As concerts begin to get announced at our local and state fairs, summer 2022 will just keep getting better and better.

From the fried dough to the rides to the agricultural exhibits, nothing beats a summer day at our local and state fairs. Add a little Country music to the mix, and they get even better.

Amidst what has already been a slew of amazing Country concert announcements over the last several weeks it is hard to fathom we will see an influx of more great shows. And it is starting to happen with our first big Country announcement for the state's biggest fair.

He is fresh off of co-hosting the ACM Awards with Dolly Parton and won the CMA Horizon Award this past fall for the best new artists. And now will bring his fun and infectious energy for a performance at the New York State Fair running August 24th to September 5th.
