Luke Bryan played three sold-out Kill The Lights Tour dates over the weekend, including one in Phoenix, Arizona at the AK Chin Pavilion and two Los Angeles area concerts at the Forum and the Irvine Meadows Amphitheatre.

The tour will resume this weekend (Sept. 30 and Oct. 1) with a double-play in Salt Lake City at the USANA Amphitheatre and concludes the end of October with two stadium dates—AT&T Stadium in Dallas and Ford Field in Detroit—as the tour wraps October 29.

On Sept. 23 Bryan released his first-ever Farm Tour EP, Farm Tour…Here’s To The Farmer. The music was produced by Jeff Stevens and Jody Stevens and is in advance of his eighth annual Bayer Presents Farm Tour 2016 set to run Oct. 5 to Oct. 15. The tour also features Chris Janson, Jon Langston, The Peach Pickers, and Granger Smith.

For his second consecutive sold-out night at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado, Dierks Bentley offered fans his biggest hits and one-time-only performances including surprise guest and friends The Travelin’ McCourys.

“We have a lot of stuff going on tonight that doesn’t happen anywhere else,” Bentley told the crowd. “Red Rocks brings everyone together…you can’t treat this like any other show. Besides having all my fans, friends and family here, right now is a full circle moment for me. After moving to Nashville to play country music, I walked into the Station Inn and saw these guys singing George Jones, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard songs—but they were playing Dobros, fiddles, banjos and mandolins. It was because of them that I found a foundation to build my music on. I had to bring them out tonight…the one and only The Travelin’ McCourys! Let’s make Red Rocks ring with some bluegrass music!”

Bentley welcomed The Travelin’ McCourys for renditions of Kris Kristofferson’s “Bottle To The Bottom,” Bentley’s own “Settle For A Slowdown,” and Avicci’s “Wake Me Up.” Closing out the evening, Bentley brought out band, crew, family, friends as well as tourmates Randy Houser and Tucker Beathard to take the stage and ended the night with The Travelin’ McCourys transitioning “Drunk On a Plane” into Del McCoury Band’s “Baltimore Jonny.”
