Bryan heads back to the farm
Monday, August 9, 2010
– Luke Bryan will embark on a second Farm Tour run of shows in his home state of Georgia in late September. The idea for the Farm Tour concerts came from Bryan as a way to give back to local farming communities by celebrating the American Farmer.
Proceeds from the concerts will go to charities in the farming communities. Deltapine is the official sponsor of the 2010 Farm Tour.
The Farm Tour shows will be held at the Coffee Weed Plantation in Valdosta on Sept. 28, the Hurricane Branch Plantation in Statesboro on Sept. 29, the VFW Fairgrounds in Carrollton on Sept. 30 and on Oct. 1 at Luther Williams Field in Macon.
"I come from an area just like those we have chosen to perform in," said Bryan. "I grew up working on my father's peanut farm and know how hard these farmers work. We hope to give them a chance to take a break and enjoy themselves with a night of music."
Farm Tour tickets will be available starting today at www.lukebryan.com

After all, we might need a diversion from the international health crisis now and then. The release opens with "Knockin' Boots," which is how modern cowboys describe sexual intercourse. A few songs later, Bryan gives us the drinking song (and single) "One Margarita." In between, "What ...
Luke Bryan aims to please often, and that rarely goes unpunished. The Georgia native has a strong voice, some songwriting skill and even legitimate farming cred. But Bryan still gets pegged as the face of corporate country - that pandering beast packaging artists for mass consumption. The label can be unfair, but not wholly undeserved - Bryan has a long track record, for instance, of records about chasing girls and Bud Lights. In truth, he married his college sweetheart and they share a quiet, ...
