”

“The thing I had to overcome—the surgery I had on my stomach they had to stitch on my diaphragm. Not using it to sing every night, that is a muscle. So I had to really work that to get it where I sing really really hard and really really violent and loud, I didn’t have that last 10 percent on the bottom where I could just belt anything.”

“Like when I sang ‘McArthur Park’ at Carnegie Hall, it’s like opera stuff. So, I don’t know if I could do that, but what I do on stage is no problem.”

“I’ve had to work on that diaphragm, and it’s getting better all the time,” he said.

Keith’s impact on country music, particularly after 9/11, was notable, especially with his hit “Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue.”
