Kenny Chesney Joins Farm Aid Lineup

Kenny Chesney will perform for Farm Aid’s annual Food and Music Festival benefit concert at Pennsylvania’s Hersheypark Stadium on Sat., Sept. 22.

“Growing up in a small town outside Knoxville, family farmers were a big part of our community,” said Chesney, who is from Luttrell, Tenn. “I am proud to play on the Farm Aid stage again, especially in Central Pennsylvania, where agriculture is at the heart of the community.”

Chesney joins the 2012 lineup featuring Farm Aid board members Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews (with Tim Reynolds). Jack Johnson, ALO, Pegi Young & The Survivors, and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real will also perform.
