MOORE, Oklahoma (AP) – Toby Keith says sure, there will be a benefit concert to help victims of the massive tornado in his hometown of Moore, Oklahoma. But he says the town where he grew up has more pressing concerns than a show. He says there are still funerals and memorials to attend, people in hospitals who need healing – and homes that need to be boarded up or rebuilt. Once those immediate needs are cared for, Keith says he and his musician friends will be on hand to try to raise money to help in the recovery effort. As a native son of Moore, Keith is feeling the tragedy – and it has affected members of his family. He says his sister’s home was damaged in the twister and some of his relatives are bunking together because of the storm.
