November 1, 2019
Bayer’s #HeresToTheFarmer Campaign Donates Four Million Meals
Nashville – November 1, 2019 – Luke Bryan played his final Farm Tour 2019 concert Wednesday night in Missouri where the Kansas City Star claimed Luke is a “kinetic performer” whose “enthusiasm was contagious.” In total all six shows took place after two were rescheduled and/or moved indoors due to inclement weather. Even as the Farm Tour 2019 concerts were in the middle of his “Sunset Repeat Tour,” time spent in the recording studio, releasing a new single, playing the Grand Ole Opry, performing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and a full taping schedule for American Idol this month, Luke was committed to ensuring that all the Farm Tour concerts happened for his fans.
“These Farm Tour shows can be a challenge at times when the weather doesn’t cooperate, but it never surprises me how our fans continue to support them like they do,” said Luke. “The truth is these shows mean so much to me to get to honor the American farmer and then to donate meals on top of that to those in need makes them even more rewarding. We had to find a way to make these happen no matter what!”
Farm Tour sponsor Bayer continued their #HeresToTheFarmer campaign which has donated four million meals across the U.S. in the last few years. Visit Bayer.us/en/HeresToTheFarmer to learn more.
The eleventh annual FARM TOUR featured Cole Swindell, Mitchell Tenpenny, LoCash, the Peach Pickers (Rhett Akins, Ben Hayslip, Dallas Davidson) and DJ Rock during the run. More than 100,000 fans came out again this year and since its 2009 inception Luke continues to give back to farmers by awarding college scholarships to students from farming families who are attending local colleges or universities near the tour stops. To date, 76 scholarships have been granted.
The tour was sponsored by Bayer, Sweet Leaf Tea, TRACKER OFF ROAD, Citi and Monster Energy. Citi was the official presale credit card and CID Entertainment offered Harvest Time VIP Experiences.
