Recording Star Bryan to Fund Scholarship

Monday, September 27, 2010

Country music star Luke Bryan has announced that a portion of the proceeds from his concert on Thursday, Sept. 30 in Carrollton will fund an annual scholarship for a University of West Georgia student who comes from a farming family in Georgia.

Bryan is on a Farm Tour of concerts in his home state of Georgia that aims to give back to local farming communities by celebrating and uplifting the American farmer. The tour’s stop in Carrollton on Sept. 30 will be at the VFW Post on Bankhead Highway at 7:30 p.m. 

“I come from an area just like those we have chosen to perform in,” said Bryan, a Capitol Records Nashville artist. “I grew up working on my father’s peanut farm and know how hard these farmers work. We hope to give them a chance to take a break and enjoy themselves with a night of music.”

Bryan’s latest album, “Doin’ My Thing,” has enjoyed success with hits such as “Do I,” and “Rain is a Good Thing.” He was recently named the Academy of Country Music’s top new artist and top new solo vocalist, as voted by fans.

Farm tour tickets are available at www.lukebryan.com and through local retail outlets.
