The New York State fair has bolstered an already impressive lineup with another free concert starring Russell Dickerson.

At the rate he's going, he may want to get a place in the Syracuse area. The Great New York State Fair has announced they are adding another free concert (with fair admission) to their Chevy Park stage lineup starring Russell on Wednesday, August 25th. This will not be Russell's only stop in the Syracuse area as he is also scheduled to open for Florida Georgia Line at St. Joseph's Ampitheater at Lakeview Saturday, October 9th. So that is now 2 opportunities to see Russell sing his hits "Yours," "Blue Tacoma," and more.

This year's event will also feature free Country shows starring Brothers Osborne (Sunday, August 22nd) and The Oak Ridge Boys (Tuesday, August 31st). The full lineup is also impressive, featuring acts like Train, 98 Degrees, Foreigner, and many more. This year's New York State Fair runs August 20th through September 6th and you can see the full lineup of concerts at the fair here.

Now the big question that remains is will some of our local fairs have Country shows? We always tend to get some great Country artists performing at our Capital Region fairs and with everything springing up elsewhere around the state, you have to feel good about some of our area fairs eventually announcing a few Country concerts with Nashville acts. And if that doesn't happen, at the very least our great local Country bands will keep the line tunes rocking!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.
