(WXYZ) — Country music superstar will be playing to tens of thousands of people at Ford Field in Detroit in October, but just a month earlier, he'll be going back to his roots on his annual "Farm Tour" which will also stop in Michigan.

It's the 11th consecutive farm tour, which will be played at six different locations across the country. He sets up stages in the fields of local farmers in the states.

“The idea behind this tour is to bring full production concerts to small towns that would not see larger scale shows,” Bryan said in a release. “Growing up in rural Georgia we had to drive to larger cities to see concerts. It is so exciting to watch each of these shows being built like a small city in itself in the empty pasture land of these farms. We can feel the pride from the people in these towns as well as the farmers and it takes everyone coming together to pull them off!!”

It will launch on Sept. 26 in Marshall, Wisc. before coming to Stafford Farms in Richland, Mich. in Sept. 27. It's located northeast of Kalamazoo. Richland has a population of 751 as of the 2010 census.

As in years past, Bryan will award scholarships to farming families attending the local college or. university near the tour stop, and more than 60 scholarships have been awarded so far.

The shows happen on the farm and continue rain or shine. Tickets go on sale June 6 and start at $56 advance or $70 at the gate. Parking begins at 2 p.m. with the show starting at 6 p.m. For more information, click here.
