Willie Nelson, Jamey Johnson Plan Railroad Revival Tour

Tour Will Travel Across U.S. on 16 Vintage Rail Cars

Willie Nelson and Jamey Johnson will be joined by rockers Band of Horses and actor-musician John C. Reilly for the second running of the Railroad Revival tour this fall.

Taking place Oct. 20-Oct. 28, the unique tour travels across the U.S. on 16 vintage rail cars and combines the country’s rich train history with organic American music, according to the tour promoter. The artists will live and collaborate together on the train and perform eight concerts in large outdoor venues near the tracks.

Reilly, who portrayed a country singer in the 2007 comedy, Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story, has released singles on Jack White’s Third Man Records label.

Last year’s inaugural event featured Mumford & Sons, Old Crow Medicine Show and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros and culminated in a film about the tour, Big Easy Express.

Tickets for the 2012 Railroad Revival tour go on sale Friday (July 27) at 11 a.m. ET.
