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.
Remaining "Farm Tour" Shows: are:
Oct. 5 Statesboro, GA Longneedle Farm
Oct. 6 Valdosta, GA Coffee Weed Plantation
Oct. 7 Carrollton, GA VFW Fairgrounds
