The show will also feature Lukas Neslon, Micah Nelson and John Mellencamp
A few weeks after Willie Nelson's annual Luck Reunion was held online (due to COVID-19 restrictions), the country legend has announced that his Farm Aid show will also be live streamed digitally.
Taking place on April 11 at 8pm EST, the concert will feature Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews as well as Nelson's sons Lukas Micah.
"On the Farm Aid stage last September, my friend and fellow board member John Mellencamp said, ‘Be hopeful about, have faith in and be grateful for right now; the miracle of life is in the dirt under our farmers’ fingernails,’” Nelson said. “He was right and I’m so grateful for the farmers, ranchers and farmworkers who are on the frontlines sustaining all our communities. Now, more than ever, stay strong and positive.”
Farm Aid has not taken a year off since its inception in 1985. Nelson's latest album First Rose of Spring is dropping later than he expected, but once it's released, he will be taking part in Christ Stapleton's "All-American Road Show" tour.
