Toby Keith tornado relief concert details

Toby Keith.

As we previously reported here on Keepin’ it Country, country superstar, and Oklahoma native, Toby Keith has been busy organizing a tornado relief concert. His charity concert, which will be held on July 6th at Memorial Stadium at the University of Oklahoma, will raise money for victims of the May 20th deadly tornadoes. Tickets will be $25 each and will go on-sale on Friday, June 21st, with proceeds benefiting the United Way of Central Oklahoma.

About the concert and the devastation in his home town of Moore, Toby said:

“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.”

Special guests so far announced include Trisha Yearwood, Ronnie Dunn, Willie Nelson, and Garth Brooks. We’ll keep you updated as more country stars are added to Toby’s line-up.

We are also running a special event in support of the United Way of Central Oklahoma. Keep checking out Keepin’ it Country for our online auctions.

Blake Shelton Enlists His Friends for “Boys ‘Round Here” Celeb Remix

BlakeShelton

With quite the arsenal of celebrity friends, it’s only fitting for Blake Shelton to bring his new brand of redneck to all facets of the country world. He’s released a “Celebrity Mix” of his current single, “Boys ‘Round Here,” that is sure to have you “red-ing” along with the best of them.

In addition to the Pistol Annies, the song also features Jason Aldean, Luke Bryan, Ronnie Dunn, Miranda Lambert, Brad Paisley, Reba, Josh Turner, Keith Urban and Hank Williams, Jr.

Hear the new mix here:

Ronnie Dunn & Toby Keith teaming up for Oklahoma

Ronnie Dunn.

Country icon Ronnie Dunn is teaming up with Toby Keith for a big benefit concert benefitting the victims of the Moore, Oklahoma concert. The two superstars have been working hard since they heard the news of the EF5 tornado. The two have actually jumped Garth Brooks’ fence to get him into the show… and it worked.

Ronnie said this on Facebook:

We were up all night firing texts and emails. Toby and I climbed over Garth’s fence. He’s in…just rying to figure out how to make it all happen for the best !!!!….but, “he still has to clear things with Trisha” . Janine (Oklahoma girl) just wants me out of the house…period.
We’re ALL in agreement…”it’s Toby’s town and we want to be respectful and do the right thing by following his lead.”
Everyone involved is feeling like THIS needs to be organic and REAL…..”get down in the dirt”. Take it straight to the people without a tremendous amount of pomp….but BIIIIIG !!!

THIS IS REALLY EXCITING !!! RD

We can’t wait to see who else will join this line-up for a great cause. Our thoughts remain with Moore, Oklahoma.

 

Oklahoma country stars reflect on tornado

Toby Keith.

Our thoughts remain with Oklahoma and the victims of the tornado earlier this week. Country music stars are also reflecting and praying for the region after an EF 5, the highest rating a tornado can receive, touched down in the region.

Toby Keith said:

“This storm has devastated the community that I grew up in. I rode my bike through those neighborhoods. I have family and friends in Moore. My heart and prayers go to those that have lost so much. But Moore is strong and we will persevere. God be with you all.”

Krystal Keith:

“Please pray for my Okie’s today and in the coming days. I am devastated to watch the footage from afar. Feeling pretty helpless today.”

Carrie Underwood:

“I’m thinking about and praying for my beautiful home state and the people in it tonight. Growing up in Tornado Alley, you always know what could happen. It doesn’t change how devastating it is when something does happen. #pray.”

Miranda Lambert:

“Pray. That’s all we can do. Pray for peace for Oklahoma.”

Blake Shelton:

“Just landed in LA and hearing about all the tornados in Oklahoma right now… Get somewhere safe!”

Ronnie Dunn records on Kelly Clarkson’s Christmas Album

Kelly Clarkson.

Maybe the question of Kelly Clarkson totally going country may be solved once and for all. While she was performing her country single “Don’t Rush” last night on the Academy of Country Music Awards, country legend Ronnie Dunn revealed some pretty exciting news on his Facebook fan page. Turns out… Kelly is putting together her own Christmas album, and he’ll be a part of it!

Ronnie Dunn: I like Kelly Clarkson…..I’m singing on her Christmas record :)

Maybe the vocal powerhouse got the idea after guesting on Blake Shelton‘s “Cheers… it’s Christmas” record last year. Fans should be able to expect Kelly’s still-untitled Christmas album out this Holiday season. Do you think she should go country or stay pop? Who do you want to see on the album? Let us know!
