Zac Brown may question the legitimacy of Luke Bryan's country lifestyle/song-style, but Bryan has made sure to give back to the rural background that he occasionally references in his music. The country star will embark on his fifth annual "Farm Tour" on October 2.

The yearly event consists of a series of shows that raise money for the Luke Bryan Farm Tour Scholarship. A student from a farming family in each community where a concert takes place receives said scholarship. This year's tour consists of eight dates around the South, including a whopping five in Bryan's home state of Georgia. You can check out the full schedule at the bottom of the page. Be warned however: The dates in Columbia, SC and Macon, GA have already sold out.
Last year the tour attracted somewhere in the neighborhood of 100,000 attendees, more than double what Bryan attracted during his third run. Considering that his new album "Crash My Party" topped the Billboard 200 for two weeks and has remained in the Top 10 for six weeks, it stands to reason that this year's "Farm Tour" will bring even bigger crowds. Brown can say what he will about "That's My Kind of Night," but he can't complain when Bryan is literally doing it for the kids.
The opening acts will include Chancie Neal, Cole Swindell and songwriting trio the Peach Pickers.
