Jan. 30—GEORGETOWN — The Georgetown Fair board is excited to announce the lineup for this year's fair concert.
Headlining the night on July 13 is one of country music's most praised traditional country artists, Joe Nichols, who has six No. 1 hits and eight Top 10 singles to his credit.
The star has earned multiple RIAA platinum and gold certifications for his hit albums and singles. They are: "Yeah" — GOLD Single; "Sunny and 75" — GOLD Single; "Gimme That Girl" — GOLD Single; "Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off" — GOLD Single, III — GOLD Album; Man with a Memory — PLATINUM Album.
Opening for Nichols is Walker Montgomery, who has been chosen as an Artist to Watch by Country Now, Music Mayhem Magazine, Sounds Like Nashville, and The Boot.
The Country Next pick by Country Now is a rising singer/songwriter who knows a thing or two about family tradition, but he's an artist making his legacy. The 21-year-old son of John Michael Montgomery and nephew of Montgomery Gentry's Eddie Montgomery pedigree is matched only by his country passion.
Both acts promise a performance you will want to attend.
The concert will take place at the Georgetown Fairgrounds in Georgetown. Gates will open at 6 p.m., and the show will start at 7:30 p.m.
Tickets go on sale at 8 a.m. Feb 2 at www.georgetownfair.org.
