Jamey Johnson Added To New York State Fair Free Show Lineup
Live Country music will be back in a big way at this summer's Great New York State Fair.
Fresh off the news that the Great New York State Fair would be operating at 100 percent capacity August 20th through September 6th, they have added ANOTHER great country show to their Chevy Music Festival lineup. One of our favorite modern outlaws Jamey Johnson will take a stage to be announced on Tuesday, August 31st at 7 p.m. Jamey joins an already stellar lineup that includes Brothers Osborne, LOCASH, Russell Dickerson, Uncle Kracker, and the Oak Ridge Boys. Not to mention great acts across all musical genres like Train, Foreigner, 98 Degrees, Nas, Cold War Kids, and more.
The fair will now be offering an impressive 27 free concerts, which are included in your $3 fair admission. With the announcement they will operate at 100 percent capacity and today's lifting of most COVID restrictions, you have to imagine this year's fair is going to be crowded and rocking. It is crazy to think about where we were at this time last year as far as the pandemic. We were scratching and clawing for just the tiniest bit of live music. Now, the floodgates are completely open and we have a full list of amazing shows to check out in Upstate New York in the months ahead. I would imagine it is only going to get busier as local venues and concert promoters look to make up for the lost time. Which is great news for live music fans!
