Luke Bryan is making an impact on Illinois State University students. 

Luke Bryan has talked extensively about growing up on his father's farm in Georgia. Farming made up a huge part of his life and his family's... in fact, Luke almost didn't go to Nashville to pursue a career in music at all. After his brother's death, Luke felt he needed to stay on the farm and help out his dad. His dad didn't feel the same however and ultimately gave Luke an ultimatum: leave to pursue his dream or get fired. 

Luke's life story is now coming full circle as he gives back to the profession he essentially grew up in, agriculture. Four Illinois University students benefitted from Luke Bryan's Tour Scholarship at Illinois State University. All of the recipients and an ISU faculty member will attend Luke's tour stop in Pesotum, IL on September 28th. The group will also go backstage to meet Luke & discuss the impact of his scholarship.
