Luke Bryan's fourth annual Farm Tour will begin this October, hitting eight southern cities within just ten days. (See the list of tour dates below.) Though the platinum-selling singer is used to playing packed stadiums in huge cities, he still credits the small town shows with some of his favorite career memories.

"We just want to have a little fun in the fall, and I think what's cool about the Farm Tour is when we continue to go to places like Claxton (Georgia) and Valdosta (Georgia)," says the Georgia-born superstar. "These things are a big event for these towns, and I love the fact that people can come out and have a big time, listen to some music. It's a fun experience all the way around. I want to continue to do what I can to keep it rockin'."

In the same spirit as Willie Nelson's annual FarmAid, Luke started his Farm Tour as a way to give back to local farming communities. Proceeds from the trek will go to a scholarship for a lucky student from a farming family.

Luke's travel plans for 2013 include another headlining tour. The "Drunk on You" singer says he's being very hands-on in the creative decisions for the upcoming trek, trying to make it a unique experience for fans.
