Dustin Lynch, Maddie & Tae & More To Play Virtual Concert To Benefit Farmers
Country stars Dustin Lynch, Maddie & Tae, Mickey Guyton, Travis Denning and Tyler Farr are set to perform at a virtual concert to benefit farmers.
Farm equipment maker Deere & Company is organizing the “Farm Must Go On by John Deere” virtual country music benefit concert, which will be streamed live on YouTube on Wednesday December 9 at 8:00 pm EST.
Proceeds from the concert will benefit Farm Rescue, a non-profit organization that has helped hundreds of farmers suffering from major illness, injury, or natural disaster to plant, hay or harvest their crop.
The two-hour show will honor and show how innovative, industrious and resilient farmers are.
“The impact of COVID-19 has been felt by everyone throughout the country and around the world. Farmers are no exception,” says Bill Gross, President and Founder of Farm Rescue, which provides the necessary farm equipment and volunteer manpower to farmers in need.
He added, “COVID highlights the vulnerability of family farms—when something unpredicted happens, not only is the family carrying that health burden, but also the pressure to produce, and the stresses of maintaining a viable operation.”
