KHAZ Country Music News: Toby Keith Was Reluctant to Appear on “Forbes” Magazine Cover
Toby Keith only agreed to appear on the cover of Forbes magazine as “Country’s $500 Million Man” and talk about his finances because his publicist convinced him to do it. In an interview with The Oklahoman, Toby admitted he’s totally uncomfortable talking about his income, which totaled about $65 million last year alone. In fact, he hasn’t even read the Forbes article yet.
“I’m just a boy from Oklahoma that still drives a pickup truck,” Toby says. “I got some hot rod cars in my barn and in garage ’cause I can — cars I grew up loving — but I’m a pickup guy.”
A big chunk of Toby’s fortune comes from his live shows. He’ll rake in some more cash for his show in Minot, ND Friday night.
