Monday’s (May 20) devastating tornado in Moore, Okla. touched the hearts of country music’s biggest stars, and more than a few were left worrying about friends and family they knew in the area. The state is home to some of the biggest names in country music — Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, Toby Keith, Vince Gill and Blake Shelton are just a few who have roots there, with one superstar having grown up in Moore.

“This storm has devastated the community that I grew up in,” Keith wrote following the storm. “I rode my bike through those neighborhoods. I have family and friends in Moore. My heart and prayers go to those that have lost so much.” Monday night he called Anderson Cooper on CNN and shared that his sister’s house was hit by a twister that has left at least 24 dead. It passed less than a mile from where his mother lives.

“#PrayForOklahoma,” Trisha Yearwood wrote on Facebook. The singer and Brooks live in Oklahoma, as do his daughters. “Pray for everyone devastated by these storms, but especially for those families in Moore, OK right now…God, wrap your arms around this community.”
