“Some rappers, it’s like, you’re not actually hood,” the host begins. “Like, are there some country people that are not actually country? Like they’ll just throw on their hunter’s jackets, take a photo, then take the jacket off?”

“I can unequivocally say, without a shadow of a doubt, that if you sing about hunting and fishing and drinking and trucks and [expletive], and I get you on my farm, in one minute I can tell if you’re a poser,” Luke Bryan said. “Or if you’re not legit. I can hand you a fishing rod…”

“The farm test!” the host replied.

The 46-year-old Georgia native has always had a deep appreciation of farms. Each year, he has a ‘Farm Tour’ to show his appreciation for America’s farmers. In a recent Instagram post, he took a moment to expound on what the tour is all about.

“As we get ready for year 13 of Farm Tour, I want to talk just a second, about the reason behind it all, honoring our farmers,” he said. “Me and my friends at Bayer, Kroger and Feeding America don’t believe in thankless work, which is why we come together every year to celebrate everything farmers do for us and to pay it forward.”

He added that each time you thank a farmer with the hashtag #HerestotheFarmer, the organizations involved will donate a meal to a family in need through Feeding America. The initiative will donate up to one million meals.
