Jason Aldean will take the stage on Friday, July 28. With his seventh album, They Don’t Know, Aldean continues to lead the way, advancing the sound and style that helped define today’s country music. With his first release since 2014’s Old Boots, New Dirt – which debuted at Number One on the Billboard album chart—the reigning Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year returns with some of his hits like “Amarillo Sky” and “A Little More Summertime.”
Thomas Rhett will bring his show to the Grandstand on Wednesday, July 26. As Thomas Rhett continues “pushing up against Country’s music boundaries”, his platinum certified sophomore release Tangled Up follows the same path earning critical applause. The album has produced three chart-toppers including “Die a Happy Man”, “Crash and Burn”, and “T-Shirt.” Thomas Rhett was also recently chosen as one of five of CMT’s Artists of the Year.
Little Big Town will open up the fair on Friday, July 21.

Brothers Osborne is set to rock the Fair on Sunday, July 23rd. Two sons from a working class family, John and TJ Osborne grew up in a small, Maryland water town writing and playing songs for friends and family. The singer/songwriter siblings recently won “Vocal Duo of the Year” at the 50th CMA Awards. Brothers Osborne’s debut album Pawn Shop was released on January 15 and features the grammy-nominated, No.1 smash hit “Stay A Little Longer”.
Lonestar will take the stage Thursday, July 27. Known for merging their country roots with strong melodies and rich vocals, Lonestar has achieved ten #1 country hits including “No News,” “Come Crying To Me,” and their crossover smash “Amazed”.
