Luke Bryan Uses Farm Tour to Aid South Carolina Flood Victims
Luke Bryan is using the final date on his 2015 Farm Tour to help out a worthwhile cause. The Georgia native and his Farm Tour sponsors are joining forces to raise money for those affected by the recent devastating flooding in South Carolina.
One sponsor, Red Gold Tomatoes, has already pledged a donation of $20,000, which will go to the Harvest Hope Food Bank in Columbia, S.C. Other sponsors pledging their support include Bayer, Cabela’s, CMS Nashville, Miller Lite, ATG, Citibank, Bad Boy Buggies and Red Gold’s can suppliers, Ball Corp. Fans who would like to make a donation may do so at the YouCaring website set up for this cause.
Bryan was forced to postpone his Columbia Farm Tour date twice due to the flooding. The show was originally scheduled on Oct. 3, then moved to Oct. 11, at which time the treacherous weather still remained an issue. The singer remained undeterred and found a new venue -- Colt Creek Farm in Pelion, S.C. -- and the show will finally take place on Sunday (Nov. 1).
“This has certainly been our most challenging year, but it’s also been our biggest …,” Bryan says of his 2015 Farm Tour. “The fun thing about [Farm Tour] is that there is no complacency because it throws you curve balls every year. It keeps everybody on their toes.”
Bryan will wrap up his 2015 Kick the Dust Up Tour on Friday (Oct. 30) in Detroit, Mich. Following his South Carolina show, Bryan will return to Nashville, where he will perform at the 2015 CMA Awards. The "Strip It Down" singer, who recently celebrated his 14th No. 1 hit with the song, is nominated for two CMA Awards this year, for Entertainer of the Year and Male Vocalist of the Year.
