Several country artists spoke out on the aftermath of the Oklahoma tornado, Miranda Lambert will joined Blake Shelton on The Voice to perform an acoustic version of “Over You” and urge donations for recovery. Shelton said: “They’re going through hell there right now.”  “Lot of fatalities, lot of children. It makes it hard to actually sit here and do this tonight, speaking of his show, The Voice, but [I've] got a job to do and my team’s counting on me, so here I am.” Other Oklahoma natives and residents have expressed sympathy and concern via social media:

  • Carrie Underwood: “Growing up in tornado alley, you always know what could happen … it doesn’t change how devastating it is when something does happen. #pray”
  • Joe Don Rooney: “My thoughts & prayers are with my home state of Oklahoma. May God’s love & grace be with all affected by these horrible storms.”
  • Reba: “All my prayers go out to the folks in Oklahoma dealing with these tornados.  Stay safe everyone!”
  • Trisha Yearwood: “Pray for everyone devastated by these storms, but especially for those families in Moore, OK right now … God, wrap your arms around this community.”

“This storm has devastated the community that I grew up in,” Toby Keith says. “I rode my bike through those neighborhoods. I have family and friends in Moore. My heart and prayers go to those that have lost so much. But Moore is strong and we will persevere. God be with you all.”
