Toby Keith’s 1993 debut single, “Should’ve Been a Cowboy,” helped ignite a career that has seen the Oklahoma native win multiple CMA Awards and ACM Awards, earn 20 No. 1 singles and sell more than 40 million albums worldwide.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Toby’s breakthrough song and self-titled debut album—which also included Top 5 hits “He Ain’t Worth Missing,” “A Little Less Talk and a Lot More Action” and “Wish I Didn’t Know Now”—Toby’s family, friends and industry insiders gathered at Nashville’s BMI headquarters on Dec. 5 to present Toby with a special citation of achievement.

NFL Hall of Fame member Terry Bradshaw, producer/executive Harold Shedd, and Toby’s daughters Shelley and Krystal and wife Trisha were on hand for the celebration that recognized Toby for more than 7 million broadcast performances of “Should’ve Been a Cowboy.”
