Willie Nelson

A campaign for a Nobel Peace Prize for Willie Nelson's Farm Aid work has been launched!

Willie Nelson's efforts for Farm Aid deserve a nomination for a Nobel Peace Prize.

Join the campaign by liking the Willie Nelson for Nobel Peace Prize page on Facebook.

Willie Nelson has been helping family farmers for over 25 years and has raised awareness of healthy foods while raising funds for the cause.

Willie Nelson, Neil Young and John Mellencamp organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 to raise awareness about the loss of family farms and to raise funds to keep farm families on their land. Dave Matthews joined the Farm Aid Board of Directors in 2001. Farm Aid has raised more than $37 million to promote a strong and resilient family farm system of agriculture. Farm Aid is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to keep family farmers on their land.

John Mellencamp is campaigning to get Willie Nelson a Nobel Peace Prize. The interview took place on SIRIUS XM Willie's Place at Farm Aid 25 in Milwaukee, Wisc.

Also, please share with friends to raise awareness. Use the Share button, located at the very bottom left of Willie Nelson for Nobel Peace Prize page on Facebook! Thanks everybody for liking!

wow, that has to be the worst lineup for farm aid i've ever seen. i remember the days when farm aid would get the likes of beck, tom petty, johnny cash, john fogerty, the supersuckers, etc. you know, actual TALENT. besides willie and neil, this lineup stinks to high heaven. oh well, as long as they sell out the place i guess it's a success.

There's not alot of sympathy for the family farmer right now as a large swath of American workers are hurting. Farmers may be losing their farms, but joe factory worker has lost his house. Farmers are getting high prices for crops and when people like Michelle Bachmann are getting farm subsidies, it's hard for me to shed a tear for the farmer. Wonder if Neil has ever gotten farm subsidies. I'd be kinda embarassed as an artist to be pleading for money for those folks in this economy.

Ole Neil's on a relentless drive before he kicks to prove his wife is somebody. Yawn.

i'm the first anon, but not the other 2. those guys (or girls) are jackasses. me? well, i'm a jackass too, but i love farm aid and i've been to 5 different concerts through the years. i just think the lineup this year is not that great, that's all. then again, maybe my memories of farm aid's glory days are a bit tinted through rose colored glasses. i'm remembering lousville '95 with hootie and the blowfish...yuck!

Looking forward to Neil and Dave, of course. But, dare I say, I'm looking forward to John Trudell even more! That guy totally rocks his artform. Beautiful!

worth it just for shaver - despite the futility of pushing Pegi. Let her go back to singing back-up.
