Krystal Keith definitely had a unique childhood experience. After all, her dad is one of the most recognizable names in country, Toby Keith.

Turns out, however, that the superstar is “a lot more normal than people expect,” Keith revealed in a podcast. “He’s exactly what you get in interviews.”

Keith’s father was also a very present figure in her life as a child.

“I think it speaks volumes that the way I kind of remember childhood is I don’t really remember him being gone,” the 32-year-old continued. “When he was home, he was so present that I don’t remember the spans of him being gone.”

Her dad was also wary of her entering the entertainment industry at a young age. He wanted her to go to college first and have time to really think about her career path, reports Taste of Country.

“He didn’t want the industry to beat me up on being young and inexperienced,” she said. “His example was LeAnn Rimes. When she came out, she was so young and had this big huge voice that was amazing… but then as she grew up people still saw her as a kid.”

Keith definitely took her father’s words to heart. She took her time getting started on her solo music career.

She recently released her EP, Boulder, on July 13 after taking a five year break.
