On this day in 1992 Willie Nelson staged his fifth Farm Aid Concert in Irving, Texas and 40,000 fans showed up. Farm Aid was put together to help the American farmer keep his land. The first Farm Aid Concert was in 1985, when a lot of farmers in the nation were losing their land. Willie stepped up to help out along with friends John Mellenkamp and Neil Young.

 

These Farm Aid concerts showcased a cross section of music and entertainers. At Farm Aid V there were folks like Mary Chapin Carpentar, The Kentucky Headhunters, Ricky Van Shelton and Paul Simon.

So far, Farm Aid, which is a non-profit organization, has raised more that $39 million to help keep family farmers on their land.
