Willie Nelson announced for new Ohio music fest
CINCINNATI (AP) - Venerable country music star Willie Nelson is among the latest acts announced for a summer music festival in Cincinnati.
Buckle Up Festival organizers say Nelson, Jamey Johnson, and The Railers joined the bill. Among those announced earlier were The Band Perry, Alabama, and the Eli Young Band. An initial press release Thursday included Alison Krauss and Union Station, but a festival publicist said that announcement was premature.
The July 18-20 festival along the Ohio River in Cincinnati will feature country, folk, bluegrass and roots rock music among other genres.
The 80-year-old Nelson, whose many hits have included “On the Road Again,” ”Always on My Mind,” and “To All the Girls,” performed Sunday night at the Grammy Awards show with Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard and Blake Shelton.
