This will be the first year I will be a part of the Missouri State Fair.  After seeing who has been booked for the fair, I am getting excited.  I am a big fan of Trace Adkins, Lonestar, Sam Hunt, ZZ Top, and Tesla.  I think that is a decent lineup.  You can add another country star to the lineup, and he will be set to perform Aug 20th.

He will be the artist that will close out the Fair, and I have seen him before when he played Mizzou Arena about 6 years ago.  He put on a nice show, and he has more songs that you realize.  Below is more info courtesy of the Missouri State Fair press release:
Multi-platinum hitmaker and Arkansas native Justin Moore has built a loyal following over the past decade with his traditional country sound and captivating live shows. Climbing to the country radio charts with his recent single, “With a Woman You Love,” the emotional tune follows in the footsteps of his 10th No. 1 hit, “We Didn’t Have Much.” Moore’s list of hits include “You Look Like I Need a Drink,” “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away” and “Small Town USA,” among others.

Opening for Moore is another Arkansas native Heath Sanders. Sanders spent nearly a decade working on natural gas wells before his passion for music proved too strong to resist as a career. Named by Pandora as one of their 2021 Country Artists to Watch Sanders draws upon a lifetime of early mornings and long days, as a new voice of folks who identify with hard work and have the sore backs and tired feet to show for it. His Common Ground collection features songs including the title track, “Old School’s In,” “Love Needs Makin’,” and “Can’t Undo I Do.
So the lineup for the fair is coming together nicely.  As a reminder, tickets to all State Fair Grandstand concerts will go on sale to the public starting at 9 am, June 28 through Etix. More information about State Fair concerts can be found on the Fair’s website.
