Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp Rock Colbert's 'Late Show' Stage

(Radio.com) Willie Nelson hit Colbert's Late Show stage with John Mellencamp for a performance of, what else, 'Night Life." The Farm Aid banner was displayed on the screen behind them to promote the 30th anniversary of the concert they will be playing on Saturday (Sept. 19).

'The legacy of Farm Aid is twofold: in the change we've made in our farm and food system, and in the rich musical record of concerts held since 1985," said Mellencamp in a press release, at the time it was announced that he and Nelson would play the benefit show. 'The list of artists who have played on the Farm Aid stage is a who's who of the best artists of our time."

Aside from promoting Farm Aid--which raises money for struggling family farms and raises awareness about locally produced food--Nelson and Mellencamp have given Colbert another feather in his cap for hosting heavy-hitter musical guests in the first days as Late Show host on CBS (a parent company of Radio.com).
