Lenexa, Kan., (Sept. 16, 2021) — Viewers tuning into Farm Journal’s #FarmON™ Benefit Concert at 7 p.m. CDT on Monday, Sept. 20, will not only hear some of today’s top voices in country music but can also show their support for FFA and the work they do to develop leaders in agriculture.

The hour-long concert is headlined by Easton Corbin, three-time American Country Music Award winner, and will also feature Alex Miller, who competed on American Idol season 19.

“We are excited to provide this unique concert experience as a thank you to farmers, ranchers and everyone who keeps our food system moving forward,” said Charlene Finck, president of Farm Journal. “What’s even more exciting is this concert features performers who have direct ties to FFA, which makes it personal to them as they team with us to support the National FFA Foundation.”
