Toby Keith recently added to his growing mantel of awards with his induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame at the 46th Annual Induction and Awards event in New York City. Toby received the honor for his continued songwriting success, beginning with his debut hit “Should’ve Been a Cowboy” in 1993.
“This is my favorite accomplishment,” Toby said. “Songwriting is what I started out doing before I ever even went to Nashville. I’ve got a warehouse full of awards and plaques, but this one’s the king daddy.”
Toby has also been honored by the Nashville Songwriters Association International with its Songwriter/Artist of the Decade award. He has also been named BMI Country Songwriter/Artist of the Year three times.
Our congratulations go out to Toby on his induction to the Songwriters Hall of Fame. The Oklahoma native’s current single, “35 MPH Town,” is out now and you can catch him all summer on the Good Times & Pick Up Lines Tour, presented by Ford F-Series.
