Reba McEntire, Vince Gill to perform at Blake Shelton's Oklahoma tornado relief concert in OKC

OKLAHOMA CITY - Tickets went on sale this morning for next week's Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert in Oklahoma City.

The lineup for Blake Shelton's concert was announced Friday afternoon and it includes some of Oklahoma's biggest music stars.

Tickets are $25.

The live one-hour special and telethon will air Wednesday, May 29 at 8 p.m. on NBC.

Shelton, who was born and raised in Oklahoma and currently lives in Tishomingo, will headline the concert.

Joining Shelton are his wife and fellow country star, Miranda Lambert, and country legends Reba McEntire and Vince Gill, who are both native Oklahomans.

Additional guests will be announced later.

The event is raising money for the United Way of Central Oklahoma's May Tornadoes Relief Fund.

Shelton helped raise $500,000 after the 2011 Oklahoma tornadoes and he hopes to do the same for Moore and Shawnee, which were hit Sunday by an EF4.

"I've got a plan and we're going to do some things," said Shelton.  "If there's one thing I can do to help it's to try to raise some money through music.  And we're putting together a plan right now for something that hopefully will be a lot of help."

The live concert is at Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.  Tickets are on sale at the arena's box office, all Ticketmaster locations, by phone at (800) 745-3000 and online at chesapeakearena.com .
