NBC to air Shelton benefit for tornado victims

NBC and sister networks will air Blake Shelton’s concert to help his fellow Oklahomans affected by last week’s storms in their home state.

Shelton’s “Healing in the Heartland” benefit will be broadcast live as a telethon by NBC on Wednesday at 9 p.m. It will also air on cable networks Style, G4, Bravo, E! and CMT either live or on a delayed basis.

Joining Shelton in performing will be Grammy Award-winning artists Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire and Vince Gill. Additional guests will be announced shortly, NBC said Friday. The concert will originate from Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

This week’s disaster devastated Moore, Okla., and killed 24 people last week. Shelton, a resident of nearby Ada, announced plans for the benefit last week.

Separately, singer Carrie Underwood has said she is donating $1 million in proceeds from her recent Blown Away Tour to the Red Cross for disaster relief. Underwood grew up in Checotah, Okla.
