Luke Bryan is headed back to the farm. The reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year has announced the dates for his Fifth Annual Farm Tour, which will take place over the course of eight dates in October.

According to a press release, Bryan first conceptualized the Farm Tour "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."

The 2012 Farm Tour played in front of 100,000 fans, doubling the previous year's attendance. The tour awarded eight scholarships last year to students from farming families in the rural communities in which Bryan performed. The Luke Bryan Farm Tour Scholarship will continue this year.

A ticket pre-sale will begin for Bryan's fan club on Tuesday, July 23 at 10AM ET and run through Thursday, July 25 at 5PM ET. Public tickets go on sale Friday, July 26 at 10AM ET. The Athens and Tallahassee pre-sales and on-sales will be announced at a later time.

Citi card members will have access to pre-sale tickets beginning Tuesday, July 23 at 10AM local time through Citi’s Private Pass Program. For complete pre-sale details, visit www.citiprivatepass.com.
