I was hearing a faint voice in the distance... "If You Build It, They Will Come." Sure it isn't a ball diamond in a cornfield.  This is heaven for country fans as Luke Bryan's Farm Tour got underway tonight in Wisconsin. What a great way to see a show... The tour hits Baltimore, OH (southeast of Columbus) next Friday the 17th.

Don't you think, it would be a law of averages?  I have watched videos of what looked like 5 year olds belting out perfect lyrics and playing perfect notes...   This 17 year old really sounds like she could be on the next duet with Dustin Lynch...Click Here to Watch. Not that I wish anyone to bomb on stage, by any means. …
