Willie Nelson
The lineup has been revealed for Farm Aid 2014, which will take place on September 13 in Raleigh, NC at Walnut Creek Amphitheatre. The usual suspects of Willie Nelson, Neil Young, John Mellencamp, Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds all will perform, along with Jack White, New Orleans' Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Jamey Johnson, Delta Rae, Carlene Carter and more. Tickets will go on sale to the public on Friday, August 1 at 10 a.m. ET. "In North Carolina and across the Southeast, family farmers have struggled to stay on the land, but they have also pioneered new roads to economic sustainability," said Willie Nelson in a statement. "This region knows the value of its farmers and offers increasing opportunities for new farmers to build a strong regional food system. On the Farm Aid stage Saturday, September 13, we'll celebrate family farmers and the healthy communities they're growing for all of us."

The first trailer for the movie adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey has been released, and it features an exclusive, slowed down, sultry version of "Crazy In Love" by Beyoncé, which she recorded specifically for the film. The new version came from the mind of producer Boots, who also helmed the majority of Bey's most recent, self-titled record. "Scoring films is something I've always felt like I was going to do, so I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of this," Boots told MTV News. The movie is due on Valentine's Day of 2015.

On October 7, Ozzy Osbourne will offer Memoirs of a Madman, featuring 17 of his greatest hits compiled in a single CD, two-LP set or two-LP picture disc set. Ozzy will also release the Memoirs of a Madman two-disc DVD set, which includes classic music videos, unreleased and out-of-print live performances, and interviews from his solo career. Songs included in the collection are "Crazy Train," "Bark at the Moon," "No More Tears," "Perry Mason," "I Don't Wanna Stop" and many more.

Stevie Nicks has been busy touring with Fleetwood Mac lately, but she is ready to offer a new solo LP in the fall. 24 Karat Gold — Songs from the Vault will hit stores on October 7 via Warner Bros, though vinyl collectors will be able to pick up a limited edition double-LP on September 29. 24 Karat Gold comprises songs that Nicks wrote primarily between 1969 and 1987, plus two that were penned in 1994 and 1995. In a statement, the singer explained, "Each song is a lifetime. Each song has a soul. Each song has a purpose. Each song is a love story. They represent my life behind the scenes, the secrets, the broken hearts, the broken hearted and the survivors. These songs are the memories — the 24 karat gold rings in the blue box. These songs are for you."
