Oklahoma Rising


On September 11, 2006, a crowd at Oklahoma City's Civic Center Music Hall was introduced to Oklahoma's Centennial    Song - "Oklahoma Rising", a collaboration between two of Oklahoma's favorite sons: Jimmy Webb and Vince Gill, winners of multiple Grammy and Academy of Country Music Awards.

Featuring lyrics by Webb and music by Gill, "Oklahoma Rising" remembers Oklahoma's early days and explores the promise of the 21st century. It also touches on difficult periods, from the Dust Bowl to the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building. 

Sit back and treat yourself to this music video presentation of Oklahoma's majestic beauty and colorful history, courtesy of the Oklahoma Tourism and Recreation Department.
