Tickets go on sale for concerts on Friday, March 11.

Sam Hunt will kick off the first weekend of the fair on Friday, Aug. 12. He is a multi-platinum-selling artist. Hunt’s sophomore album SOUTHSIDE debuted to critical acclaim and was one of the top country albums of 2020 landing at number one on the Billboard country albums chart.

Sunday, August 14 the best-selling duo in country music history, Brooks & Dunn, will take the stage. Brooks & Dunn have 23 career chart-toppers and have sold 30 million albums over a career that has spanned over three decades. 

TLC and Shaggy will perform Wednesday, Aug. 17. TLC is the best-selling American girl group of all time. They have won four Grammys.

Shaggy, two-time Grammy winner for Best Reggae album, saw massive success with his viral hit, "Banana" with fellow Jamaican artist, Conkarah which amassed over 2 billion streams and spawned over 50 million Tik Tok videos with over 5 billion video views for the #bananadrop challenge.
