Luke Bryan is set to bring his Farm Tour 2011 to the Campus Beach and Recreation Center at Clemson University at 7 p.m. Sept. 29. The tour, now in its third season, typically plays in open fields on farms across the South. But in Clemson, the best spot to play is at the Campus Beach.
Bryan, an award-winning country singer-songwriter from Georgia, has had many chart-topping hits, including “Rain is a Good Thing” and “All My Friends Say.” His latest single, “Country Girl (Shake it for Me),” is the first from his new album, “Tailgates & Tanlines,” which was released in August. The album has risen to the No. 1 spot on the country music charts and No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
The idea for the Farm Tour concerts came from Bryan as a way to give back to local farming communities by celebrating and lifting up American farmers and offering a fun escape with outdoor shows. Proceeds from the Farm Tour are used for scholarships in rural communities.
“Clemson worked with Bryan’s management to adapt the tour to play at a campus venue. Clemson’s connection to the fans and ties to agriculture made this a good fit,” said Littlejohn Coliseum general manager Zachary Kerns. “The outdoor festival feel, including food vendors and sponsors, will add to the fun.”
The event is open to the public, and parking is free. Tickets are on sale at the Hendrix Student Center box office and on TicketMaster.com, or call Zach Kerns at (864) 656-5006 or email: email@example.com, or Angela Nixon at (864) 656-0382, or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
The Campus Beach and Recreation Area is located at Lake Hartwell, off of S.C. 93 at the site of the YMCA.
