The event will raise funds for the United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornadoes Relief Fund. Working with their local community partners, United Way of Central Oklahoma will use the fund for immediate, intermediate, and long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts.
Love's Travel Stops is underwriting the concert cost. The Oklahoma City-based company previously announced it was earmarking $1.5 million of a $3 million total donation to fund a benefit event.
R.A. Clark, who produces the Academy of Country Music Awards, is executive producer for the televised event.
Tuesday, Shelton and Lambert performed a heartfelt acoustic version of Lambert's emotional chart-topper “Over You” on “The Voice.” The couple co-wrote the song about the death of Shelton's brother, Richie, in a car accident.
After the live TV episode, Shelton announced that he and NBC were planning the Oklahoma City benefit concert.
This isn't the first time Shelton has reached out in the wake of tragic tornadoes in his home state. In 2011, Shelton and his longtime friend McEntire played a pair of relief shows after an EF3 twister hit the tiny Atoka County town of Tushka. The two sold-out Durant concerts, which featured special guests and more than two hours of entertainment, raised $500,000 for the Oklahoma victims.
