Our country music family was saddened to hear the news that Carl Reber “Chuck” Goff Jr., the bass player for Toby Keith, was killed in a two-car wreck Wednesday night, February 27.  Chuck was 54 years old and a resident of Noble, OK.

The crash occurred in Cleveland County, just south of Oklahoma City.  The other driver in the accident was not injured and the Cleveland County Sheriff’s Department is conducting an investigation.

In addition to serving as Toby’s bass player and band leader, Chuck also co-wrote Toby’s hits “Upstairs Downtown” and “You Ain’ Much Fun.”  Goff also had his own signature bass through Dean Guitars.

“We are deeply saddened by the sudden death of our band member, Chuck Goff,” Toby said in a statement released on his website.

“He was a close friend for over 25 years, the band leader and bass player. Our hearts and prayers go out to his family.”

GAC extends our condolences to Chuck Goff’s family, friends and to Toby Keith and all the members of his organization.
