Kenny Chesney will appear at this year's Farm Aid concert according to a message on his website posted Wednesday (July 25). This year's annual fundraising event will take place in Hershey, Pa., on Sept. 22. The lineup also features Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp, Neil Young and Dave Matthews, who are all Farm Aid board members. Proceeds from the concert will benefit family farmers. "Growing up in a small town outside Knoxville, family farmers were a big part of our community," Chesney said. "I am proud to play on the Farm Aid stage again, especially in central Pennsylvania, where agriculture is at the heart of the community."
