Grandstand Concerts 2019
Hootie and the Blowfish w/ Barenaked Ladies
Friday July 19 2019!
Hootie and the Blowfish with the rich, bluesy vocals of Darius Rucker and gleeful harmonies of guitarist Mark Bryan, bassist Dean Felber and drummer Jim "Soni" Sonefeld, Hootie &the Blowfish have sold over 25 million records worldwide to date after their infectious melodies hit the airwaves in 1994 with hits such as "Hold My Hand", "Let Her Cry" and "Only Wanna Be With You." and you can hear it all on Friday night at the 2019 Great Jones County Fair.
Barenaked Ladies and their high energy live show will be joining Hootie and the Blowfish as their special guests. Relentless work spanning 3 decades, over a dozen albums, and countless hits and they're coming to the 2019 fair! This is going to be one special night!
Track (SRO): $73
Chris Stapleton w/ Kendell Marvel
Saturday July 20 2019!
Chris Stapleton appeared to be one of those overnight storybook sensations: a troubadour who came out of nowhere to become a major star in the autumn of 2015 on the strength of his debut album, Traveller. Like most overnight sensations, Stapleton had a long, hard road behind him.
Best Male Vocalist, Album of the Year, New Artist of the Year... all of these have been won by Chris. His long history as a hit songwriter proves this will be one great night of country music at the 2019 Great Jones County Fair.
Kendell Marvel, already an award-winning songwriter, having written hits for Chris Stapleton, George Strait, Jamey Johnson and Jake Owen is bringing his brand new music to the Saturday night party! He made his solo debut with Lowdown and Lonesome, a concept album that blends his musical down home country and rock & roll roots. Come on out for a GREAT night!
Track (SRO): $83
TobyMac w/ We Are Messengers
Sunday July 21 2019!
TobyMac “What hits me now more than ever is that you really don’t get a practice run at life,” explains Toby. “This is it. In my friendships, raising my children, loving my wife, loving people, performing with my band and stepping on stage at arenas, I want to make every moment count.”
For Toby, making every moment count is about more than just saying it out loud. Whether he’s at home with his wife and five children, mentoring new artists, recording in the studio or on the road with his band Diverse City, Toby’s heart for collaboration is rooted in his belief that no matter where we’ve come from, we are better together then we are alone.
We Are Messengers will be joining TobyMac as their special guests. They're new, award winning, hit-producing, up and coming, and ready to put on a vibrant and energetic show for all of their current and soon-to-be new fans!
With over 11 million units in career sales and six Grammy® Awards, TobyMac shows now signes of slowing down as he heads for the 2019 Great Jones County Fair!
