Country superstar Luke Bryan finished up his annual Farm Tour in Michigan yesterday. The singer sent out a message to all the fans and sponsors who made the tour happen.
The country star made stops to farms and fields in Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Michigan. The tour helps celebrate the farmers who feed us every day, while also raising money for hungry families in need.
“Another amazing Farm Tour has wrapped! Thanks to everyone who helped put these shows on and to all the fans for coming out! We love ya #FarmTour2021 #HeresToTheFarmer,” Luke Bryan tweeted earlier today. He also posted the picture to Instagram, which features fellow stars Dylan Scott, The Peach Pickers, Whitney Duncan, and DJ Rock.
Midwestern fans swarmed the fields for Bryan’s performances for the first time since 2019. Based on this recap video Bryan posted earlier this week, they seemed to be having the time of their lives.
In the video, we see several fans tailgating and playing cornhole next to their trucks. The video also showcases clips of Bryan’s performance on stage, jamming out as audiences dance. And that was just showing the first week of the tour.
The second week undoubtedly went just as well. Bryan even tweeted that last night’s show in Michigan completely sold out, with no will call tickets available.
Why Does Luke Bryan Perform in a Farm Tour Every Year?
Before the tour started, Luke Bryan posted an update that explained why he throws a Farm Tour every year. Though he started the tours back in 2009, he teamed up with life sciences company Bayer in 2015 to help even more farmers than he already was.
“Hey y’all – I’m teaming up with my buddies at @BayerUS again this year to thank our American farmers and feed hungry families. For every tweet that uses #HerestotheFarmer, Bayer will donate a meal through Feeding America,” Bryan tweeted. He also included a link to a press release from Bayer.
The press release explains how Bayer’s partnership with Luke Bryan supports the company’s commitment to “Health for All, Hunger for None.” They’re aiming to donate one million meals, one for every person who shares the hashtag #HerestotheFarmer on social media.
Luke Bryan became interested in helping farmers and highlighting their achievements because his own father was a peanut farmer from Georgia.
“I know the important role farmers play in our everyday lives and understand the hard work it takes for them to help feed America and the world,” Bryan said. “That’s why I’m excited to have this partnership with my friends at Bayer and be able to thank the American farmers for all the hard work they do.”
