A new Farm Aid concert is set to air Saturday night on AXS TV. “At Home with Farm Aid,” will feature performances by the organizations board members, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews, and like the title suggests, they'll all be performing from their homes.
The special will air at 8 pm and be hosted by Willie and his sons Lukas and Micah Nelson. Like other Farm Aids, the program will benefit family farmers.
“The coronavirus has disrupted our entire country and is a grave threat to all of us,” Willie shares. “One of its many impacts is that it has helped us to better see the value of essential people like healthcare workers, grocery store clerks, delivery truck drivers, and farmers and ranchers."
He adds, “Farm Aid has worked for 35 years to build a family farm centered agricultural system, and we are here now to support farmers and ranchers in this crisis, without whom we could not eat. The time to build a resilient family farm food system is now.”
- ONE MORE THING! AXS TV will also air “The Best of Farm Aid 2019" on Sunday, featuring two-hours of highlights from last year’s concert.
