July 28, 2008 at 8:27 AM (PT)
BNA RECORDS star KENNY CHESNEY will be joining the lineup for this year’s edition of FARM AID. The concert, which will be the 23rd FARM AID, will mark CHESNEY’s 2nd appearance at the well-known concert for AMERICA’s family farmers. He will be joining the concert’s founder WILLIE NELSON, JOHN MELLENCAMP, NEIL YOUNG and The DAVE MATTHEWS BAND at GILLETE STADIUM, where he just recently played a sold-out concert.
“Any time you can do something to help out what WILLIE, DAVE, JOHN or even NEIL, who I don't really know, are involved with, you want to because you can bet it's a good cause,” CHESNEY explains. “Seeing artists from different kinds of music coming together for something as basic as this makes you realize how far-reaching what the family farmers are facing is.”
