John Deere Plans Free Concert

Deere & Co. has announced further commitment to Farm Rescue, a nonprofit partner, by hosting a virtual country music benefit on Dec. 9 at 8 p.m. EST. Since its inception in 2005, Farm Rescue has helped hundred of farmers suffering from major illness, injury or natural disaster to plant, hay or harvest their crop.

Farm Rescue does just what its name implies. When a farmer faces unforeseen crisis, the organization and its volunteers step in to help farmers get their crops planted or harvested, ensuring food on tables across the country, and the livelihood of that family. Farm Rescue’s mission is more important today than ever.

“The impact of COVID-19 has been felt by everyone throughout the country and around the world. Farmers are no exception,” says Bill Gross, President and Founder of Farm Rescue, which provides the necessary farm equipment and volunteer the manpower to farmers in need. “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 Farm Must Go On by John Deere virtual benefit concert, open to the general public will honor how innovative, industrious, and resilient farmers are—a side most have never seen—while shining a spotlight on all that they do for our country.

The experience will broadcast live from Brooklyn Bowl in Nashville featuring a musical lineup of Dustin Lynch, Maddie & Tae, Mickey Guyton, Travis Denning and Tyler Farr. It will be live streamed on Youtube, at no cost to viewers. Donations are encouraged.
