Brett Eldredge to perform at 2015 Wyoming State Fair
The Wyoming State Fair is proud to announce that country music star Brett Eldredge will be performing in the Wyoming State Fair Grandstands on Tuesday, August 11, 2015 at 7 p.m. with the duo Dan+Shay opening the night’s performance.
A country up-and-comer from Illinois, Brett Eldredge will kick off the 2015 Wyoming State Fair concert lineup with his passionate performance and award winning music. His smooth, soulful and distinctive voice coupled with his strong songwriting abilities has made him a fast rising star in country music. Brett was selected as the CMA “New Artist of the Year” in November, 2014. Eldredge is now nominated for “New Artist of the Year” by the Academy of Country Music, which will be selected in April, 2015. Two of his singles, “Beat of the Music” and “Don’t Ya,” already have reached the top of the Billboard country charts. Along with this, “Beat of the Music” won the American Country Countdown Awards’ Song of the Year in mid-December 2014. He also recently gained recognition for his song-writing, as well. The hit TV show “Nashville” used the Eldredge-penned song “Adios Old Friend.” Country star Trace Adkins cut his song “Watch the World End” and the Country Music Association featured him in their esteemed songwriters series in New York City.
“Brett Eldredge will bring some of today’s well known songs in country music to Douglas with a performance to be enjoyed by all who come,” said James Goodrich, director of the Wyoming State Fair. “We want to bring the best artists in country music to Wyoming and Brett is one of the biggest new artists out there.”
Opening for Eldredge will be Dan + Shay, who have established themselves as one of country music’s most promising duo’s with their debut album “Where It All Began.” Already Academy of Country Music Award nominees for “Vocal Duo of the Year”, Dan + Shay bring a youthful sense of energy to country music. Their debut hit single, “19 You + Me,” which, upon its release, had the biggest first week by a new duo in trade publication Country Aircheck’s history, was the most added debut of 2013 at country radio and was certified Gold by the RIAA.
“Dan + Shay are a great act with talents that will make them a headline act very soon,” said Goodrich. “We couldn’t be happier that Brett Eldredge and Dan + Shay will be playing the 103rd Wyoming State Fair.”
The Wyoming State Fair is a showcase of Wyoming agriculture and industries. Stationed in Douglas, Wyoming since 1905, the State Fair also represents Wyoming heritage and culture with a focus on education, competition, and entertainment for all ages.
