“When Toby asked me to come on board, I immediately said ‘Yes!‘”
said Sammy Hagar “He’s put together a hell of a concert lineup to help
raise funds for the brave and resilient people of Oklahoma. My job is
going to be to help them take their minds off their problems and have
some much needed, good old-fashioned fun.”
For
Keith, this event and the May storms that led to it are deeply
personal. “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.”
“Once
we got the news that the tornado had hit Toby’s hometown, Miss Yearwood
and I told Toby we were at his service for whatever he chose to do,”
Brooks says. “I am amazed at the human spirit the tornado victims have
shown. I am humbled by the giving of the volunteers. It is an honor to
get to be a part of this healing process.”
Updates on the event and lineup will be posted at www.tobykeith.com.
