Luke Bryan could be playing at a farmhouse near you as he announces his 2009 Farm Tour!
Luke Bryan has just announced his first Farm Tour show on October 5 in Statesboro, Georgia. The concept for this tour came from Bryan as his way to give back to local farming communities. These special one-off shows will continue throughout Bryan’s career with additional dates already planned for 2010. Further details on these Farm Tour shows will be announced at a later time. GAC’s Top 20 will film their show on site in Statesboro.
“Being from a rural farming community, the Farm Tour is something I have envisioned for a very long time,” says Bryan. “I love the thought of setting up on a farm and building our own little world, starting small and growing it each time. We can never do enough to bring awareness to the hard working farmers of this country.”
The October 5 Farm Tour concert will be held at Hurricane Plantation in Claxton, Georgia, just outside of Statesboro, with proceeds going to a scholarship fund for students at Georgia Southern University, where Luke Bryan graduated from. Tickets are available online Thursday, September 10 at lukebryan.com and also hard tickets available September 12 at Harry’s BBQ & Seafood in Hagan, GA. Great American Country will film the Top 20 Countdown Show from the show.
The first-ever Farm Tour show is also the kick-off for Bryan’s Doin’ My Thing album launch where he plans to head to multiple cities in a two week timeframe to meet his fans and play new music. Doin’ My Thing is due in stores October 6.Country Music Photo Gallery
