2013 CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee Luke Bryan wrapped his fifth Farm Tour over the weekend, performing for 115,000 fans during the course of the eight-city run. Eight local colleges–one in each city that the Farm Tour visited–will receive a Luke Bryan Farm Tour Scholarship, which will be given to a student from a farming family within each community.
Those colleges include:
Statesboro, Ga. – Georgia Southern University
Athens, Ga.- University of Georgia
Columbia, S.C. – University of South Carolina
Macon, Ga.- Mercer University
Villa Rica, Ga.- University of West Georgia
Auburn, Ala.- Auburn University
Tallahassee, Fla.- Florida State University
Valdosta, Ga. – Valdosta State University
The idea for the Farm Tour concerts was conceived as a way to give back to local farming communities, by celebrating American farmers and offering a fun escape with the outdoor shows. Farm Tour 2013 was sponsored by BMI, Cabela’s, Harveys Supermarket, Miller Lite and Texaco.
