Chevrolet announced at the 2016 Country Music Association Festival (CMA Fest), that it is expanding its country music ties by teaming up with the reigning CMA Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan.
Bryan will work with Chevrolet as a brand ambassador on a variety of projects over the next three years including his participation during this year’s CMA Music Festival.
"Chevy has been a part of our family and a part of our work life on the farm for as long as I can remember.” said Luke Bryan. “If you were a Bryan, you drove a Chevy. I am so excited about this partnership and I'm honored to be representing such a wonderful brand.”
Chevrolet will also be a sponsor of Bryan’s Farm Tour. The 8th Annual Farm Tour is a multi-city tour in which Bryan makes stops in rural areas of the country, sets up stages on farmland and performs for thousands of fans. A portion of ticket proceeds are granted for local college scholarships (“Luke Bryan Farm Tour Scholarship”) to students from a farming family within the communities the tour plays.
“Partnering with Luke Bryan is a natural fit for Chevrolet,” said Paul Edwards, Chevrolet U.S. vice president of marketing. “Our customers love country music, and Chevy has always held a special place within the genre.”
Earlier this year, using his broad reach on social media, Bryan helped Chevrolet use the extra 24-hours of Leap Day to #DayItForward by recognizing the daily hard work and sacrifice of the firefighters of Firestation #2 in Franklin, Tenn.
“We’re proud to build a relationship with an artist as authentic and talented as Luke.” said Edwards.
