Garth Brooks To Perform At Toby Keith's Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert

Toby Keith will host the Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert on Saturday, July 6.  Garth Brooks, Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood, and Ronnie Dunn will be among the performers.

The concert will be held at the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

Keith's hometown of Moore, Oklahoma was hit hard by the May storms, so this event is personal for the country star.  He explains:

"I grew up in Moore, I live in Norman and I've got lots of family and friends who were directly affected.  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." 

Brooks, also an Oklahoma native, 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."
