Luke Bryan Heads Back to the ‘Farm’
Next month, Luke Bryan will embark on his second Farm Tour in his home state of Georgia.
The Farm Tour concept came to Luke as he thought of ways to give back to the local farming communities. He wished to celebrate what they do by offering them an outdoor show as his way of saying thanks. Proceeds from the concerts will go to charities in the farming communities.
Luke grew up the son of a farmer and knows the importance of their job. His upbringing also helped inspire his recent chart-topping hit, 'Rain Is a Good Thing.' "That always kind of set the tone for the mood in my household, whether we had rain coming in or not," Luke tells The Boot. "If it rained, we knew the crops would be good, and it was going to be a good day or a good week around the Bryan household!"
Watch Luke perform 'Rain Is a Good Thing' live in our studio here.
Luke's Farm Tour kicks off September 28 at the Coffee Weed Plantation in Valdosta, followed by the Hurricane Branch Plantation in Statesboro on September 29, the VFW Fairgrounds in Carrollton on September 30, and the Luther Williams Field in Macon on October 1.
"I come from an area just like those we have chosen to perform in," Luke says. "I grew up working on my father's peanut farm and know how hard these farmers work. We hope to give them a chance to take a break and enjoy themselves with a night of music."
Farm Tour tickets are available now through Luke's website.
