Sept. 22, 2019: Farm Aid – Nelson, Young, Cougar

On September 22, 1985, The first Farm Aid Concert was held. Organized by Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp, Farm Aid was a benefit live concert to collect funds for and to bring abut awareness of the plight of many small family farms hitting hard times during the 1980’s. Economic conditions and changes in markets and farm production was hurting the small family farm, and Mellencamp, Nelson, and Young started the movement to help, and it continues annually to today.
