Toby Keith Tribute at the CMT Music Awards Leaves His Family in Tears

Toby Keith's children were emotional at the 2024 CMT Music Awards as country and rock legends honored their late father. Despite their efforts, tears flowed as Roger Clemens led the crowd in a tribute. Brooks & Dunn, Sammy Hagar, and Lainey Wilson performed, with Clemens, Lucas Nelson, and Riley Green also sharing memories of Keith, who passed away from cancer. The tribute was lively and heartfelt, with Clemens even wearing a hat with Toby's name. The performance included a mix of Keith's hit songs and anecdotes, making it a celebration of his life rather than a somber farewell. The emotional highlight came when Clemens thanked Keith's wife Tricia, bringing tears to everyone.
