Variety of music acts set to rock State Fair
Whether it's Friday night fiddling, Saturday night Superlatives, somebody who's pretty good at drinking beer, or the pompatus of love himself, there's something for everybody as part of this year's Nebraska State Fair Concert Series.
In just a few hours people will be making their way to the Heart of Nebraska as they step into the Heartland Events Center for the beginning of the Nebraska State Fair's major music lineup.
Along with big name entertainment, there will be more great music resounding throughout the fair grounds.
Seven major music acts will be taking the stage at the Heartland Event Center during this year's State Fair.
Country, rock and Christian performers will be entertaining fair-goers.
The Grammy award winning Charlie Daniels Band will kick off the Nebraska State Fair Concert series Friday night.
Along with great fiddle music on Friday evening, Saturday night will be an evening filled with down home country music, including legends Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives with Special Guest Connie Smith and the Quebe Sisters.
The first hour of the Saturday night concert will be broadcast live on RFD-TV and Rural TV. This is a first for the Nebraska State Fair since moving to its new home in Grand Island.
By Wednesday you'll be thinking about gold as Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers golden voices ring through the Heartland Events Center during two different daytime performances.
Contemporary Christian group Mercy Me will take the stage Thursday night as they highlight songs from four of their gold albums. The Mercy Me concert is the last of the free concerts that require a wrist band during the Nebraska State Fair.
Labor Day Weekend kicks off the paid concerts that require a separate ticket.
Friday night The Fray will take the stage. The Denver based piano rock band won't have far to travel compared to some of the venues they have performed in all over the world.
On Saturday night, country music lovers can listen to one of country music's top performers Billy Currington.
And if you love 70's rock make sure you make it to Grand Island on Sunday night as the Steve Miller Band rounds out the Nebraska State Fair.
