(CBS News) Country singer Kenny Chesney has joined the lineup for this year's Farm Aid concert on Sept. 22 at Hersheypark Stadium in Hershey, Pa.

He joins a bill that already includes Farm Aid staples Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp and Dave Matthews, along with Jack Johnson, Pegi Young & the Survivors and Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real.

"Growing up in a small town outside Knoxville, family farmers were a big part of our community," said Chesney, who hails from Luttrell, Tenn. "I am proud to play on the Farm Aid stage again, especially in Central Pennsylvania, where agriculture is at the heart of the community."

The annual concert raises funds to support Farm Aid's work with family farmers and also aims to inspire people to choose family-farm food.

The Farm Aid show is just one of many stops for Chesney this year. He's currently on the road with dates lined up through September.

Try this link to the Southern Indiana Center for the Arts. This is the only place I know.

I believe the Tennessee State Museum was selling them during John's exhibition there, they may still be selling them.
