Willie Nelson Gears Up For Farm Aid

As Willie Nelson prepares for his annual Farm Aid concert, he is set to be honored for 26 years of supporting agriculture with the long-running event.

Nelson will be inducted into the Agricultural Hall of Fame during a Aug. 12 ceremony, the morning before Farm Aid 2011 at Livestrong Sporting Park in Kansas City, Kan.

Set to perform at Farm Aid 2011 are Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Jason Mraz, Jamey Johnson, Jakob Dylan, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real and more.

As Farm Aid’s founder and president, Nelson has worked to increase awareness about the loss of family farms, and has raised more than $39 million for the cause through the concerts.
