Toby Keith - Toby Keith Battling Laryngitis
Country star Toby Keith is recovering at home after falling ill with a bout of laryngitis.
The singer was due to appear at the Big Valley Jamboree country music festival in Canada on Saturday (30Jul11) but pulled out of the event after being diagnosed with the throat illness.
Fellow country musician Ronnie Dunn came to Keith's rescue by playing on for a little longer at the event.
In a post on his Facebook.com page, Keith explains, "A severe case of Laryngitis and doctor's advice forced me to cancel my show at Big Valley Jamboree. Hate that I had to do that. Thanks to Ronnie Dunn for extending his set and thanks for all of your get well messages."
