Texas crooner Leon Bridges has announced today that he has joined the lineup for an upcoming concert and rally for Beto O’Rourke, who is running for Senate in the state. The concert will also feature previously announced headliner Willie Nelson.

The concert—which will also include Texan artists Lukas & Micah Nelson, Carrie Rodriguez, Tameca Jones and Joe Ely—will take place at Auditorium Shores in downtown Austin and will be free to the public with registration.

“I am making a quick detour on my Good Thing tour to support Beto in Austin,” Bridges says in a statement. “As a Texan, this was important for me to do. I can’t wait to join Willie and perform for my home state.”
