CAPITOL RECORDS/NASHVILLE artist LUKE BRYAN wrapped a four-city concert tour, SEPTEMBER 28th to OCTOBER 1st, in his home state of GEORGIA this past FRIDAY (10/1). LUKE’s “Farm Tour” performed for nearly 16,000 fans in VALDOSTA, CLAXTON, CARROLLTON and MACON, GA.
Local schools in all four towns will receive a “LUKE BRYAN Farm Tour Scholarship,” which will be given to a student from a farming family who is in financial need. Those colleges include VALDOSTA STATE UNIVERSITY, GEORGIA SOUTHERN UNIVERSITY (LUKE's alma mater), THE UNIVERSITY OF WEST GEORGIA and MERCER UNIVERSITY in MACON.
COUNTRY WEEKLY will feature the behind the scenes sights of LUKE on the “Farm Tour” as they launch the feature “On The Road,” a photo essay spread by photographer CHRIS HOLLO. LUKE’s “On The Road” feature will be in the OCTOBER 25th issue, on stand OCTOBER 18th.
The idea for the “Farm Tour” concerts came from BRYAN as a way to give back to local farming communities by celebrating and lifting up the AMERICAN Farmer and offering a fun escape with the outdoor shows. For more on LUKE BRYAN, visit www.lukebryan.com.
