Grandstand Lineup for the 2014 Porter County Fair

Jake-OwenThis year's Porter County Fair has an excellent line up that we hope you all enjoy.

Friday, July 18: Jake Owen with special guests Parmalee

Jake Owen couldn't have picked a better single to announce his upcoming fourth album than its title track, "Days of Gold." Not only is its fast-paced arrangement and Jake's acrobatic vocal entirely different than anything currently getting spins on country radio, the song and its glimmering title, defines exactly where the Florida native is in his career.

Since the release of his 2011 watershed album Barefoot Blue Jean Night--which debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart and delivered four consecutive No.1 singles: the double platinum title track, the platinum "Alone with You," and the gold-certified "The One That Got Away" and "Anywhere with You"--Jake has been riding high, and he's channeled that energy into "Days of Gold".

Sunday, July 20: Thomas Rhett with special guests The Swon Brothers

Thomas-RhettA songwriting deal? Heck, Thomas Rhett stumbled into that. And nine months later, he had a song on Jason Aldean’s ‘My Kinda Party’, a double platinum project that became the best-selling country album of 2011.

A recording contract? Thomas Rhett auditioned for at least seven record companies, and every one of them wanted to sign him.

Even Thomas Rhett doesn’t completely understand it.

“I don’t have a clue where it’s going to go or where it’ll end up, but the journey is cool enough for me,” he muses. “I’m here for the ride and to entertain people.” And entertain he does. His first single, “Something To Do With My Hands,” reveals Thomas Rhett as a solid country guy with a distinct urban streak. Other tracks from his debut show someone who’s clever enough to rhyme “Ryman” with “diamond,” who mulls chatting with Jesus over beer, who throws AC/DC hard-rock chants and Coolio hip-hop phrasing into songs that are otherwise country.

Thomas’ full name – Thomas Rhett Akins, Jr. – forever connects him with his dad, Rhett Akins, who earned a trio of Top 20 hits in the mid-1990’s. Those songs—including Top 5 “That Ain’t My Truck” and the #1 single “Don’t Get Me Started” – made an indelible impression, inspiring several other southern Georgians, such as Luke Bryan and ace songwriter Dallas Davidson, to pursue their own country ambitions.

Ticket Prices for THOMAS RHETT:

PIT ------------------------ $40.00
VIP -------------------------$30.00
TRACKSIDE -------------- $25.00
GRANDSTAND ----------$20.00
