After having to cancel last year’s Farm Tour concert series due to the coronavirus pandemic, Luke Bryan has announced that the Farm Tour will once again take place for 2021! The Farm Tour is a unique experience compared to other concerts since it takes place in an open, recently harvested field and celebrates farmers all across the country. Plus, with backing from Bayer, there’s an opportunity to help support those who are food insecure.
Growing up on a farm in Georgia, Bryan has always shown respect and admiration for farmers and ranchers. The Farm Tour, which is now its 12th year, has provided many opportunities for the host community. Growing up in a rural background, Bryan knows what it is like to struggle and work hard for what you earn.
This year, the Farm Tour will stop at six farms in the Midwest from September 9 to 18. Of those six farms, five farms have never been played at before. The Farm Tour raises money for scholarships for students who want to attend college and provide more for their family business. To date, more than 60 scholarships have been granted.
Bayer will again partner with Bryan to help fight hunger across the United States through the hashtag #HerestotheFarmer. For every share of that hashtag across social media, Bayer will provide one meal to a person in need through Feeding America, with the goal of helping to provide 1 million meals.

In an updated announcement on Aug. 16, we also learned that Dylan Scott, Whitney Duncan, The Peach Pickers, and DJ Rock will round out the concert lineups, with Bryan, of course, as the headliner at each stop.
“I think I am more excited about this year’s FARM TOUR than any other year,” Bryan said in a statement. “Growing up in a farming family in rural Georgia I know how hard farming can be even on a good year, and how hard those families work- from sun-up to sundown. After the challenges we have all faced in the last year with so many people losing their jobs, struggling to put food on their tables, food supply chains jeopardized, grocery stores struggling to keep food on the shelves in some areas, it is so apparent to me, and I hope everyone, why our farmers are truly the backbone of our country. They never stopped providing for all of us. Ever. It’s time to thank our farmers, once again. It’s going to mean even more to me this year.”
