Bryan heads for the farm

Friday, July 19, 2013 – Luke Bryan has planned his fifth annual "Farm Tour" for this October with eight southeast concerts set, including five in his home state of Georgia.

The 2013 "Farm Tour" will kick off on Oct. 2 in Statesboro, Ga. and will wrap on Oct. 12 in Valdosta, Ga.

In 2012, the "Farm Tour" played for 100,000 fans, doubling the previous year's attendance record. Eight scholarships were given to students from a farming family within the communities the tour played last year and the "Luke Bryan Farm Tour Scholarship" will continue in 2013. The "Farm Tour" 2013 concerts will be held in the following cities with locations to be announced soon:
Oct. 2 Statesboro, Georgia
Oct. 3 Athens, Georgia
Oct. 4 Columbia, South Carolina
Oct. 5 Macon, Georgia
Oct. 9 Villa Rica, Georgia
Oct. 10 Auburn, Alabama
Oct. 11 Tallahassee, Florida
Oct. 12 Valdosta, Georgia (dates & cities subject to change)

A ticket presale will begin for the fan club on Tuesday, July 23 at 10 a.m. eastern and run through Thursday, July 25 at 5 p.m. eastern. The public ticket on sale begins Friday, July 26 at 10 a.m. eastern. The Athens and Tallahassee pre/sales and on/sales will be announced at a later time.

Citi card members will have access to presale tickets beginning Tuesday, July 23 at 10 a.m. local time through Citi's Private Pass Program.

The idea for the "Farm Tour" concerts came from Bryan as a way to give back to local farming communities.

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, ...
CD review - Farm Tour...Here's to the Farmer Luke Bryan has been in that "hardware" phase of his career for the last few years. There have been several armloads of awards, many on the strength of the high-caliber singles from 2013's "Crash My Party." It might present a challenge to stay grounded. But Bryan has kept himself busy with work for charities (he's embarking on a traditional tour of farms to benefit his scholarship fund), and the use of the EP - this marks his eighth.
