After last year's fair cancellation, a lot of people were wondering what was coming up this year.  Well, the Missouri State Fair has announced that concerts will be coming back this year. 

And, they've announced the first four that are coming! I'm sure not all of them are finalized yet, so we'll have to wait and see what else is coming.

Last year, Trace Adkins was supposed to perform.  This year, he's coming back for Opening Day, Thursday, August 12. Opening for him will be Dusty Slay, he's a young comedian.  That should be fun!

The next country act coming will be Russel Dickerson on Friday the 13th.  You know him from "Blue Tacoma" and "Yours".  Opening for him will be Cassadee Pope, who got her start on The Voice and has had some big hits since then.

For the first Saturday show, the Fair has really pulled out a different act!  This year, Boyz II Men are coming!  Oh man, how many hits have they had over the years?

The trio holds the distinction of being the best-selling R&B group of all time with hits like “End of the Road,” “I’ll Make Love to You,” and “One Sweet Day.”

We're definitely gonna get some sweet sweet harmonies coming this year.  And it's perfect nineties nostalgia! Opening for them is a group called Kasual, and they're an R&B harmony group, too!

Then the next week, starting Tuesday the 17th, Tyler Farr and Tenille Townes are coming to the Grandstand.  You know Tyler from big hits like "Redneck Crazy" and "A Guy Walks Into a Bar".  And Tenille?  She's "Somebody's Daughter" and Rolling Stone has her on their promising songwriter list.

So now that we've got an inkling of some of the acts coming, you can get your tickets starting June 29.   If you want to find out more or find out about presales, you can go here.

Are you excited about the lineup this year? Which show do you want to see? Will you go to more than one?

Fairingly yours,
