Peanut Farming Helps Luke Beat the Summer Heat Onstage
But Luke worries about his fans: “They’re out there drinking beer all day and you just worry about their safety.”
What do peanut farming and summertime performing have in common? The answer: Outdoor temps can reach 120 degrees.
So Luke Bryan's experience working dad's farm really helps him deal with those soaring temperatures.
"For me, I love getting out there and sweatin' and workin'," he told reporters recently. "I mean, I grew up in South Georgia workin' in the heat and I love getting out there and flushing out all the old, the beer from last night out."
Luke says he's far more worried about the fans consuming today's beer.
"They're out there drinking beer all day and you just worry about their safety and them being hydrated," he says.
Oh, here's the other thing farming and performing have in common for Luke: He's gonna play eight Southern dates in 10 days on his fourth annual Farm Tour. More good news for Luke and his fans—that tour doesn't start until October, so it should be much cooler.
