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