Carlos Santana, Willie Nelson, and Michelle Branch will headline next month's Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo. The Dec. 11 concert will pay tribute to former President Jimmy Carter, who is being honored this year for his "untiring effort" to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts and to advance democracy and human rights.

Film stars Anthony Hopkins and Jessica Lange will be the masters of ceremony for the concert, taking place the day after Carter receives the peace prize. Presentation of the award will be marked by a solemn ceremony at Oslo City Hall and a torchlight parade in Carter's honor on Dec. 10.

Destiny's Child, Paul McCartney, Wyclef Jean, Natalie Imbruglia, Youssou N'Dour, a-ha, and Russell Watson were among the artists who appeared at last year's event, which honored United Secretary General Kofi Annan.
