Willie Nelson, Carrie Underwood + More Congratulate Toby Keith on Songwriters Hall of Fame Induction [Watch]
Keith was inducted by Stephen Colbert in New York City Thursday night (June 18), with Colbert even singing "Good As I Once Was" during the ceremony. But he's far from the only famous face lauding Keith's accomplishment; Willie Nelson, Carrie Underwood, Jason Aldean, Keith Urban, Brantley Gilbert and more recorded video messages for the superstar that have been posted to his Instagram.
Nelson recorded his message during a poker game. "Thinking about you, wanted to welcome you to the Songwriters Hall of Fame," the country icon says. "You deserve to be there."
"I've been a fan of yours for a long time," Aldean notes. "All the way back to when I was playing 'Should've Been a Cowboy' in the clubs. Anyway, man, I just wanna say congrats, I'm happy for you, and it's well-deserved."
Underwood notes their shared roots in Oklahoma in her message. "From one Okie to another, I just wanted to say huge congratulations on being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. That is a big deal, and you certainly deserve it."
Urban took a quick minute right before going onstage to record his well wishes. "I'm about to play a gig, but I just wanna quickly say congratulations to you, brother, on being inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, an amazing feat. Unbelievably deserved, though, I've gotta say. You've always been one of my favorite country songwriters, period."
