“We couldn’t be more proud to lend a hand to our home state. We were all devastated by what happened there,” said Jared Followill, bassist for Kings of Leon, a Grammy-winning rock band that has Oklahoma City and Talihina ties, in the release. “We have family and friends that were affected by the tornados … this is the least we could do.”
