The “Dirt Road Diaries Tour,” which sold-out all dates in advance, along with the fifth annual eight-city “Farm Tour 2013” shows, saw Luke perform for a total of 1.3 million fans this year.

Concert review critics throughout the tour’s run credited Luke for his seasoned ability to entertain a crowd. “Bryan had this electric, youthful crowd in his palm before he started singing. The show, which sold out in a flash, was a testament to one of country’s brightest lights, a performer who’s vocal and musical chops are aligned with his star quality showmanship,” declared the Grand Rapids Press Gazette. claimed, “With this tour, Luke Bryan has clearly gone to the next level. Add this enjoyable concert to the mounting evidence that he does belong on country’s A-list.” “Charisma is definitely a word you could use to describe his bond with an audience,” said

The “Dirt Road Diaries Tour” was nationally promoted by Live Nation. Cabela’s, the World’s Foremost Outfitter of hunting, fishing and outdoor gear, was a tour sponsor while Citi was the official credit card of tour.

Luke will launch a new tour in January, “That’s My Kind of Night Tour,” with the first leg kicking off on January 16 in Columbus, Ohio at the Schottenstein Center and will perform eighteen shows through March 8 and will feature Lee Brice and Cole Swindell.
