Oklahoma country music superstars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert, who live in Tishomingo, will perform a special rendition of their emotional hit “Over You” in honor of Oklahomans affected by this week’s deadly tornadoes tonight on “The Voice.”

The hit reality TV show, on which Shelton serves as a celebrity coach, airs live at 8 tonight on NBC.

“Blake and I will be performing an acoustic version of “Over You” tonite on @NBCTheVoice dedicated to Oklahoma. #PrayForOklahoma,” Lambert posted today on Twitter @mirandalambert.

Lambert and Shelton co-wrote her emotional chart-topper about the death of his brother, Richie, in a car accident. The song has earned song of the year honors from the Academy of Country Music and Country Music Association.

On Twitter Monday night, Lambert urged her followers to “Pray. That’s all we an do. Pray for peace for Oklahoma.”

Also on tonight’s live episode of “The Voice,” Muskogee’s The Swon Brothers, as well as other contenders on “The Voice” Season 4 Top 10, will learn if they received enough votes to continue on in the competition.
