Toby Keith, Garth Brooks plan Okla. relief concert

NORMAN, Okla. — Another star-studded country music concert is planned to benefit victims of the deadly tornadoes in Oklahoma last month.

Toby Keith announced Thursday his Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert will be held July 6 at the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman. Joining Keith is fellow Oklahoman Garth Brooks and his wife, Trisha Yearwood. Other performers include Willie Nelson and Ronnie Dunn.

Organizers say the $25 tickets will go on sale June 21.

Keith is a native of Moore, where 24 people were killed in an EF5 tornado on May 20. Brooks, who lives in Owasso, says he's honored to participate in the concert.

A concert last month hosted by Blake Shelton raised more than $6 million for the United Way of Central Oklahoma.
