Bryan announces 10th Farm Tour
Tuesday, May 29, 2018
– Luke Bryan will once again honor the American farmer this fall as his 10th annual Farm Tour will be held from Sept. 27-Oct. 6.
Bryan will play six shows from from Ohio to Florida setting up stages in the fields of local farmers across those states. More than 100,000 fans have attended the tour each year since its inception in 2009. Bryan will continue giving back to the farmers by awarding college scholarships to students from farming families who are attending the local college or university near the tour stops. To date, more than 50 scholarships have been granted.
Tickets go on sale June 6 at 10 a.m. local time at www.lukebryan.com/FarmTour. Presale tickets for Bryan's Fan Club (the Nut House), Bryan's official App and Citi cardmembers at www.CitiPrivatePass.com begin June 1 at 10 a.m. local time.
"I can't believe we've been doing this 10 years," said Bryan. "Our goal was to bring big-city production concerts into these small towns across the U.S. giving those communities the opportunity to attend shows that would never come their way."
Tour dates are:
Sept. 27 Irwin, OH Springfork Farms
Sept. 28 Pesotum, IL Atkins Farm
Sept. 29 Boone, IA Ziel Farm
Oct. 4 Archer, FL Whitehurst Cattle Company
Oct. 5 North Augusta, SC Misty Morning Farms
Oct. 6 Ringgold, GA Doug Yates Farms

A few songs later, Bryan gives us the drinking song (and single) "One Margarita." In between, "What ...
Luke Bryan aims to please often, and that rarely goes unpunished. The Georgia native has a strong voice, some songwriting skill and even legitimate farming cred. But Bryan still gets pegged as the face of corporate country - that pandering beast packaging artists for mass consumption. The label can be unfair, but not wholly undeserved - Bryan has a long track record, for instance, of records about chasing girls and Bud Lights.

Luke Bryan has been in that "hardware" phase of his career for the last few years. There have been several armloads of awards, many on the strength of the high-caliber singles from 2013's "Crash My Party." It might present a challenge to stay grounded.
