Toby Keith Announces ‘Twister Relief’ Concert

Toby Keith rounds up his friends Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood, and Ronnie Dunn for a charity relief concert in Norman, Okla., to help those affected by the recent tornadoes that devastated parts of the state.

Called the star-studded concert will take place at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman July 6 with proceeds benefiting The United Way Of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund.

“I grew up in Moore, I live in Norman and I’ve got lots of family and friends who were directly affected,” Keith said.  “I know these folks and they’re resilient, but we’re going to keep helping them any way we can. I’m proud to get together with some others from around here who are just as committed as I am to supporting those communities.”

Oklahoma native Brooks also had something to say.

“Once we got the news that the tornado had hit Toby’s hometown, Miss Yearwood and I told Toby we were at his service for whatever he chose to do,” Brooks said.  “I am amazed at the human spirit the tornado victims have shown.  I am humbled by the giving of the volunteers.  It is an honor to get to be a part of this healing process.”
