Luke Bryan kicks the dust up during farm tour in Macon
More than 13,000 tickets were sold for the show. People from across the southeast packed Central City Park. When the gates opened at 5 p.m. they ran to get a spot right in front of the stage.
41NBC caught up with fans before the show who were excited to see Luke Bryan’s performance.
“I want to see him so bad. She’s my bud right there and got me tickets and I hope to God I get to see him,” Cheryl Brown said.
“You a big Luke Bryan fan?” 41NBC asked. “Pretty good. My wife is. But I am too. It’s going to be off the chain,” Quick Vandiver said.
“Big fan, big fan. Met a lot of new friends out here. Ready to get in. VIP, front stage, front and center,” Tricia Barnwell-Talbot said.
Before the show, the tour’s sponsor Bayer donated $2,000 to the Middle Georgia Community Food Bank. It was to raise awareness about the American farmer and where our food comes from.
The non-profit tells 41NBC that money will provide 16,000 meals
“Very little bit that we get is actually donated so without sponsors that we have, without people in the community donating money to us, we would not be able to feed the numbers of people that we feed,” Doug Rohme with the Middle Georgia Community Food Bank said.
The organization serves 25 counties and provides meals to 150,000 people in need.
The pharmaceutical company is also donating 11 meals to Feed America every time #Thankful4Ag is used on social media. Its goal is to provide 330,000 meals.
