– 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 www.lukebryan.com/farmtour 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.
