Central States Fair, Inc. welcomes RUSSELL DICKERSON to the Central States Fair as part of the Black Hills Energy Concert Series on Saturday, August 27. Fans already know Dickerson as a prolific songwriter and powerhouse showman. In 2017, his gold-certified full-length album, ‘Yours’, bowed at #5 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart and #1 on the Emerging Artists Chart. Not to mention, it yielded three consecutive #1 hits including the double-platinum “Yours” (christened “One of the hottest wedding songs of the year”), the platinum “Blue Tacoma,” and platinum “Every Little Thing.” Nominations followed at the Academy of Country Music Awards, CMT Music Awards, and iHeart Radio Music Awards. Among many highlights in 2020, he received a nod in the category of “Best New Male Artist of the Year” at the ACM Awards.
Opening for Dickerson is LOGAN MIZE. In 2009, Mize released his first, self-titled album. Over the next decade and three more albums, he scored hit singles with “Ain't Always Pretty” and “Better Off Gone” (which was recently certified Gold by the RIAA), and logged over 350 million streams on different platforms. Mize’s newest album, ‘Welcome to Prairieville’, is his most personal work to date.
“We are extremely excited for this year’s Central States Fair”, says Ron Jeffries, Fair Manager. “We’ve made some scheduling changes that we think fairgoers will really like, and our entertainment lineup is sure to please.”
