Agriculture is the backbone of this nation.




From Music City to the Magic City of the Plains, country music is part of the fabric of rural America. With its simplicity and honesty, it connects by telling real, authentic stories.


The story of the American farmer is woven in the same way. Whether it’s the tale of a plentiful harvest, the story of a neighbor coming to save the day, or of a rough season’s hardships, every farmer’s story tells the truth of a life well lived.


In celebration of National Farmer’s Day, AgAmerica is partnering with AgAmbassador Whiskey Jam to shine a light on the people, places, and music at the heart of our nation.


We invite you to share your soundtrack and tell us your story.

Farming is the backbone of our nation. American farmers play a key role in supporting our nation’s food security, rural economy, and labor force. By 2050 the world will need 70 percent more food. Farmers, though resilient, bear a disproportionate share of the global food security burden.

Through the AgAmbassador Program, AgAmerica is playing an active role in the solution by bridging the gap between brands and rural communities across the U.S. to build a network that is vital to the future of American agriculture.
