Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard Launching US Tour This Fall

(Radio.com) Country music legends Willie Nelson and Merle Haggard release their album Django and Jimmie in June of this year, and now the two will hit the road together for a U.S. Tour.

Django & Jimmie marks the duo's six collaborative album; it's a tribute to early country music legend Jimmie Rodgers and to guitar virtuoso Django Reinhardt.

The short run of dates begins mid October in South Carolina, with a bonus gig in Forth Worth to close things out in November. Before the tour kicks off Nelson will headline the 30th edition Farm Aid on September 19th in Chicago along with Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews, Imagine Dragons, Jack Johnson, and Kacey Musgraves.
