Willie Nelson's 4th of July Picnic will return to the Stockyards in Fort Worth, Texas, this summer, with Bob Dylan and Los Lonely Boys on the bill. This will be the 32nd Independence day bash for Nelson, carrying on the tradition that he began in Dripping Springs, Texas, in 1973.

More than 20 additional artists will be announced, all invited personally by Nelson. Bands will perform on two stages beginning at noon; tickets go on sale April 25 and are $40 in advance, $45 day of show.

Nelson will begin a fresh round of North American touring April 27 in Santa Rosa, Calif., and has dates on tap through July 21 in Vancouver.

Today (April 12), Lost Highway releases the live album "Songs for Tsunami Relief," taped Jan. 19 at the Austin, Tx., Music Hall. The set features performances from Kelly Willis, Spoon, Alejandro Escovedo and the Dixie Chicks' Natalie Maines, among others.
