Willie Nelson is a co-founder and President of Farm Aid, along with Neil Young, and John Mellencamp. The three agreed that family farmers were in dire need of assistance and in 1985 planned the first Farm Aid concert for American farmers. The following year, Farm Aid II was held on July 4 with performances by Alabama, The Beach Boys, Bob Dylan, Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris, Julio Iglesias, Waylon Jennings, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and many more.
