After nearly 10 years of retirement, Garth Brooks is set to return to the big stage for a worthy cause. The mega country music star will play a concert along with Toby Keith to benefit the victims of the recent devastating tornados in Oklahoma.

"Once we got the news that the tornado had hit Toby's hometown, Miss Yearwood and I told Toby we were at his service for whatever he chose to do," Brooks told Tulsa World. "I am amazed at the human spirit the tornado victims have shown. I am humbled by the giving of the volunteers. It is an honor to get to be a part of this healing process."

Brooks and Keith will perform at the concert on July 6 at the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord Family - Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. Garth's wife Trisha is also on the bill for the event as well as other country music notables such as Willie Nelson, Trisha Yearwood and Ronnie Dunn.

Garth and Keith are both Oklahoma natives with ties to people in some of the most hard-hit areas in the state.

"I grew up in Moore, I live in Norman and I've got lots of family and friends who were directly affected," Keith told NBC's Today Entertainment."I know these folks, and they're resilient, but we're going to keep helping them any way we can. I'm proud to get together with some others from around here who are just as committed as I am to supporting these communities," he said.

Keith and the musicians he enlisted will play the second country music concert to benefit tornado victims, after Blake Shelton raised more than $6 million in funds for the United Way of Central Oklahoma's disaster relief fund.

The May 31, 2013 tornado killed 22 people, according to The Oklahoma medical examiner's office.
