CINCINNATI — Venerable country music star Willie Nelson is among the latest acts announced for a summer music festival in Cincinnati.

Organizers of the new Buckle Up Festival say Nelson, Jamey Johnson, The Railers and Alison Krauss and Union Station featuring Ohio native Jerry Douglas are now on the bill. Among those announced earlier were The Band Perry, Alabama, and the Eli Young Band.

The July 18-20 festival along the Ohio River in Cincinnati will feature country, folk, bluegrass and roots rock music among other genres.

The 80-year-old Nelson, whose many hits have included “On the Road Again,” ‘’Always on My Mind,” and “To All the Girls,” performed Sunday night at the Grammy Awards show with Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard and Blake Shelton.
