Toby Keith along with BMLG Records shared his latest single “Don’t Let The Old Man In,”to country radio on Oct. 30. Keith originally performed the ballad on the People’s Choice Country Awards while being honored with the Country Icon award. Since then, the song has jumped to No. 1 on Billboard‘s Country Digital Song Sales chart, landed among the top three on the all-genre chart, and hit the top spot on the iTunes Country Songs and Videos charts.
Written in 2018 by Keith, “Don’t Let The Old Man In” has taken on a deeper meaning since Keith has opened up about his battle with cancer. Keith said he performed the song on the awards show “because I’ve been going through my cancer fight for the last couple of years and it’s really inspiring for a lot of people. And coming back on TV for the first time and performing live in front of a live audience, I thought it was fitting.”
