“Luke Bryan is the top country entertainer and is already coming to our area at Great American Ball Park June 16,” K99.1 FM New Country Mornings host Nancy Wilson said. “His farm tours are infamous for their rustic, down-home, in-your-face, close-to-fans feel. The fact that Luke is bringing this right in the Miami Valley’s own backyard is huge.”
More than 100,000 fans have attended the annual tour since 2009.
Bryan — a judge on “American Idol” — awards college scholarships to students from farming families attending local colleges or universities near the tour stops.
More than 50 scholarships have been given out.
