NASHVILLE – (October 17, 2016) Two-Time CMA and ACM Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan wrapped his eight annual “Farm Tour” this weekend performing for 105,000 fans in the seven-city run. A total of 50 scholarships have been granted from ticket sale proceeds to a local college student from a farming family within the communities the tour plays.
Luke recently shared with the Associated Press, “I spent the majority of my life thinking I would work in agriculture…[but] I think I picked the right profession.” “Farming is pretty brutal, but you know it’s also a very fulfilling life. I could have farmed the rest of my life and really had a fun, happy enjoyable life.”
Luke’s first-ever Farm Tour EP, Farm Tour…Here’s To The Farmer is available digitally now. The “Bayer Presents Luke Bryan Farm Tour 2016” was sponsored by Bayer, Chevy, Green Giant, Miller Life, Cabela’s and Polaris.
