The New York State Fair just keeps getting better and better.  More music will fill Chevy Court, including lots of country.  And it's all free with your fair admission. 

 Trace Adkins will perform Saturday August 27th at 8pm.  It will be his first show in our area since his home was destroyed in a fire.  He's since been staying at weekend family home and enjoying the success of his latest song "Just Fishin'" and album "Proud to Be Here," which has new meaning to Trace since the fire. 

Trace has charted more than 20 songs and has appeared in several TV shows including The Celebrity Apprentice where he got robbed!  There is no way Trump should have hired Piers Morgan over Trace.  But I digress.  And lets not forget his acting career with an appearance in Matthew McConaughey's latest film "The Lincoln Lawyer."  Oh and the ladies seem to like him too.

Ronnie Dunn will grace the stage Tuesday August 30th at 8pm.  It'll be interesting to see how he performs without his 20 year Brooks and Dunn partner Kix Brooks.  If his latest self titled debut solo album is any indication, he'll do fine.  The CD was #1 among the fans in country music and it landed at #5 on the Billboards 200 charts.   "Bleed Red" and "Cost of Livin" both hit a chord with fans and listeners. 

Jake Owen must have a break on the Get Closure tour, where he's opening for Keith Urban.  He'll perform Monday September 5th at 8pm. 

Larry Gatlin & the Gatlin Brothers will appear at Chevy Court Thursday August 25th at 8pm. 

"The Chevy Court concert series is continuing to prove that the New York State Fair is home of the best free music venue in the country," said Dan O'Hara, the fair director.  I'd have to agree.  This latest list of shows, added to the already outstanding talent announced, including Steel Magnolia, celebrity chef Curtis Stone, Three Dog Night and Bruno Mars is the most impressive to date.   To think you can see all this for free with just your fair admission ticket.  And if you buy it in advance it'll only cost you 6 bucks for the day.  Or you can get a six day frequent fair pass for only thirty dollars.

The New York State Fair runs August 25th through September 5th.
