Luke Bryan is continuing his tradition of giving back to local farmers across America.
The country music superstar and American Idol judge has officially announced the dates and locations for his 11th annual Farm Tour, sponsored by Bayer, Sweet Leaf Tea, Bass Pro Shops, Citi and Monster Energy. The six-date trek will make stops at never-before played farms in five states, including Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Kansas and Oklahoma between Sept. 26-Oct.5. For the concerts, Bryan, who grew up on a peanut farm, will perform on stages set up in harvest fields.
“The idea behind this tour is to bring full production concerts to small towns that would not see larger scale shows,” Bryan said in a statement. “Growing up in rural Georgia we had to drive to larger cities to see concerts. It is so exciting to watch each of these shows being built like a small city in itself in the empty pasture land of these farms. We can feel the pride from the people in these towns as well as the farmers and it takes everyone coming together to pull them off!”
Since its inception in 2009, Bryan’s Farm Tour has assisted farmers and their families by raising money to help fund college scholarships for degree-seeking students from in each community the tour visits. To date, more than 60 scholarships have been handed out.
This year’s brief run is scheduled to take place in the midst of Bryan’s Sunset Repeat Tour, which goes through mid-October. Tickets for the trek go on sale June 6 beginning at 10 a.m. local time. Presale tickets for members of Bryan’s fan club (the Nut House) and official app go on sale on June 3. Supporting acts for the 2019 Farm Tour have yet to be announced.
