Jack White to Headline Farm Aid 2014 Alongside Neil Young, Willie Nelson, John Mellencamp & Dave Matthews
Jack White doesn’t seem to care too much about baseball, but he does care about America’s farmers. And to show his appreciation he’s headlining this year’s Farm Aid in Raleigh, North Carolina.

And he’s fourteen years Willie’s senior.
