Blake Shelton Hosts “Healing In The Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert”. Blake Shelton has organized and will headline and host a major telethon, “Healing in the Heartland: Relief Benefit Concert,” this Wednesday (May 29). The concert/telethon/benefit proceeds will be going towards The United Way of Central Oklahoma May Tornado Relief Fund. The benefit will be held at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City at 7:30 pm tomorrow. Tickets for the benefit went on sale Saturday, but will also be televised live on NBC. Other cable networks including Style, G4, Bravo, E! and CMT will air the show on either a live or delayed basis. “Everyone has their way to help, and mine as an entertainer is to perform to help raise money and awareness for this tragedy,” Shelton said. “This is why I want to do this special and especially hod it in Oklahoma City, which is near ground zero.” Shelton will be performing along with Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill and more.
HaleighT Gets Ready To Make The Trip To OKC For The Concert To Be At! Tomorrow, January 19, I will be seeing one of my all-time favorite singers, George Strait. The show is the second of his Cowboy Rides Away tour and will be in Oklahoma City. If you aren’t a George Strait fan, then it is hard for me to describe the kind of ridiculous appreciation I have for him. On the other hand, if you are a true fan, then you get it. He is King George. He is Wranglers. He is Amarillo By Morning. He is Texas. He is the man tapping his foot behind his guitar. He is George and there is no one else like him. I have grown up listening to him my entire life. I have also grown up hearing every female in my family say that he is their husband…and I don’t even think it’s a strange thing to say! He is handsome, has a great voice, has tons of charisma and seems to be one of the most humble men that is in the music industry. His shows are simple with no flashing lights, yet he will sell out an arena in minutes. Not many can do that in music at all and even fewer can do it in country. I’m sure that tomorrow he won’t come even close to singing all of his over 70 #1 hits (we’d have to be there for days). But the good thing about it, is that everyone in that crowd will get to hear at LEAST 8 of their favorites and I’d say those are pretty good odds… So until Monday, when I tell you all how the show went, wish me well travels to the big city! Hopefully I will be able to sleep tonight in anticipation! Did I mention it is my birthday weekend? Oh…this is going to be a good time!
