Rolling Stone has announced that a multitude of amazing Country, Americana and other artists will come together in Nashville next month to honor the one and only Bob Dylan for his 75th birthday.
Similar to the nationwide Petty Fest shows that have honored the music of Tom Petty over the last decade, Dylan Fest: Nashville will feature the Cabin Down Below Band — a New York City-based lineup of professional sidemen, producers and music industry vets — and a rotating crop of guest singers. The lineup includes Kacey Musgraves, Brothers Osborne, Jason Isbell, Emmylou Harris, Boz Scaggs, Wynonna Judd, original Nashville Cat Charlie McCoy, Nikki Lane, the Civil Wars’ John Paul White, Holly Williams and Robert Ellis. Dylan Fest will look far beyond the country community for its vocalists, too, with everyone from Kesha to Heart’s Ann Wilson also scheduled to take the stage.
Tickets start at $45 and top out at $59.50, with profits going to the Tennessee-based Thistle Farms, a non-profit organization that employs, houses and advocates for women who’ve survived prostitution, human trafficking and substance abuse.
