The Doobie Brothers have just signed on to play Joe Walsh's third annual fundraising event, VetsAid 2019. The 2020 Rock Hall inductees join previously announced headliners ZZ Top, Sheryl Crow, Brad Paisley, and Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit. The artists will join Wash on November 10th, 2019, on the eve of Veterans Day, at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas.

Walsh launched his national 501(c)3 non-profit veterans organization on September 20th, 2017 with an inaugural concert at Fairfax, Virginia's EagleBank Arena. The second annual concert event, which took place on Veterans Day (November 11th) 2018 at Tacoma, Washington's Tacoma Dome, featured Walsh, fellow Eagle Don Henley, brother-in-law Ringo Starr, James Taylor, Chris Stapleton, and Haim.

Walsh, who grew up part of a Gold Star family, said in the press release for the 2019 event: "It's about time we brought VetsAid down to Texas . . . This is a night where all are welcome to celebrate the things that unite us as Americans: good friends, open hearts, and great music!"

Joe Walsh explained that the money raised at VetsAid would be going to support the grassroots veterans organizations that are struggling to provide across the board quality care for our former servicemen and women: "I hope we can do it every year, to all the help. . . let's say it turns into something where we can really make a difference and help the smaller organizations. Those are the people that I really care about; the smaller organizations in counties and towns that are helping vets, because they're in the trenches. And they don't have any budget and just to keep them going is huge."
