Nashville recording artist Clay Walker will be headlining the entertainment at the 2017 Jackson County Fair. He will be taking the stage Saturday, July 22 at 9 p.m. He has six number-one hits to his credit.
The Monster Truck event is enjoyed by many people at the Jackson County Fair. It is part of the final entertainment lineup.
A super entertainment lineup is in store for the 2017 Jackson County Fair which began its nine-day run on Friday, July 14. Headlining the musical lineup is Nashville recording artist Clay Walker. He will take the stage Saturday night, July 22 at 9 p.m. as the fair's big finale event.
Walker's opening act will be Crossroad Station, the Nashville recording act with local roots, as they start their show at 7:30 p.m. The band members recently completed a tour through the Great Plains states and are promoting their recent release entitled "Our Neck of the Woods."
Gate admission for the show will be $10 while dirt-track tickets offering reserved seating are still on sale for $15.
This is the third consecutive year the Fair Board has brought in national entertainment. Sammy Kershaw performed two years ago while Tracy Lawrence took the stage a year ago. The board has kept the entertainment at a high level this year.
Jackson County Fair Board Entertainment Chairman Chris Smalley told The Telegram, "I think this will be the biggest year yet."
Walker, a Texas native, has six number-one songs ("What's It to You," "Live Until I Die," "Dreaming With My Eyes Wide Open," "If I Could Make a Living Out of Loving You," "This Woman and This Man," and "Rumor Has It") to his credit. He also has a number-three hit tune entitled "Chain of Love" that has long legs on country radio. He has performed at venues all over the world including the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage.
Dirt track tickets can be purchased for the show via the jacksoncofair.com website. They are sold through the third party Ticketer website and payments can be made through Paypal accounts.
Smalley explained the VIP tickets are sold out. The VIP ticket entitles the first six rows to the Dakota's Dinner tent. Smalley wanted to point out, though, the VIP ticket does not give the buyer access to the meet-and-greet session with Walker.
It does, he continued, allow them to be placed in a special drawing where two members will win the right to be there. The fans on the dirt track do not have access to the Dakota's booth or to any free-of-charge food or drinks.
However, the track-seat buyers will have good seats and the sooner the person buys, the closer to the stage they will get. As far as grandstand seating is concerned, Smalley stated there is a limited number of them and when they are sold out, people will have to stand or purchase a dirt-track ticket for $20 each at the gate.
"People who want a grandstand seat need to get here early," Smalley emphasized.
He stated the overall entertainment lineup is outstanding, including the Diamond Rodeo, the Demolition Derby on Friday night, the Monster Truck event and many others.
"This is the most money we have ever spent for entertainment," added Smalley. "We are hoping people come to the fair more than one night." Of course, this will be mixed with all the 4-H and youth activities and much more.
