A sad day for the music world.

He may not have had a household name, but Bert Jansch was an incredibly influential guitarist who has passed away of lung cancer at 67-years-old.

Willie Nelson Wants YOU To Buy Local Produce

willie nelson hosts benefit show to promote local produce and support of US farmers

Willie Nelson wants YOU to buy local produce, in an effort to support U.S. farmers.

To celebrate the 25th anniversary of Farm Aid, a charity Nelson co-founded with John Mellencamp and Neil Young, the trio hosted a benefit show in Milwaukee. They used stage time to encourage their audience to go local.

Here's what Nelson said to the concertgoers:

"We should be interested in knowing where our food comes from. If it comes from soil that is organic, that is grown by our family farmers, we know that it's more healthy than the food grown by big corporations that saturate the soil with chemicals and pesticides and fertilisers."

"Thank you for those farmers who are doing their part, doing organic farming, and who need our support. That's why we're here, 25 years in a row."

Eating local, healthy produce is certainly a smart, safe bet.

We're right there with you, Willie!
