Gary Clark Jr.’s 2019 album, “This Land,” contains some of his most overtly political work to date. The title track is a fiery outcry that takes a scorched earth approach to exorcising the demons of our country’s racist past that continue to haunt African Americans today.

Clark’s artistic activism continues with a headline appearance at a Voices for Justice concert at ACL Live on Feb. 6.

Outspoken country music trio the Dixie Chicks will make a special appearance at the show.

Proceeds from the show will benefit Proclaim Justice Inc., an Austin nonprofit that investigates and attempts to exonerate wrongly convicted prisoners.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Nov. 15.
