Law enforcement in Sangamon County is gearing up for Luke Bryan’s concert on Friday after a late venue change due to rain. The concert was originally scheduled to be held at the Ayers Family Farm in Edinburg, Illinois, a small town in Christian County. It is now moved to the Illinois State Fairgrounds.
