"American family farmers are what this country is built on ... and they have fed us and kept us strong and healthy for how many generations?" Chesney, a Tennessee native, said in a statement. "Growing up in a small town outside Knoxville, it was a big part of who we were -- and it's something we as a country shouldn't lose. If I can help be part of that -- whether it's raising money, or awareness, or just letting those family farmers know someone knows and cares -- well, that's why I'm coming to New England."
Carolyn Mugar, executive director of Farm Aid, added: "We are proud to again welcome Kenny Chesney to the Farm Aid stage for what will prove to be a remarkable day of music, food, awareness and action."
