Rodney Atkins on Saturday Night
                                  July 14, 2018

A native of East Tennessee, Atkins has had six No. 1 hits from his first three albums, from Watching You and These are My People to his most recent smashes, Take a Back Road and Farmer's Daughter. He's sold over four million singles in the past five years alone.

"What does it mean to follow your own path? I try to think about that a lot when I'm makeing an album. To me, it's going somewhere you've never been, because when you do that you wind up seeing things that no one has seen before, which means you can paint the picture differently."


Walker McGuire will open on Saturday Night

The duo of Jordan Walker and Johnny McGuire fuse "electrifying brotherly harmonies with a fresh new take on modern country.

"We tell people, if you took Keith Whitley and Tom Petty and intersected them at Matchbox 20, that's kind of what we're going for."


Jerrod Niemann on Friday Night                                               July 13, 2018

Singer songwriter Niemann recently released This Ride his fourth studio album. His first album Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury was on the New York Times' Tope 10 Albums of 2010 and included the gold certified Top 5 song What do you Want and the platinum No. 1 Lover, Lover.

"This album is like Life 2.0 for me. If This Ride were a movie, it'd be told from the point of view of the man in the story instead of the boy. Challenging yourself as a human being and as a man is what lif is all about, and it's been rewarding to put that in my music."


The Last Ride and Tony Winkler will open on Fri.

An Iowa native, Winkler is returning to the Winneshiek County Fair. He is the founding member and lead singer for The Last Ride and opened for Sawyer Brown at the Fair in 2015.

The Last Ride has shared the stage with Lady Antebellum, Rascal Flatts, Toby Keith, Lee Brice, Phil Vassar, Alan Jackson and others. As a songwriter, he has penned songs for ESPN's College GameDay and the College Baseball World Series along with Game Mill Productions. He is currently working on his solo album and writing with Silverado Recording artists.
