“The farm tour is like the cherry on top of an already amazing year,” says Bryan.  I love pulling into these towns and seeing a big open field and then 10 hours later standing up on that stage and looking
out at thousands of people having the times of their lives! It is truly mind blowing.”
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 go to a scholarship for a student from a farming family attending the local college. “Farm Tour” 2012 was sponsored by COUNTRYFinancial®, Harveys Supermarkets, BMI, GAC and Carl Black Chevrolet.
