Eric Church, Sam Hunt, Elle King and Lyle Lovett will all pay musical tributes to Willie Nelson as the LBJ Foundation gives the iconic artist its highest honor, the LBJ Liberty & Justice for All Award, at a gala Friday, May 12, at the LBJ Presidential Library in Austin TX.

Net proceeds from the gala will benefit the newly established Willie Nelson Endowment for Uplifting Rural Communities at the LBJ School of Public Affairs, a part of The University of Texas at Austin.

The Willie Nelson Endowment will fund research and student fellowships focused on sustainable agriculture, eliminating hunger, resilient energy, sustainable water and natural disaster recovery to benefit rural communities.
