Luke Bryan (education on farming) OC: …roots. :34
“Anytime we can take a step to help facilitate dreams and agriculture and be smarter in how the food’s being made and being safer and stuff like that, the awareness of that can never be undermined….If I can educate some people on it and that can be my platform, I think I’ll always, the farmers out there and the people in that world will appreciate and they’ll know I’ve kinda stayed true to my roots.”
Jon Pardi (Farm Tour 2017) OC: …drive one. :47
“I’ve done a lot of tractor work, mainly big construction stuff, but I mean the farm stuff is fun. I cut hay, and we’ve leveled hay fields and stuff. I haven’t done much of the planting or anything. I tried to plant corn this year, and I sent a picture to Luke and he made fun of me, so I felt really bad. But I just don’t have time, you know, like Luke’s got a farm manager, okay, so, I don’t have a farm manager and the deer ate all my corn and I spaced ‘em too far apart, ‘cause that’s what the bag said to do. I didn’t know. I’m by myself. I thought, ‘Alright, maybe they’ll space out good.’ So, it’s good to go see where the real farmers are. See I’m doing my job on their farm. I’m taking away the everyday heavy work and they’re gonna go out and have a good time with me and Luke, and we can talk about tractors. Maybe I’ll get to drive one.”
