Luke Bryan will once again pay tribute to his peanut farming roots by taking some small town detours this fall. The country superstar's sixth annual Farm Tour starts October 1st in Knoxville, Tennessee, hitting a handful of smaller Southeastern cities before wrapping October 11th in Macon, Georgia. A portion of the proceeds from the annual trek will go to college scholarships for teens in farming families along the tour's route.
"I love pulling into these towns and seeing a big open field, and then 10 hours later standing up on that stage and looking out at thousands of people having the times of their lives. It is truly mind blowing," says Bryan, who grew up on a farm in Leesburg, Georgia.
Last year, Bryan performed for more than 115,000 fans in eight towns — a Farm Tour record. So while the cities are smaller, the audiences are almost as big as those on his giant, stadium-hopping That's My Kind of Night Tour.
Tickets for the Farm Tour 2014 go on sale August 1st, with presale tickets for the singer's fan club going up for grabs today (July 29th). Click here for tickets and more information.
