NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Luke Bryan kicked off his fourth annual Farm Tour and he says it's the highlight of his year. It includes eight concerts in several southern states, including five in his home state of Georgia. The next one is scheduled tonight in Athens. Proceeds from the shows go to college scholarships for students from local farming families. Bryan says setting up speakers in a field and inviting fans to what he calls a "big old throw down" is a dream come true and helping kids go to college makes it even more special.
