The state of Oklahoma will come together Saturday (7/6) for Toby Keith’s sold-out Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert. The event will be held at the University of Oklahoma’s Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, and the singer says the facility has been more than helpful.
Toby Keith: “With open arms they just said, ‘Hey we want you to take this facility and help Oklahoma.’ They have been absolutely wonderful to work with – they’ve knocked it out of the park. You know the football field is natural grass, so it will have to be replaced after it’s over. Coach Stoops will have his squad on the field working in August, so they’ll only have less than a month to prepare the field. So I said, ‘Is that going to be a problem?’ They said, ‘Oh no that’s not a problem at all. We know how to do it.’”
The OklahomaTwister Relief Concert has just announced that Toby’s daughter, Krystal Keith, will join previously announced performers, Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Ronnie Dunn, Carrie Underwood, Sammy Hagar, Willie Nelson, Mel Tillis, and John Anderson. Toby has something else to celebrate this weekend, as he will turn 52 on Monday (7/8)!
