Willie Nelson’s going “On the Road Again” — with many special guests!

On Tuesday, the country music legend, 90, announced his annual Outlaw Music Festival Tour is back again this summer and he revealed the headliners include his Family band, Bob Dylan, Robert Plant & Allison Krause and John Mellencamp.

At select dates, they’ll also be joined by country star Brittney Spencer, soul singer Celisse and five-piece Memphis band Southern Avenue, as well as Bluegrass artist Billy Strings at one special show.

This year’s Outlaw Music Festival kicks off on June 21 in Alpharetta, Georgia, and continues throughout the summer before wrapping up on Sept. 17 in Buffalo, New York. The Grammy winner and his A-list lineup of musicians will play a total of 25 shows, primarily at amphitheaters throughout North America.

Celisse will appear at the first run of shows, then pass off the support slate to Spencer, and Southern Avenue will help to close out the tour. Strings will make an appearance at just the show outside of Seattle in George, Washington, where he’ll open in addition to Spencer.

The musicians join an impressive list of past Outlaw Music Festival performers, as stars such as Tyler Childers, Eric Church, Luke Combs, Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt, Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Neil Young and many others have joined the tour since its 2016 inception.

Nelson shared a statement in a press release to express his excitement regarding the forthcoming concerts. “This year's Outlaw Music Festival Tour promises to be the biggest and best yet with this lineup of legendary artists. I am thrilled to get back on the road again with my family and friends playing the music we love for the fans we love," the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer said.

Dylan, 82, notably previously joined the “Always On My Mind” singer on several dates of his 2017 tour, but this year marks their first extended run together. The two icons will link up after they both set out on their own solo headlining tours this spring.
