Dustin Lynch, Maddie & Tae, Mickey Guyton, Travis Denning and Tyler Farr will take part in “The Farm Must Go On by John Deere,” a virtual benefit concert to celebrate American farmers who are suffering during COVID-19. Deere & Company and Farm Rescue, a non-profit aimed at helping family farms and ranches in crisis, will host the show Dec. 9 (8pm ET).
“The impact of COVID-19 has been felt by everyone throughout the country and around the world. Farmers are no exception,” Farm Rescue founder and president Bill Gross said in a release. “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.”
The event, which aims to “celebrate and amplify the important work of farmers,” will be broadcast live via YouTube from Nashville’s Brooklyn Bowl.
