Toby Keith Mourns the Unexpected Loss of a Friend and Bandmate


It brings us great sadness to share that Toby Keith‘s longtime bass player and good friend, Carl “Chuck” Goff, Jr. The fifty-four year old passed away in Oklahoma on Wednesday, February 27th, after a motor vehicle accident.

Toby spoke out on his website regarding his friend: ¬†“We are deeply saddened by the sudden death of our band member, Chuck Goff. He was a close friend for over 25 years, the band leader and bass player. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family.”

Chuck Goff also lent a hand in writing some of Toby’s big hits, including “You Ain’t Much Fun” and “Upstairs Downtown” from the 1994 album “Boomtown”.

We extend our deepest condolences to Chuck Goff’s friends, family, and bandmates during this time. May his legacy live on through the relationships he built, the career he enjoyed, and the music he made.
