Los Angeles (April 16, 2020) – AXS TV, the premier television network and digital media company for music programming, was proud to partner with Farm Aid to produce and broadcast the special virtual benefit concert event At Home With Farm Aid. The concert, which originally aired on Saturday, April 11, raised over $500,000 for family farmers impacted by the effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

The hour-long event was hosted by Farm Aid founder Willie Nelson and his sons Lukas and Micah. The trio was joined remotely by fellow music legends and Farm Aid board members John Mellencamp, Neil Young, and Dave Matthews, who each put their talents on full display for an intimate performance to inform viewers of what family farmers are facing in the face of the coronavirus, and empower them to do what they can to strengthen farmers and our food system, upon which we all depend. The evening’s many highlights included Nelson and his sons performing his signature hit “On The Road Again” and “I Thought About You, Lord;” Dave Matthews covering Nelson’s “Ain’t It Funny How Time Slips Away,” as well as the fan-favorite “Satellite,” and his new song “Windows;” John Mellencamp performing “Jack And Diane” and “Rain On The Scarecrow;” and Neil Young performing “Vampire Blues” and “Helpless.

The money raised during this unforgettable evening is already helping Farm Aid invest in farmer-led solutions to the COVID-19 crisis; making emergency grants to farmers and ranchers in need; creating comprehensive resources for farmers; connecting farmers to legal, financial, and mental health support resources; supporting local, state, and national farm organizations; and advocating for COVID-19 recovery funds and resources from the federal government for short-term relief and long-term resilience.

At Home With Farm Aid is the latest entry in AXS TV’s new “@Home And Social” initiative—an ongoing series giving artists a platform to broadcast live performances from their homes and studios directly to their fans, with proceeds supporting those in need as a result of the coronavirus.

“So many industries have been deeply affected as a result of the coronavirus, and we have made it our mission to help them,” said Sarah Weidman, Head Of Original Programming, Development and Multi-Platform Content for AXS TV. “AXS TV was honored to join forces with Farm Aid to broadcast and produce At Home With Farm Aid, raising much-needed funds and awareness for family farmers who provide such a vital resource not just to the United States, but to the world.”

The main goal of our events calendar is to get as many events as possible in one place to make it easier for fans. All events have ticket links, venue information, date and time. But some events have more, and some have a lot more and are basically event previews. It depends on the information available at the time we post the event and if we are able to update that event, etc. The other goal is keeping fans up to date on events in general, as best we can. We can’t possibly get EVERY event, but you’ll see we have more then most anyone else. Recently we’ve added Event Reminders for when certain shows will be airing. For example, if an event is taped, the reminder will be for when the event airs. We do our best to maintain around 200 upcoming pro wrestling events at all times. We started with US & Canadian professional wrestling promotions but have recently been adding more events from around the world. Including all different types of entertainment events. Some days have one to three events and some have over twenty on the same day, so you may have to click the link at the bottom to see more events on a certain day. Also we recently made it possible for anyone to comment on these event pages. If you’re a fan who went to or watched any of these events, feel free to leave a comment below. * AXS TV At Home With Farm Aid Helps Raise Over 500k For Farmers” DiscussPW 2020 *
