Mellencamp Aims To Bring Farm Aid 2014 To Durham

Rocker John Mellencamp's son Hud is currently enrolled at Duke University in Durham, NC; where he is a member of the school's football team. Papa John recently escorted his son to Atlanta for the Chick-fil-A Bowl and at the game Mellencamp dropped a bit of intriguing news to Durham's Herald Sun.

Mellencamp, an organizer of the annual Farm Aid concerts along with Dave Matthews, Willie Nelson and Neil Young, told the paper that he's planning to bring Farm Aid 2014 to Durham:

“The good news is we’re bringing Farm Aid to Durham,” the 2008 Rock and Roll Hall of Famer said.

John Mellencamp said details have yet to be worked out. A venue on Duke’s campus, perhaps Wallace Wade Stadium, is a possible site. Farm Aid, starring Willie Nelson, Neil Young and Dave Matthews, was held in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., last summer.

Farm Aid is usually held each September. It has never been held in North Carolina.
