Willie Nelson spoke up about this year's August 13 Farm Aid concert at the Livestrong Sporting Park. Check it:

"I'm looking forward to bringing my friends together in Kansas for the first time to honor family farmers," said Farm Aid president Willie Nelson. "Farm Aid celebrates the independent family farmers and ranchers who make this country strong, and we know we can only fix the challenges our country faces with the know-how of family farmers."

More quotes from Farm Aid about this summer's concert:

"Willie, John, Neil and Dave stand up to say that our country needs family farmers," said Carolyn Mugar, executive director of Farm Aid. "Farm Aid 2011 is an opportunity for everyone to stand up with them. There is a strong culture of agriculture here in Kansas -- rural and urban -- and a growing movement to bring good food to everyone. We're proud to bring Farm Aid 2011 to the Sunflower State and shine a spotlight on the family farmers and ranchers whose hard work and innovations are essential for all of us."
