Dunn is calling Keith's proposed event the "second wave" of help for the state, following the "first wave" of Shelton's "Healing in the Heartland"

Ronnie Dunn says he's on board for Toby Keith's upcoming benefit to help storm victims in Oklahoma. The former Brooks & Dunn singer tells Tulsa World he's let Toby know he's on board for the upcoming charity event. He says he's also spoken with Garth Brooks about the show, and Brooks has agreed to perform as well.
Dunn explains that "there are a lot of moving parts to work out." He adds that with Blake Shelton's event last week, he and Brooks decided to keep their "heads down until Blake's thing was done and until Toby took the lead." Dunn is calling Keith's proposed event the "second wave" of help for the state, following the "first wave" of Shelton's "Healing in the Heartland."
He explains that "there is a need for a second wave" and "there will be a need for months and months to come." Ronnie says Toby is shooting for hosting his show close to the Fourth of July. However, Keith's reps say no details on the event have been confirmed yet.
Dunn, who's a former Tulsa resident, has lent his talents to Oklahoma storm relief efforts before. He's also performed at benefits with Keith following major storms that hit the state in 1999 and 2003.
Keith began planning his benefit after a massive tornado struck his hometown of Moore, Oklahoma on May 20th. The state faced a second round of deadly tornadoes last Friday.
