MERLE HAGGARD, RAY PRICE, DAVID ALLAN COE and KRIS KRISTOFFERSON are among the stars who will be joining country legend WILLIE NELSON for his annual Fourth of July Picnic in Texas.

Nelson, who held the festival outside of Austin last year (03), has opted to hold this year's (04) daylong event at the Fort Worth Stockyards, a 27 acre (10.9 hectare) concert field dubbed the North Forty.

Nelson says, "Fort Worth is one of my old hometowns. I've played all of the beer joints here."

Organisers expect approximately 25,000 people to attend.

Nelson's Fourth of July Picnic tradition began in Dripping Springs in 1973 and has since been moved to a host of towns around Texas.
