The concert will take place over the Fourth of July weekend -- July 6th at Oklahoma University's Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman. Also on board so far are Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood. Proceeds will go to The United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund.
“I grew up in Moore [Okla.], I live in Norman and I’ve got lots of family and friends who were directly affected,” Keith 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.”
“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.”
Tickets, which will go for $25 regardless of the seat, go on sale on June 21st at 10:00 a.m.
