EDGAR COUNTY, Ill. (WTWO/WAWV) — A major hit-maker is headlining the 2022 Edgar County Fair, Walker Hayes will perform in the fair’s Friday night show.
If you’ve been humming along to Applebee’s commercials for the last few months then you already know the hit song. The singer of “Fancy like” will be joined by another country music artist, Cooper Alan, in the show which is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. July 29.
“This is an exciting time for us,” Fair Board member and concert organizer Shannon Quinn said. “It’s been a few years since we’ve been able to have a big concert as part of the fair. The last time was Brett Eldredge, who we managed to get just before his price went up.”
“It was a hail mary effort after a few other artists hadn’t worked out,” Quinn explained.
Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, Jan. 28 starting at 8:00 a.m. with 4,000 available for purchase. Quinn says that a number of box seats will be auctioned off in July just before the fair as well. Should the show not sell out, tickets the day of will cost $10 dollars more than originally priced.
