Reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan had the opportunity to meet his doppelganger and it was made entirely of BACON! 

The superstar kicked off his 2021 Farm Tour at Statz Bros. Farm in Marshall, WI on Thursday (Sept. 9) and to celebrate, Farm Tour partner Farmland created a bust comprised of 50 pounds of bacon to look just like the Georgia native.

Standing two feet tall, the bacon bust was presented to Bryan in celebration of the first of six Farm Tour dates. 

This year’s Farm Tour features Bryan with special guests Dylan Scott, Whitney Duncan, The Peach Pickers (Rhett Akins, Dallas Davidson and Ben Hayslip) and DJ Rock.
