NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Last week, his friend and fellow country star Jason Aldean announced he was doing a some gigs at baseball stadiums this summer.

Now, Luke Bryan taking things up a notch — by doing three shows at football stadiums as part of his “That’s My Kinda Night” tour.

The shows will be in Pittsburgh in June — and in Philadelphia and Chicago in August.

Few acts these days have the drawing power to fill a stadium. But there’s been a growing trend for country acts to sell out stadiums in the right markets.

Bryan says he’s happy to follow stars like Kenny Chesney, Tim McGraw and Taylor Swift who have done stadium shows.

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
