Luke Bryan announced that this fall, he will make his way to five local farms for his 14th headlining Farm Tour.

Taking to social media to share the news, he wrote, “It’s my favorite time of year. #FarmTour2023 will kick off in September. I can’t wait to get back in the fields, up close to the fans and honoring our American farmer.”

From September 14-23, the five-time Entertainer of the Year will set up stages in the fields of farms in Shelbyville, KY, Millersport, OH, Colfax, IA, Brooklyn, WI, Eyota, MN. Special guests will be announced at a later time.

“One of the reasons we created these Farm Tour shows – to bring the big-city tour to the people,” Bryan explained in a press release. “These nights are one-of-a-kind and we really enjoy getting to know the farmers and their families, love the whole atmosphere of playing on these incredible farms and watching entire communities come together and get excited about these shows.”

Since he first began this trek around small towns in 2009, Bryan has found various ways to give back to these communities that reflect the one that raised him in Leesburg, G.A

To help reach his goals, Bryan has once again partnered with Bayer, a “one of the world’s leading life sciences companies.” Since 2015, Bayer has joined the Farm Tour as a sponsor to help honor America’s farmers for providing us with access to critical health and nutrition through its #HerestotheFarmer campaign. The campaign asks fans to join in by using #HerestotheFarmer on their social media platforms from now through November 30, 2023. For every share using the hashtag during this time period, Bayer will donate 1 million meals to people in need through Feeding America®.

Since the partnership’s inception, 6 million meals have been donated and more than $180,000 has gone to Feeding America member food banks and local farmers at each of the tour cities.

Another way the “Prayin’ In A Deer Stand” singer gives back is by granting college scholarships to students from farming families to their local college or university near the tour stops. Since the tour first began, Bryan has given out 78 scholarships.

Over the years event sponsors have donated money, food and resources to the local communities and also nationally. Last year alone, Bayer provided one million meals to Feeding America®, Farmland® donated a truckload of protein to local foodbanks in each of the states that hosted the tour and also donated $9,000 to each state’s FFA Association, and Fendt donated $25,000 to the national FFA organization.

Tickets for the FARM TOUR are on sale May 4 at 10AM local time at LukeBryan.com. Presale tickets for Luke’s Fan Club (the Nut House) and fan App are available beginning May 1 at LukeBryan.com/all-access-pass. Citi is the official card of FARM TOUR.

Sponsored by Bayer, Farmland, Fendt, and Citi, Farm Tour 2023 will take place during a break from Bryan’s Country On Tour, which is set to launch June 15. This summer run named after his chart-topping hit will visit 36 cities across the U.S. with stops in major markets like Philadelphia, Denver, Nashville, Orlando, Charlotte, Raleigh, and more. 

Chayce Beckham, Tyler Braden, Ashley Cooke, Jackson Dean, Jon Langston, Conner Smith, Alana Springsteen, and Hailey Whitters will join Bryan on the run alongside DJ Rock. 

Additionally, Bryan is currently in the midst of his sixth season on American Idol. Season 21 of Idol premiered February 19, 2023 with returning judges, Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. 

“It’s flown by,” Bryan revealed of his time on the show. “It’s been a real amazing journey.”
