Strategically placed between What Makes You Country tour dates, Luke Bryan is leading the 10th year of his Farm Tour. After announcing six dates, Bryan revealed that his opening acts will include Chase Rice, Jon Langston, DJ Rock and the Peach Pickers, a group of three incredible country music songwriters (Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip, Dallas Davidson) who love to join forces for Bryan’s Farm Tours.
Starting in 2009, the annual Farm Tour aims to visit small agricultural communities in order to raise awareness about the lives of farming families and provide college scholarship opportunities. Normally, major tours would never make a stop to these towns, but Bryan’s team sets up a stage in the middle of rural areas to usher in the action. So far, Bryan has brought his exciting shows to over 100,000 fans and given over 50 scholarships thanks to this important tour.
In addition to raising awareness and awarding scholarships, the Farm Tour also works with their sponsor Bayer on the #HeresToTheFarmer campaign. Using the hashtag leads to Bayer donating one meal through Feeding America. Since the Farm Tour started the campaign, Bayer has donated about 2 million meals and $140,000 to local food banks and farmers in cities on the tour.
Tickets for the 2018 incarnation of the Farm Tour that concludes in Bryan’s home state of Georgia have already gone on sale to the public on his website. Those who have a Citi card can purchase Citi Private Passes and those looking for a VIP experience can snag a Harvest Time VIP pass that includes access to special restrooms, viewing areas and merchandise.
