Jack White doesn’t seem to care too much about baseball, but he does care about America’s farmers. And to show his appreciation he’s headlining this year’s Farm Aid in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Willie Nelson has been making music for decades and in addition to being one of the most recognized artists in country music, he’s a well established and respected songwriter throughout the music world.
“We’re glad to be here, but we’re very sorry we have to be here. This problem should have been solved long ago.” — Willie Nelson at Farm Aid 2012
Legendary country artist, activist and humanitarian Willie Nelson was hospitalized over the weekend in Colorado. True to his lyrics, reports are he is ‘fine’ and he just “can’t wait to get on the road again!”
Farm Aid’s principals — Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews — have announced this year’s Farm Aid concert. The show will take place at Hershey Park Stadium in Hershey, Pennsylvania, on September 22.
