Country music singer Willie Nelson (search) will be on the road again - this time holding concerts to help raise money for Democrat Dennis Kucinich (search)'s presidential bid.

Nelson announced Wednesday that he was endorsing Kucinich, saying the Ohio congressman has a history of standing up for heartland Americans who are overlooked and rarely heard.

"A Kucinich administration will put the interests of America's family farmers, consumers and environment above the greed of industrial agribusiness," Nelson said. "I will be doing all I can to raise his profile with voters."

Kucinich faces eight Democrats in the presidential primary.
