Country music often celebrates agriculture and those who dedicate their lives to this industry and the lifestyle that comes with it. Country music singer, songwriter, and farmer Lee Brice will celebrate the tireless work of producers this summer throughout his Label Me Proud Tour with his song Farmer. The song was written as part of Case IH’s Built by Farmers initiative.
Born and raised in South Carolina, Brice pays homage to America’s dedicated producers and ranchers through his lyrics. Farmer honors the hardworking men and women who are up at dawn to work the land. With its classic country style, the humble and moving song recognizes the tough, dedicated individuals who provide food and supply raw materials to feed North America and the world. The song debuted at the 2021 Farm Progress Show Concert in Decatur, Illinois.
“I wrote Farmer to honor the families and individuals who are up before sunrise, doing the backbreaking work it takes to provide food and resources for homes all across America,” Brice said. “My goal was to spotlight one of the world’s oldest and most noble professions — a backbone that all of us rely on.”
Case IH is forged by a deep commitment and devotion to the nation’s producers. The company’s equipment and solutions meet growers’ needs during long hours in the field because the innovations are designed and made by farmers, for farmers.
“Agriculture is who we are. It’s the profession and pride of our employees and their families,” said Kurt Coffey, Case IH vice president of North America. “We know what it takes to be a farmer and work arm in arm with producers to help them fuel a growing world.”
The cross-country Label Me Proud tour will span 23 cities, and select stops throughout the tour will feature Farmer in the concert setlist.
