The festival will be June 6-7 with a pre-festival party on June 5.

Jamey Johnson, Whiskey Myers, Blackberry Smoke, Margo Price, Randy Rogers Band, Shooter Jennings and Parker McCollum are on the roster as well to play the festival.

The line-up also includes Stoney Larue, Jack Ingram, Hayes Carll William Clark Green, Cody Canada & The Departed, Paul Cauthen, Flatland Cavalry, The Band of Heathens, Shane Smith & The Saints, Bottle Rockets, Mike and The Moonpies, Zach Bryan, Elizabeth Cook, Kendell Marvel, Tim Montana and Jonathan Tyler & The Northern Lights.

Born & Raised Music Festival came to life with an idea to celebrate Outlaw, Texas and Red Dirt country music. To us, there is no better place to have it than deep in the heart of Oklahoma, the birthplace of Red Dirt," said Festival Producer Mike DuCharme of AEG Presents. "These genres are showing a resurgence right now on the music scene. People want to celebrate their roots and listen to music that reminds them where they were born and raised. When looking to kick off year one of this event we could think of nobody better than Willie Nelson and Hank Williams Jr. to headline each day."

Presale passes for Born & Raised will be available beginning Wednesday, Feb. 12.

CD review - My Way Not one to rest on his laurels, Willie Nelson's second studio release of the calendar year finds the artist dipping back into the Great American Songbook.

So, it is only fitting that he now pays tribute to the man widely recognized as the ...
