If you’re anything like us, you’d agree that pretty much anything Luke Bryan offers up quickly becomes a favorite. His songs are fun, relatable and incredibly catchy. Bryan’s charismatic personality certainly adds to that appeal. With 7 successful years of his much-anticipated Farm Tour in the books, Bryan is preparing for his 8th annual event, sure to be bigger and better than ever. In addition to the 8 shows planned, Bryan recently released his first Farm Tour EP, Here’s To The Farmer, available on iTunes now. The 5-track project will not only thrill fans who always look forward to new music from this superstar, it will also remind you of some of Bryan’s earlier work – the very music that made his fans and followers fall in love with him in the first place.
For those who are familiar with his early albums, the title track may have you reminiscing of “What Country Is” from Bryan’s 2009 album, Doin’ My Thing. The premise of the song is just as the title would suggest – an ode to the hardworking men & women who keep such a big portion of this country running, the farmers. It’s fitting, as well, because the song also touches on the family members who support and love those folks and they’re not lost on Bryan’s heart. The Farm Tour donates a portion of ticket sales to the Luke Bryan Farm Tour Scholarships, which benefits children from farming families in the communities he performs in. Not only can fans be guaranteed a great show by purchasing a Farm Tour ticket, they can know that they’re doing something good to help others.
Whether you’re born & raised in the country or a lifetime city slicker, Bryan’s charm has a way of making you wish you were in the middle of nowhere, staring up at a sky full of stars. “Love Me In A Field” is one of many songs in his catalog that will do just that. “You Look Like Rain” does the same, but slows things down with a smooth melody and romantic lyrics. This one is sure to be a fan favorite and while many of Bryan’s biggest hits have been uptempo, party songs, we can see this one finding a home at the top of the charts.
Female listeners will certainly fall for “Southern Gentleman”. The promise of manners, romance, and falling in love in a Southern setting make this song an easy listen. “I Do All My Dreamin’ There” will definitely connect with fans along Bryan’s Farm Tour stops. Getting out of town, in a spot that no one knows about, to get away, get your head together, and maybe even get a little lucky, is something that will resonate with audiences who live the country lifestyle, day in & day out.
