(RNN) - Some of country music's most famous sons and daughters call Oklahoma home. When an EF-5 tornado tore through their home state on May 20, helping was not optional.
They didn't have to get very creative to find a way.
Blake Shelton, who has a home in Tishomingo, OK, organized Healing in the Heartland, a benefit concert airing Wednesday on NBC, CMT, E! and other networks.
"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 hold it in Oklahoma City, which is near ground zero."
His fellow artists quickly got on board. Vince Gill, Oklahoma native Reba McEntire, Luke Bryan and Rascal Flatts have joined, along with Shelton's wife, Miranda Lambert.
The show begins at 9 p.m. EST.
Proceeds will benefit the United Way of Central Oklahoma.
Kelly Clarkson's new video
Kelly Clarkson, who somehow defies the bounds of natural talent yet somehow remains endearingly everywoman, has released a video for her latest single, People Like Us.
In the video, she infiltrates a research office, posing as a scientist, and saves a girl who has become the object of experimentation.
What else is Clarkson up to? Oh, just planning a wedding, recording a Christmas album and reportedly in talks to possibly serve as a judge on the next season of her alma-mater, American Idol.
No big deal.
As far as the release date on that Christmas album? We'll keep you posted.
The soulful sounds of Kristina Train
Thanks to Lexus' Amazing in Motion ad campaign, Kristina Train is finally receiving the attention she deserves. With Train's breathtakingly beautiful cover of Aretha Franklin's I'm Wanderingplaying in the background, the TV commercial gives just a taste of what Train brings to the table in her recently-released album Dark Black.
Having been compared to Norah Jones and Lana Del Rey, the soulful singer/songwriter brings a rare depth and emotion to music that leaves you wanting more. Her music takes a modern approach to timeless-sounding songs, and even after a few repeats of the album, you won't be ready to put it down.
Along with the release of Dark Black, Train recently posted a few covers on her YouTube page, including How Long Will I Love You by the Waterboys and These Days by Jackson Browne.
We encourage you to check out Dark Black on iTunes and allow yourself to be swept away by Train's soulful voice that seems to slow time down and take you to another place.
