State Fair adds superstar to grandstand lineup


HURON — The South Dakota State Fair and Legend Seeds announced Tuesday morning that country legend Trace Adkins will play in concert at the South Dakota State Fair Grandstand on Sunday, Sept. 1.

In his 25-year Country music career, Adkins has sold more than 11 million albums, charted in excess of 20 singles, earned numerous awards and Grammy nominations, and garnered more than two billion streams.

“Trace Adkins will bring the grandstand stage to life,” says Peggy Besch, SD State Fairgrounds Manager. “You can expect a night full of songs you know and love, with amazing showmanship and un-apologetic patriotism.”

As a Grand Ole Opry member for nearly two decades, the Louisiana native is known for dynamic baritone and fiery, always-memorable live performances, and has expanded his impressive music career to include film and TV acting.

Adkins broke out in 1996 with the debut album, Dreamin’ Out Loud,” cracking the Top 5 of Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart with “Every Light In the House Is On” followed by the No. 1 smash, “This Ain’t No Thinkin’ Thing.”

Since then, Adkins has pioneered a mix of both classic and modern country through fun-filled hits like “Honky Tonk Badonkadonk” and “Hillbilly Bone” — with Blake Shelton.

Ticket presales begin on May 28 for VIP Tables sales, followed by June 10 for Backrest Holders and June 12 for Friends of the Fair.
General public ticket sales open on June 17. Pricing and ticket information can be found at
