There are few country musicians in the 21st century who have enjoyed the sort of success that Luke Bryan has found. Bryan is considered by many country music fans to be part of the so-called "Bro Country" movement of recent years that has seen male artists dominate the field. Bryan has enjoyed one of the quickest rises to fame since coming on the scene in 2004.
Born to a humble peanut farmer in Leesburg, Georgia, Bryan began his country career as a songwriter. During the early days of his career he wrote songs for other country musicians, including Travis Tritt and Billy Currington. In fact, he was a co-writer on Currington's single "Good Directions," a song which eventually landed on the top of the Hot Country Songs chart in 2007.
Each of Bryan's albums have produced singles that have reached the top ten, including several number one singles as his popularity increased. His Southern charm and laid back lyrics made Luke Bryan tickets an instant hit, and following the release of his debut album (I'll Stay Me) he hit the tour circuit as a headlining artist. Fans and industry critics were immediately receptive to his style and songs. Just three years after the release of his debut album, in 2010, Bryan won Top New Solo Artist and Top New Artist from the Academy of Country Music Awards, as well as Breakthrough Video of the Year from the CMT Music Awards.
Country music fans have proven over the decades to throw massive parties at the concert venues of their favorite artists. Fans that purchased Luke Bryan tickets in droves for a concert stop in Pittsburgh in June 2014 brought negative attention to the city after leaving a sizeable mess behind after the concert. Local news stories focused on the "garbage city" left behind at Heinz Field, drawing the ire of the city's mayor and bringing attention to the heavy drinking and general behavior of fans attending country music concerts.
Currently, Luke Bryan tickets are on sale for the That's My Kinda Night Tour. During the months of July, August, and September the tour will be slowly snaking across the eastern United States and Canada. The tour has numerous stops scheduled in New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Ontario, and Ohio. Later this year, Luke Bryan tickets will be on sale for tour stops on the West Coast. Tour stops include venues in Sacramento, Mountain View, and Concord, California, as well as Phoenix, Arizona.
The sale of Luke Bryan tickets doesn't always serve to line the pockets of tour organizers and record producers. The Farm Tour 2014 will be the sixth annual tour designed to support local farming communities across America. As part of the tour, colleges in the local communities that host tour stops receive a Luke Bryan Farm Tour Scholarship for a student from a farming family to attend college. Last year's recipient schools included Georgia Southern University, University of Georgia, University of South Carolina, and Valdosta State University, to name a few.
