It's been a while since country has come to The Stanley Theatre in Utica. But that's all about to change on the first day of summer.

Trace Adkins came to town in 2013. A year later it was Martina McBride. The Oak Ridge Boys performed on the Stanley stage in 2019. In 2024 country music returns and he's no stranger to Central New York.

Get Caught Up In The Country

FrogFest Guest

Atkins has entertained his people in Central New York. 12 years ago he filled the Herkimer County Fairgrounds for FrogFest 23.

The crowd even helped close the show, singing along to one of Atkins' biggest hits "If You're Going Through Hell."

The latest Gold-certified single, “Caught Up In The Country (feat. The Fisk Jubilee Singers),” was the longest-running single in Billboard Country Airplay history at 57 weeks.
