The Land Trust for Tennessee’s Evening of Music on the Farm with Luke Bryan
NASHVILLE, TN – Earlier this summer, a small group of landowners and supporters gathered on the lawn at The Land Trust for Tennessee’s historic Glen Leven Farm for an evening of music and celebration under the stars with special guest, Luke Bryan. The group came together to support the work of The Land Trust, protecting land important to the people of Tennessee.
The lawn off the historic home was transformed into a springtime celebration with farm tables, lanterns, and wildflower centerpieces picked from the grounds. The evening’s décor was inspired by the invitation and creative by Tenn Hens Design. As the sun set, artist Whitney Duncan welcomed the crowd with an acoustic set as dinner and a signature cocktail, provided by The Hermitage Hotel, was served.
Five-time Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan then took to the back porch of the historic home, which served as the stage for the evening. Bryan was joined by his band, for their first time back in front of a live audience in over a year. The show included hits such as “Huntin’, Fishin’ and Lovin’ Every Day,” and “One Margarita.” From the stage Bryan thanked everyone for their support of The Land Trust and spoke about his love for the land and the importance of conservation throughout the state.
“Luke is a great friend of The Land Trust and we are so grateful for his generosity,” said Liz McLaurin, President and CEO of The Land Trust for Tennessee. “Luke and his family worked with us to protect a place they love In Maury County in 2016 – so not only did he share his songs with our guests, but he also shared his passion for protecting special places for future generations.”
