Once called “The poor-man’s Springsteen” he’s showed up The Boss with a lot of ACTION for the workin’ man…

Since the mid-80’s, he’s spearheaded the Farm-Aid benefit concerts along with Neil Young, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson & Dave Matthews.

Helping raise money and awareness of the plight of America’s farmers struggling to keep their livelihood AND food on our tables.

He even got Congress to approve the 4 billion dollar “Agricultural Credit Act of 1987” to help farmers save their mortgages!
