Country, Pop, and Comedy Dominate the Kentucky State Fair Main Stage in 2013

You want country? You got it! You want pop? You got it! You want to laugh? No problem. The 2013 Kentucky State Fair has it all!

The main stage at Freedom Hall is the place on August 15 for state fair openers Alan Jackson and Gary Allan at 8PM. Alan and Allan, combined, have sent 60 songs into the Billboard Country Chart top 10 and nearly half that total to #1.

On August 16, you’ll be able to see and hear LIVE one of the catchiest pop songs of all time–“Call Me Maybe”–when Carly Rae Jepsen and The Wanted team up for an 8PM concert at the Hall. Jepsen’s tune isn’t just a big hit. It’s a 9-million selling juggernaut the world over. The Wanted’s self-titled debut album debuted in the top 10 and spawned the top 3 triple-platinum smash “Glad You Came Here.”

On August 17th, country returns to Freedom Hall with superstar Toby Keith and special guest Kip Moore. That’s a lot of music to cover considering Toby’s 41 top ten hits and 20 #1 songs. And Kip’s a great opener, having sent his last two consecutive single releases–“Somethin’ ‘Bout a Truck” and “Beer Money”–all the way to the top.

On August 25, one of the funniest guys on the planet will take the stage at Freedom Hall when master ventriloquist Jeff Dunham brings his Disorderly Conduct Tour and his politically incorrect cast of characters–like Achmed the Dead Terrorist, Jose Jalapeno, and Walter the grumpy old man– to the Kentucky State Fair.

All shows start at 8PM. Tickets for Alan Jackson and Gary Allan are on sale now. All other tickets will go on sale Friday May 10th at all Ticketmaster outlets. The Kentucky State Fair is August 15-25. For more information, visit
