In 2012, the "Farm Tour" played for 100,000 fans, doubling the previous year's attendance record. Eight scholarships were given to students from a farming family within the communities the tour played last year. The idea for the "Farm Tour" concerts came from Bryan, a Georgia native, as a way to give back to local farming communities by celebrating and lifting up the American Farmer and offering a fun escape with the outdoor shows.
