Toby Keith was one of the country music stars most effected by the devastating Moore, Oklahoma tornado. The EF5 touched down in his hometown, and close to where his sister, Tonni, lives. She was the first person Toby called while in studio with his daughter, Krystal Keith, when he heard the news on his iPad.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Toby admits he’s been thinking about putting together a benefit concert for the area:
“I know as soon as I start sending out some feelers that I’ll get a lot of people in there,” Keith said. “Hopefully, we can use music to heal some of the money problems right away.”
Toby is currently in the area surveying the damage. He was on NBC and FOX news this week discussing the need for relief help and how he knows the town is resilient.
