Musicians Pitch In To Make Oklahoma OK Again
A growing roster of Oklahoma-tied musicians and others are planning benefit concerts, television broadcasts and other events to help raise money for recovery efforts after this week's storms tore through many parts of the Sooner State.
Ada-raised Blake Shelton said he wants to host a telethon-like concert on NBC. Moore-raised Toby Keith told CNN's Piers Morgan that he's been contacted by folks at Oklahoma City's Chesapeake Arena and even stadium officials at the University of Oklahoma about a fundraising concert.

Now, his concert will be a benefit show, “We Can Help Moore,” with all proceeds going to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma’s tornado relief efforts. MORE HERE & HERE
