Toby Keith is providing $2 million worth of help to the residents of his home state. 

A post on the country star's website says that's how much money he raised this summer with his "Oklahoma Twister Relief Concert," and adds that donations are "still being tallied." 

Keith hosted the all-star marathon concert back in July, which drew a record crowd of more than 60-thousand to the University of Oklahoma's Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman.  Garth Brooks, Ronnie Dunn, Willie Nelson, Carrie Underwood, and Trisha Yearwood are some of the stars who took part in the event.  

The money is going to local recovery efforts across Central Oklahoma through The United Way Of Central Oklahoma May Tornado Relief Fund.
