Shelton, a musician coach of NBC's The Voice, teamed up with McEntire, his adviser on the competition series, for two relief concerts May 25 and 26 in Durant, Oklahoma. Kelly Clarkson even made a surprise appearance at the May 26 relief show.

The duo -- both Oklahoma natives -- donated all proceeds to the Tushka Disaster Relief fund.
