Willie Nelson headlines 26th annual Farm Aid

Willie Nelson is still singing for his (and everyone elses') supper. He will lead the 26th annual Farm Aid concert next Saturday, August 13th at LiveStrong Sporting Park in Kansas City, KS. Gates open at noon and the show will go to about 11pm. Other notables who will crop up at the show include John Mellencamp, Neil Young, Dave Mathews and Jamey Johnson. To date, Farm Aid has raised over 39 million dollars to help family farmers. If you can't make the show, you can still contribute by purchasing Farm Aid gear or by sending a donation. In recognition of his efforts on behalf of farmers, Willie Nelson was recently inducted into the Agricultural Hall of Fame. (Just don't ask him what kind of crops he grows!)
