Farm Progress Show 2022 welcomes a proud voice in support of agriculture and American farmers: country music singer and songwriter Lee Brice. On Aug. 31, attendees will enjoy a special concert presented by Case IH and co-sponsored by Farm Progress at this year’s show in Boone, Iowa.
Brice first performed for Farm Progress Show at the Decatur, Ill. grounds in 2021.
He has penned multiple hits, including “Farmer,” which he debuted at last year’s show in celebration of producers’ tireless work. Brice’s 2022 performance will mark the first-ever concert held at the show site in Boone.
“We’re proud to again work alongside Case IH to bring Lee Brice to Farm Progress Show,” said Don Tourte, senior vice president of sales and events with Farm Progress. “It’s a great addition following the Wednesday show’s events, and we’re excited to have this high-caliber talent perform for our first concert at the Central Iowa Farm Progress Show site.”
As a brand ambassador for Case IH, Lee Brice — and his song, “Farmer” — continues to reinforce the mission of the Case IH Built by Farmers initiative, which tells the stories of its employees and their collective farming backgrounds.
“Our partnership with Lee Brice personifies what we are all about at Case IH — we celebrate the hard-working producers whose perseverance is like no other,” said Kurt Coffey, Case IH vice president of North America. “Our work with Lee not only brings the recognition farmers deserve but also showcases the importance of the agriculture industry and its impact on every single person in North America.”
General admission tickets to the Farm Progress Show on Wednesday, Aug. 31, will include entry to the concert. The opening act, Tim Montana, starts at 5:30 p.m. CT. The Farm Progress Show will be held Tuesday, Aug. 30, through Thursday, Sept. 1, in Boone.
