Luke Bryan’s Sitting at Number-1 for Second Week as His Farm Tour Kicks-Off

Congrats to Luke Bryan – his song “Waves” is at number-one for the second week in a row.

Luke says that right from the first time he heard the track, he knew it would be a big hit, “‘Waves’ is a song about kids falling in love during the summer and just all the images and everything about just how beautiful that summer love is and how the emotions just keep coming in waves. ‘Waves’ is kind of a play on words, and I fell in love with the song the second I heard it.”

Luke is topping the country chart as he his getting ready to launch his Farm Tour 2021 tomorrow night in Marshall, WI on the Statz Bros. Farm

While all of his performances are special to him…the Farm Tour stops mean just a bit more because of the close connection they have to Luke’s life.

He shares, “To say it’s been 12 years of Farm Tour is pretty miraculous. I mean, it’s been something that’s been very special to us. I can’t remember the stats, but I think we’ve fed, we’ve done six million meals to hungry families over the life; it may be even more, and to partner with these farmers to come on their fields to allow fans to come to a rural setting and watch Farm Tour is always very charming and humbling to me. I mean farming is such a special part of who I am and my background.”

Luke adds, “Anytime I can bring awareness to the challenges that farmers have and the ups and downs, and we get to do all that with the Farm Tour – we get to give scholarships out, we get to help a lot of people and we get to have a lot of fun too.”

Fans are sure to hear this one on Luke’s Farm Tour 2021, and also when his Proud To Be Right Here tour resumes in a few weeks…

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
