Country music star Toby Keith returned to Oklahoma Saturday to perform a sold-out benefit concert for the victims of the tornado that ravaged his hometown of Moore and killed 24 people May 20.
Nearly 65,000 people turned out at the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium to support the United Way of Central Oklahoma, which runs a fund to help all the victims of the May storms.
The Toby Keith tornado benefit concert featured a star-studded lineup
, including Trisha Yearwood, Sammy Hagar, Willie Nelson, Mel Tillis, John Anderson, Ronnie Dunn, Wade Hayes, and a satellite performance from Carrie Underwood from the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville.

Concert attendees took to Twitter to thank Keith for his performance and to show their support for the cause.
A similar concert hosted by country crooner Blake Shelton in May raised more than $6 million for the United Way.
