Luke Bryan has announced the dates and locations for his 2014 Farm Tour.

The trek will launch in Knoxville, Tenn. on Oct. 1, and continue for a total of eight dates before wrapping up in Macon, Ga. on Oct. 11.

Unlike Bryan's current That's My Kind of Night Tour -- which is playing the biggest venues in the country, including stadiums -- the Farm Tour, which is now in its sixth year, plays a series of rural venues, with a portion of the proceeds going toward college scholarships for local students from farming families in the communities the tour plays.

Last year's Farm Tour performed to more than 115,000 people in eight cities, setting a new record.

The Farm Tour ticket pre-sale will begin for Bryan’s fan club, the Nut House, on July 29 at 10AM local time for Knoxville, Gainesville, Auburn and Statesboro. The public on sale for those shows begins at 10AM on Aug. 1.

The Nut House ticket pre-sale for Macon, Columbia, Athens and Tallahassee will launch on Aug. 5 at 10AM local time, with the public on sale beginning at 10AM local time on Aug. 8.

There will also be a special Harvest Time VIP Experience available for the 2014 Farm Tour, which will include a general admission ticket that comes with an exclusive VIP viewing area with premium view of the stage, a parking pass, access to VIP only restrooms, limited edition Farm Tour poster, private cash bar and more. More information is available via Bryan's VIP partner, CID Entertainment.
