I love me my country western


Enough with the country music. Some is fine but needs more variety


Meh, country isn’t what it used to be. I remember a “country” band at In The Streets a few years ago doing covers of what were rock songs 35 years ago.


Thank you for the comment! I will say, Country artists are the artists that are actually touring right now (at least at County Fairs with fixed dates like ours). You would be surprised at just how many requests were made for other genres that aren't touring... But, that said ZZ Top (Rock) Marshall Tucker (Older Southern Rock) TobyMac (Christian) should give guests something to choose from! In the meantime, check out some of the concerts Showtime at the Drive In is having at the Fairgrounds!!!
