Luke Bryan, whose two young sons have several years to go before they're ready for college, has nevertheless been supporting students with his annual Farm Tour since 2009. The reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year has announced dates for the eighth annual trek, which visits eight states from October 5th to October 15th. A portion of the ticket proceeds are granted for the Luke Bryan Farm Tour Scholarships, which aid students from a farming family within the communities the tour plays. The multi-platinum-selling performer played to more than 110,000 fans during the 2015 edition of the annual road trip.
Bryan, whose past Spring Break tours have generated several EPs and a Number One album, will also release his first-ever Farm Tour-related EP this fall. Bryan's most recent LP, the million-selling Kill the Lights, was released in August 2015, and shared its name with his most recent tour.
A ticket presale for Bryan's Fan Club, the Nut House, as well as Citi cardholders, begins June 21st at 10:00 a.m. local time for all shows. Tickets for the general public go on sale beginning June 24th.
