farm aidFor more than three decades, Farm Aid has worked diligently to build a dynamic family farm-centered agricultural system benefiting farms both big and small. Now, with COVID-19 presenting farmers across the country with a new set of challenges to overcome, Farm Aid is responding immediately to invest in farmer-led solutions to the COVID-19 crisis and advocate for recovery funds and resources for short-term relief and long-term resilience.

Farm Aid president Willie Nelson (and one of our favorite guys ever) said, “Farm Aid has worked for 35 years to build a family farm centered agricultural system, and we are here now to support farmers and ranchers in this crisis, without whom we could not eat. The time to build a resilient family farm food system is now!”

In addition to watching this all new Farm Aid special, viewers can relive powerhouse performances from Nelson, Mellencamp, Young, Matthews  and more when AXS TV presents The Best Of Farm Aid 2019 on Sunday, April 12, at 7 p.m. The two-and-a-half-hour special compiles footage from AXS TV’s live broadcast of the 2019 festival, giving viewers the best seat in the house for hit-packed sets from Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats, Tanya Tucker, Margo Price, Yola and Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real, among others, as well as Bonnie Raitt’s previously-unaired performance of “Devil Got My Woman.”
