Luke Bryan is about to release a Farm Tour EP before he heads out on his eight annual Farm Tour, but his love and support of the agricultural lifestyle is more than surface deep.
The country star is making sure his own family understands the value of hard work.
"We did a big sweet corn patch this summer and the boys will hop on the John Deere Gator and ride down and pick some corn," Bryan told PEOPLE about his sons, Bo, 8, and Tate, 6. He is also raising his 14-year-old nephew, Til.
It is important for him that they know where their food comes from.
"To be able to take your boys and go from the process of picking the corn and getting it ready to boil and then having sweet corn, it helps them understand where things come from," he shared.
It is the same reason he does the Farm Tour.
"Our country tends to forget every time we sit down and eat that people are out there working hard to keep us fed," Bryan said of his decision to honor those who grow our food.
His project will raise money to give scholarships to children from farm families. By working with Feeding America they also provide meals for needy families.
The goal of the outreach program is to raise awareness and give back.
"We want people to know we're not just in there to make money," Bryan explained. "We want to leave a lasting impression."
