Tour Continues in Statesboro, Georgia Tomorrow
Nashville - (October 4, 2011) – Capitol Records Nashville artist Luke Bryan performed the first three of six shows over the weekend on his third-annual “Farm Tour” playing in front of 19,000 fans. The tour continues tomorrow for its final 3 shows in Statesboro, Valdosta and Carrollton, Georgia. GAC: Great American Country and Storme Warren will be on hand in Statesboro filming for “Top 20” and “Headline Country.” GAC Top 20 will air on Friday, Oct 14.
Bryan will then resume his headline tour, CMT ON TOUR: Luke Bryan Tailgates & Tanlines, on Friday, Oct 13 in Johnson City, Tennessee
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. Proceeds from the concerts will be made available as a scholarship for a student from a farming family attending a local college in each community where the shows are taking place.
Remaining “Farm Tour” Shows:
10-5 Statesboro, GA Longneedle Farm
10-6 Valdosta, GA Coffee Weed Plantation
10-7 Carrollton, GA VFW Fairgrounds
