Bryan visits the farms (again)

Friday, August 12, 2011 – Luke Bryan released his new CD "tailgates & tanlines" this week, and that means the Farm Tour is back. He announced today today that his Farm Tour will continue for a third consecutive year with six shows in late September and early October.

The shows start in Clemson, S.C. on Sept. 29 and wrap Oct. 7 in Carrollton, Ga. Farm Tour tickets will be available starting today at and through the local areas retail outlets soon. DEKALB is the presenting sponsor.

"We have such a blast at these shows," said Bryan. "We look forward to bringing music into some of these areas where concert tours can't get to. There's nothing like building a tour set in the middle of a crop field."

The idea for the Farm Tour concerts came from Bryan as a way to give back to local farming communities by celebrating and lifting up the American Farmer and offering a fun escape with the outdoor shows. Proceeds from the concerts will be made available as a scholarship for a student from a farming family attending a local college in each community where the shows are taking place.

Bryan is currently on Tim McGraw's "Emotional Traffic Tour" and will headline CMT ON TOUR: Luke Bryan- Tailgates & Tanlines kicking off Sept. 14.

Farm Tour Shows:

Sept. 29 Clemson, SC Clemson University

Sept. 30 Athens, GA Tucker Plantation

Oct. 1 Macon, GA Luther Williams Field

Oct. 5 Statesboro, GA Longneedle Farm

Oct. 6 Valdosta, GA Coffee Weed Plantation

Oct. 7 Carrollton, GA VFW Fairgrounds

The Deluxe edition of his seventh album "Born Here, Live Here, Die Here" was born out of the pandemic tour stoppage. It includes six new songs and increases the run time to 54 minutes. The original 10 tracks are mostly in the vein of the pop laced chart toppers "One Margarita" and "Knockin' Boots." With writing ...
CD review - Born Here, Live Here, Die Here After taking in Luke Bryan's "Born Here Live Here Die Here," the listener will never guess this full length was released during a pandemic. Maybe that's a good thing. 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 ...
CD review - What Makes You Country 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, ...
