Kid Rock will join Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and others for Saturday’s annual Farm Aid concert outside Pittsburgh.

Dave Matthews, who joined Farm Aid’s board of directors last year, will also perform at the sold-out concert at the Post-Gazette Pavilion in Burgettstown, Pa. The concert will be broadcast live on CMT.

Nelson, Young and Mellencamp organized the first Farm Aid concert in 1985 to raise funds to keep farm families on their land. In 14 Farm Aid concerts since 1985, the organization has raised more than $24 million.
