Willie Nelson  will be inducted into the National Agricultural Hall of Fame in Bonner Springs, Kansas next month. The ceremony is scheduled to take place on August 13, the same day the 26th annual Farm Aid concert will be held nearby Kansas City. Willie told the Associated Press  that he’s “honored and humbled to become the 39th inductee in the Agricultural Hall of Fame.”
Willie organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 with John Mellencamp and Neil Young to raise money for family farmers and bring awareness to their economic struggles. All three,as well as Dave Matthews, Jamey Johnson  and Jason Mraz among others, are scheduled to perform at this year’s Farm Aid concert.
