Black Hills Energy Concert Series: WALKER HAYES with Diamond Rio

Our Pick
Date: Aug 26, 2022
Time: 7:00 PM
Central States Fair, Inc. is excited to welcome Monument Records recording artist WALKER HAYES to the Central States Fair on Friday, August 26, as part of the Black Hills Energy Concert Series. “When Hayes hit the charts he was an instant fan favorite”, says Fair Manager Ron Jeffries. “We are so excited to be the first event to bring him to South Dakota”

A singer/songwriter from Mobile, Alabama, Hayes’ album Country Stuff The Album came out in 2021 and features new single “AA” and smash hit “Fancy Like.” “Fancy Like” has topped every sales and streaming chart since its release, spending a collective six months and counting at the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Country Songs Chart, and hitting the top 5 on Billboard’s Hot 100 Songs. The irresistible tune was certified RIAA 3X Platinum within a year of release, and the track gave Hayes his first GRAMMY Award nomination as an artist for Best Country Song. Propelled by the TikTok dance Hayes made with his teenage daughter, “Fancy Like” has been used over half a million times on the app, with that original, homemade video, racking up over 32 million views, and appearing in a national Applebee’s ad campaign.
Joining Hayes is country band Diamond Rio. Diamond Rio signed to Arista Records in 1991 with the release of “Meet In The Middle” and became the first country music group in history to reach No. 1 with a debut single. The band is also known for their hits “How Your Love Makes Me Feel,” “One More Day,” “Beautiful Mess,” “Unbelievable,” “In A Week or Two,” and more.
