A retired farmer in a tiny community in North Dakota has paid tribute to Prince in perhaps the most unique way a farmer can.
Gene Hanson, who always liked the song “Purple Rain,” hopped on his tractor and plowed a football field-size version of the late musician’s symbol into his corn field.
The 75-year-old says he found an image of the symbol on the Internet. He put it on his tractor’s dash and followed the pattern, then got on his airplane to check it out, adding he was shocked it turned out so well.
The tribute is only temporary. Hanson says the field was seeded yesterday.
