Luke Bryan is a busy man these days, what with his new ‘Tailgates and Tanlines’ album, the end of his tour with Tim McGraw, and a headlining spot on the CMT on Tour extravaganza — but he isn’t too busy to continue his annual Farm Tour.
And six lucky college students are about to be very thankful for that.
Bryan’s Farm Tour, now heading into its third year, is a unique six-city jaunt whose proceeds go to a very worthy cause: community college scholarships benefiting a student in each town. It’s the kind of thing that can make a lifetime’s worth of difference to the winners, but for Bryan, it’s just another day at the office.
“We just want to have a little fun in the fall,” Bryan says. “I think what’s cool about the Farm Tour is these things are a big event for these towns. I just love the fact that people can come out and have a big time, listen to some music. It’s a fun experience all the way around. I want to do what I can to keep it rocking.”
Speaking about the tour’s southern run, he adds, “We look forward to bringing music into some of these areas where concert tours can’t get to. There’s nothing like building a tour set in the middle of a crop field.”
