LINCOLN, Neb. (KOLN) - More than 12,000 people are coming out to attend the first night of Luke Bryan's Farm Tour on Benes Farm just southwest of Lincoln.

"We've got hundreds of people running around making hot dogs, onion rings, the beer people are here, the water people are here, it's all kind of like ants running around here putting it all together," said Bryan's best friend Trey Britt.

Bob Benes, the owner of the farm said he's thrilled to have one of the biggest names in country music perform on his land. He said he prepared for the event for more than a year.

"Instead of planting corn we had to plant alfalfa, we had to change our crop rotations so we would have a place to have it," said Benes.

He also has plenty of people on hand to ensure everyone stays in line.

"They have a command center set up with ambulances and firefighters, the sheriff's department has a comman center set up as well, looking out for everybody's safety," he said.
