The four-hour concert will feature performances from Nelson, Paul Simon, James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, Leon Bridges, Lyle Lovett, and more, according to a press release.
There will also be collaborations and appearances by Matthew McConaughey, Dan Rather, Renée Zellweger, Luke Wilson, Austin Mayor Steve Adler, and Houston Chief of Police Art Acevedo.

Google has said it will match the first $500,000 of donations through a pledge challenge, a release said.
The fund aims to aid in recovery with four areas of focus — health and housing; schools and child care; workforce and transportation; and capital for small businesses, according to a release.
“For us, this is personal,” Susan Dell said in a statement.
