Toby Keith, the singer-songwriter behind the 1993 country hit “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” one of his 20 No. 1 singles and the most-played country song of the 1990s, died Monday at 62.

Keith, who was battling stomach cancer, died “peacefully” on Monday surrounded by his family, according to a statement posted on the country singer’s website. “He fought his fight with grace and courage,” the statement said. He was diagnosed in 2021.

Keith revealed his diagnosis in a June 2022 Instagram post, noting he “spent the last 6 months receiving chemo, radiation and surgery.”

“So far, so good,” he wrote at the time. “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.”
