Willie Nelson Welcomes All-Star Lineup for Farm Aid

Kacey Musgraves, Carlene Carter and others set for Sept. 21 show in New York.

Willie Nelson continues his support for American farming families with the next edition of his Farm Aid concerts, scheduled for Sept 21 at Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. Willie is set to perform along with his fellow Farm Aid board members Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews, and will also welcome a special guest lineup.

Red-hot rising star Kacey Musgraves is on the bill, along with Jack Johnson, Amos Lee, Toad the Wet Sprocket, JD & The Straight Shot, veteran country artist Carlene Carter, Bahamas and Pegi Young & The Survivors. Also performing is Willie's son Lukas, who heads the alt-country group Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real.

In addition to the all-star music lineup, Farm Aid will spotlight family-farm food and educational activities about family farms. Since 1985, the Farm Aid concerts have raised more than $43 million to support programs that help American farmers thrive and to inspire people to choose family-farm food.
