Wednesday, September 25, 2013 – Luke Bryan will launch his fifth "Farm Tour 2013" next week with eight shows from Oct. 2 -12.

Special guests include Chancie Neal, Cole Swindell and the Peach Pickers - Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip.

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.

The idea for the "Farm Tour" concerts came from Bryan, a Georgia native, 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.

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.

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.
