Country Music Artists, Brantley Gilbert and LANCO, to perform at the 2020 Washington County FairMarch 16, 2020Country Music Artists, Brantley Gilbert and LANCO, to perform at the 2020 Washington County Fair
West Bend: Kellie Boone, Executive Director of Washington County Fair Park & Conference Center, announces that two of their 2020 Fair concert headliners will be Brantley Gilbert on Saturday, July 25th and LANCO on Thursday, July 23rd. commented Boone.
Performing on Saturday of the Fair is Brantley Gilbert who lives in Jefferson, Georgia rather than – like so many country stars -- Nashville. It’s not that he’s not serious about his music, or his career, but somethings run deeper. Or as he sings in “Grown Ass Man” from his platinum Just As I Am, “I got a home.” That home is rich with life, truth, friends, history – and those are the raw materials that have made Gilbert one of only four country artists with back-to-back platinum certified albums. For Gilbert, who’s done USO Tours, put together and headlined a benefit show for 80,000 on the river bank in Chattanooga after a sniper killed 5 servicemen at a recruiting facility, met with countless Make-A-Wish kids and wrote the #1 “One Hell of an Amen” to celebrate a life lost after a hard fight to cancer and a pair of friends – one who died in the other’s arms – in the Middle East, it’s how we hold each other up that matters. It’s also what made The Devil Don’t Sleep take so long – and be so large.
For Thursday night’s entertainment, LANCO continues to pave its course after the success of their 2x PLATINUM multi-week radio chart-topper “Greatest Love Story” and critically acclaimed GOLD hit “Born to Love You.” The five-man band’s No. One selling debut and coming-of-age album, HALLELUJAH NIGHTS, made LANCO the first Country group to debut on the Billboard Country albums charts at No. One in 10 years with their coming-of-age album. Now they have dropped two irresistibly nostalgic tracks “Old Camaro” and "What I See,” which serves as their new single at Country radio. Revealing another layer of LANCO, they fuse together a modern twist on sentimental hometown memories combined with a fresh mix of organic sounds. The new music from the ACM “New Group of the Year” follows multiple nominations from the CMT, CMA, ACM, AMA, and iHeart Awards, while Lancaster became the first member of a group to ever win NSAI’s “Songwriter/Artist of the Year.”
The 162nd Annual Washington County Fair kicks off on Tuesday, July 21 and runs through Sunday, July 26. Friday night’s Headliner will be announced soon. A full schedule of events can be found at wcfairpark.com/Fair/. VIP Reserved Seating tickets
