Georgia Southern Alumnus Luke Bryan to Return to Area for Farm Tour Concert
Georgia Southern University alumnus and Capitol Records Nashville recording artist Luke Bryan will return to the area as part of his Farm Tour concert series. A portion of the proceeds from the concert will benefit Georgia Southern scholarships.
The concert will be held Wednesday, Oct. 5 at Longneedle Farm on LJ Road in Claxton. Tickets may be purchased at the University Store on the Georgia Southern campus (www.gsustore.com) or online at www.lukebryan.com/farmtour. This marks the third year that Bryan has played a concert to benefit scholarships for Georgia Southern students.
“We have such a blast at these shows,” says Bryan. “We look forward to bringing music into some of these areas where concert tours can’t get to. There’s nothing like building a tour set in the middle of a crop field!”
Bryan, who graduated from Georgia Southern in 1999 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration, came up with the idea for the Farm Tour concerts 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. This year’s Farm Tour presenting sponsor is DEKALB.
Bryan’s recently released tailgates & tanlines CD is the follow up to his gold-certified album Doin’ My Thing, which produced three back-to-back number one singles — “Do I,” “Rain Is A Good Thing” and “Someone Else Calling You Baby.”
