NBC and sister networks will air Blake Shelton's concert to help his fellow Oklahomans affected by last week's storms in their home state.

Shelton's "Healing in the Heartland" benefit will be broadcast live as a telethon by NBC on Wednesday, May 29, at 8 p.m. Central.

It will also air on cable networks Style, G4, Bravo, E! and CMT on either a live or delayed basis.

Joining Shelton in performing will be Darius Rucker, Luke Bryan, Rascal Flatts and Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic, as well as Grammy Award-winning artists Usher, Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire, and Vince Gill.

The concert will originate from Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma City.

This week's disaster devastated Moore, Okla., and killed 24 people on May 20.

Shelton, a resident of nearby Ada, announced plans for the benefit after a recent episode of "The Voice."
