Luke Bryan Awards 50 College Scholarships With Ticket Proceeds from “Farm Tour”
October 13, 2016
Two-time reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan will wrap his “Bayer Presents Luke Bryan Farm Tour 2016” this Saturday and a portion of the proceeds from the eight year run will bring his total of awarded college scholarships to 50. The “Luke Bryan Farm Tour Scholarship” is granted to a local college student from a farming family within the communities the tour has played.
The tour resumed in Batesville, Mississippi last night, the first concert back since his collar bone surgery over the weekend to repair a break from a mountain bike accident. The ever-positive Luke upheld ‘the show must go on’ attitude not missing a beat and continued with the remaining three shows scheduled last week. Fans unable to attend a farm tour show were able to tune-in for a livestream on Luke’s Facebook page last Friday from Greenback, Tennessee. Sounds Like Nashville was along for that show too.
