Toby Keith grew up in the area of Oklahoma hit by yesterday’s tornado. He remembers riding his bicycle through the neighborhoods devastated by the storm and still has family and friends in the area. Toby told CNN’s Anderson Cooper, the tornado passed less than a mile from his mother’s home. Toby’s name appears on the towns water tower. He issued a statement yesterday saying that Moore “is strong and will persevere”. He also tweeted his support for his hometown.
