Luke Combs, Tanya Tucker Set to Play ‘Farm Aid’ Saturday
Sept 21 will mark the 34th anniversary of the wildly popular benefit concert Farm Aid, and the entertainment lineup, as always, is amazing. The concert will be held at the Alpine Valley Music Theater in East Troy, Wisconsin this year. Founding members Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, and Dave Matthews will once again be part of the stellar lineup.
Other performers lending their talents to help America's farmers include Margo Price, Luke Combs, Jamey Johnson, Tanya Tucker, and Bonnie Raitt. Brothers Osborne were slated to play, but pulled out yesterday due to 'personal issues'.
According to the mission statement on the official website 'Farm Aid works year-round to build a system of agriculture that values family farmers, good food, soil and water, and strong communities. Our annual music and food festival celebrates farmers, eaters and music coming together for change'.
If you can't be at the festival, then you can make a donation at any time. The annual charity show has raised over $57 million dollars for America's farmers. You can hear the live concert on the 'Willie's Roadhouse' channel on Sirius / XM satellite radio, and also on the free mobile Farm Aid app. Check out the video below, where the founders explain why this is such an important annual event for all Americans, not just farmers.
