Kenny Chesney added to Farm Aid bill in Hershey

Apparently, we can't get enough Kenny Chesney around here. The cowboy-hatted country beach bum played Lincoln Financial Field with Tim McGraw in June on their Brothers of the Sun tour, then came back and did a free Jonathan Demme-directed YouTube show on the beach in Wildwood a few days later.

Now, Chesney has been added to the bill for Farm Aid at Hersheypark Stadium on Sept. 22, as the principal marquee attraction in addition to the formidable foursome of Neil Young, Willie Nelson, Dave Matthews an John Mellencamp, who play the benefit every year. Chesney' new album, Welcome To The Fishbowl, hit #1 upon release last month.

Tickets are available for Farm Aid, which was founded in 1985 and returns to the area after playing Camden in 2008, at LiveNation.com.
