The Central States Fair is pleased to welcome Sawyer Brown to the stage on Saturday, August 26.
Sawyer Brown is a trailblazing country act known for chart-topping songs like "Step That Step”, "Some Girls Do", and "Thank God for You”. With 20 albums and 51 Billboard Hot Country charting songs, Sawyer Brown established itself as a leader of ‘80s and ‘90s country, but the band still puts on one of the most entertaining shows in music nearly 40 years later!
“This is exactly the type of grandstand entertainment we look for”, says Fair Manager Ron Jeffries. “Sawyer Brown puts on a great, upbeat show for the entire family!” The band’s live shows are legendary. Having been described as “the Rolling Stones of Country Music,” the band bounds onto the stage night after night, delivering its own unique brand of high-energy entertainment, and the band remains a constant favorite at fairs, festivals, theatres, and casinos.
“We love getting to hear the stories of where people have seen us play—and the number of times they’ve seen us play,” drummer Joe Smyth says. “For some, we’re their weekend getaway—they’ve seen us all over the country. But we never lose sight of the fact that on any given night, it’s going to be the first time someone’s seen us—and that’s exciting. We want that show, that night, to live up to everything they hoped for when they came to the show. Couldn’t ask for better motivation.”
