Dan McCarthy makes a great point:
The late September Harvest The Hope concert would have sold every last ticket without a single Nebraska act on the billing. Willie Nelson and Neil Young were enough to do that. To include McCarthy, Jack Hotel, Jim Pipher, Matt Cox and many more of our state’s musicians (from the Stopping The Pipeline Rocks album), was to galvanize the feeling that the fight against Keystone XL was a fight happening on the ground in Nebraska. They would be a central part of a unified voice that included activists, ranchers, tribal leaders and politicians.
