Toby Keith has set a date and a lineup for his star-studded tornado relief show in Oklahoma.

Garth Brooks, his wife, Trisha Yearwood, Willie Nelson and Ronnie Dunn will all be part of the “Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert” on July 6. It’s happening at Memorial Stadium at the University of Oklahoma in Norman.

The tix will all be $25, and they go on sale June 21. The money goes to the Tornadoes Relief Fund at United Way of Central Oklahoma.

Garth, an Oklahoma native, said in a statement that he told Toby that he and Trisha were at Toby’s service once they heard the tornadoes hit Toby’s hometown.

“I am amazed at the human spirit the tornado victims have shown,” Garth said. “I am humbled by the giving of the volunteers.

“It is an honor to get to be a part of this healing process.”

Garth also helped out Nashville flood victims in a big way in 2010, doing nine concerts at Nashville’s arena and donating all the proceeds to agencies helping flood victims.

Toby said in a statement, “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.”
