Multi-Platinum Hitmakers REO Speedwagon Live at the Franklin County Fair

The Franklin County Fair Board of Directors announces the first of the entertainment line-up coming to the 168th annual Franklin County Agricultural Fair. REO Speedwagon will appear at the Franklin County Fair in Malone, NY Saturday August 4th 2018. Fair dates will be August 3rd – 12th, 2018.

Formed in 1967, signed in 1971, and fronted by iconic vocalist Kevin Cronin since 1972, REO Speedwagon's unrelenting drive, as well as non-stop touring and recording jump-started the burgeoning rock movement in the Midwest. Platinum albums and radio staples soon followed, setting the stage for the release of The Band's explosive Hi Infidelity in 1980, which contained the massive hit singles "Keep On Loving You," and "Take It On the Run." That landmark album spent 15 weeks in the No. 1 slot and has since earned the RIAA's coveted 10X Diamond Award for surpassing sales of 10 million units in the United States.

Today, REO Speedwagon has sold 40 million albums around the globe, and Cronin and bandmates Bruce Hall (bass), Neal Doughty (keyboards), Dave Amato (guitar), and Bryan Hitt (drums) are still electrifying audiences worldwide in concert with hits and fan-favorites such as "In Your Letter," "Can't Fight This Feeling," "Time For Me To Fly," "Roll With The Changes," the aforementioned "Keep On Loving You," "Take It On the Run," and many, many more.

The Franklin County Fair will have tickets available online at http://www.frcofair.com and at the Franklin County Fair office in Malone NY starting Wednesday December 13th 2018 at 9am.

The Franklin County Fair Board of Directors announces the Country entertainer coming to the 168th annual Franklin County Agricultural Fair. Devin Dawson will appear at the Franklin County Fair in Malone, NY Tuesday August 7th 2018. Fair dates will be August 3rd – 12th, 2018.

Since the release of Devin Dawson's debut single "All On Me" earlier this year, the California-native has already made his TV debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers, landed his first Grand Ole Opry performance and most recently was named a 2018 Pandora "Country Artist to Watch." He has already received critical praise from a multitude of outlets including Entertainment Tonight, ELLE, People, Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, The Tennessean, HITS Magazine and more. An atypical country artist, Dawson's approach to music is not different on purpose, it's different with purpose. He grew up just outside the gates of Folsom Prison, drawing inspiration from Johnny Cash, Alan Jackson, Marvin Gaye and Creedence Clearwater Revival. Pulling from these influences, he began to write in a style that is definitively country. Dawson's lyrics full of romance and vulnerability, delivered with a distinctive saw-toothed vocal, draw you in from the first verse and keep you hooked until the very last chord. His unique mix of organic roots and high-voltage country is showcased masterfully on his forthcoming debut Dark Horse, produced by the daring Jay Joyce (Eric Church, Little Big Town, Brothers Osborne). With a co-write credit on every track, the result will further establish Dawson's building reputation as a dark horse set to emerge as one of the most exciting modern storytellers the format has ever seen.
