Toby Keith Teams With NBA’s Oklahoma City Thunder for Hometown

Toby narrates OKC Thunder: Heart of the City, honoring Moore, Okla.

The people of Oklahoma are a strong and proud lot, and one of the strongest voices in the Sooner State has to belong to Toby Keith. So it makes sense that he would narrate the original film OKC Thunder: Heart of the City, airing Nov. 22 on NBA TV.

The film documents the story of the people of Toby's hometown—Moore, Okla.—in the days following the devastating tornado that ravaged the Oklahoma City suburb earlier this year. The NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder were among the first to visit the community in attempt to raise the spirits of the people, and they continue to do so. Months later, the team held a training camp practice at the high school in Moore to show the people of the town they had not been forgotten while they continued to rebuild.

The 30-minute special airs at 7 p.m. ET on NBA TV.
