    More Oklahoma natives are coming to the rescue of their fellow statesmen, namely country icons Garth Brooks and Toby Keith, after the devastating tornado that hit Moore, Oklahoma in May.

    Toby Keith's Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert will be held Saturday, July 6 at the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman. Doors open at 1:30PM, show time is 3PM. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 21 at 10AM; all seats are $25, all inclusive, all seats reserved, eight-ticket purchase limit.

    Fellow Okie Blake Shelton held a benefit right after the storms, which raised millions, as well.

    The star-studded lineup of performers, now being assembled, will include Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood, and Ronnie Dunn. Proceeds will benefit The United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund. Updates on the event and lineup will be posted at tobykeith.com.

    For Keith, this event and the May storms that led to it are deeply personal. "I grew up in Moore, I live in Norman and I've got lots of family and friends who were directly affected," he says. "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 these communities."

    You know it!

    "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 says. "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."

    What can you do to assist those in need in Oklahoma?
