Adley Stump and Joe Diffie Honor Oklahoma Tornado Victim’s Family

Adley Stump Joe Diffie Nissan Giveaway

For those of you who follow Adley Stump on Twitter and Facebook, you know she has been updating her social media pages over the last week, saying that she stole Joe Diffie‘s new Nissan and is on the run with the truck. Yesterday, Adley updated her followers, advising that Joe found her and his Nissan and that the two would be heading to their home state of Oklahoma to do something very special later that night. And special it was, indeed.

As you all will recall, in May 2013, Oklahoma City and its surrounding areas were devastated by a tornado, which claimed the lives of many. One of the victims of the storm was third grader, Antonia Candelaria, who went to elementary school like every other day and, along with six other students, never came home.

While driving around in the Nissan, Adley stopped in six cities in three different states, telling the Candelaria family’s story. Her final stop, with Joe in tow, was to meet the Candelarias and present them with a brand new, fully loaded Nissan Titan. Adley expresses her gratitude to Capital Mortgage, Nissan, and Joe Diffie, as well as her fans, for their support for making this happen for the Moore, Oklahoma family.

Thank you to Adley for taking us on her journey over the last few days and sharing with everyone her selflessness as she reached her destination. If you have learned one thing this week, let it be to always hug your loved ones before you part ways and that, despite the negativity in this world, there are more wonderful people, like Adley and Joe, out there than people who bring us down.

Our continued thoughts and prayers go out to the Candelarias and the other victims of the Oklahoma tornado. We hope the Candelaria family makes many incredible memories with their new Nissan Titan!

Oklahoma’s Own Adley Stump Lends Her Vocals to Aid Her Home State

In response to the recent tornadoes in Oklahoma, Oklahoma vocalist, Adley Stump from Season 2 of NBC’s “The Voice” is working with fellow native Oklahomans and Nashville songwriters to bring more attention and support for the recent tornado victims.

Without hesitation, Adley rushed into the studio to record a song that will be released May 24th to iTunes, as well as to many radio and television stations. All proceeds from the song will be donated to the Red Cross to be used to help the Oklahoma tornado victims.

“I immediately tried to figure out how I could help,” Adley says. “I think in this situation everyone just tries to figure out what they have that they can give. What I have is music, and here in Nashville there is nothing we know more than the power of a song. So when a friend from home e-mailed the song asking if I’d sing it, I knew immediately that’s how I could help. The song was perfect; I knew immediately I wanted to get in the studio with it. I hope it brings true comfort and healing for the hearts of those affected.”

Adley also intends to pull together a benefit concert in Oklahoma with other fellow Oklahoman musicians with the proceeds dedicated to the relief effort in Oklahoma. Information on this relief concert is being developed and further details will be released in the near future.

As soon as Adley agreed to sing, the Bennett family of First Oklahoma Bank provided the funds to make the project possible. The song is called “Weather the Storm” and was written by hit songwriters Bernie Nelson, Will Champlin and Adriene Smith Garrison and produced by hit songwriter/producers Philip Douglas and Greg Bieck.

Make sure to keep an eye on iTunes tomorrow so you can download Adley’s new song while helping those in need as a result of the horrific tornadoes that swept through Oklahoma. And stay tuned to Keepin’ It Country (and our social media pages) for further information on the benefit concert being planned by our friend, Adley, in support of her home state.
