The country concerts will be held nightly during the fair’s run from Sept. 6 to Sept. 15, and they’re free with the cost of admission to the fair.

Local singers Colt Wilbur and Lindsey Erin will also take the stage for special 3 p.m. shows. For the complete lineup, head here.

The Sept. 12 show will mark Lauren Alaina’s fourth appearance in York and her second at the fair. She recently released “Barefoot and Buckwild,” the lead single from her upcoming sophomore album.

Kristy Lee, who finished seventh back in Season 7, released her first single under Broken Bow Records, “Airborne Ranger Infantry,” in October. She’s working on her first album under that label.
