Willie Nelson has once again teamed with Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews, and rounded up some of the best musicians in the land for the 31st annual Farm Aid Concert, a live one-day festival that raises funds for local farmers and will be broadcast live on his exclusive SiriusXM channel.
“Folks are educating themselves about where and how food is grown — they’re hungry for the truth,” said Nelson, Farm Aid’s president and founder. “Family farmers bring us good food, protect our soil and water, and strengthen our country. The Farm Aid concert is a day for us to honor that truth and keep working for family farmers.”
