Country music's Billy Currington and Jason Michael Carroll play on Saturday, Aug. 8 at 8 p.m. Currington, whose most recent album, "Little Bit of Everything," has spawned the hit singles "Don't" and "People Are Crazy" will headline the show. Meanwhile, Carroll's latest tune, "Where I'm From" is currently charting.
Contemporary Christian group MercyMe returns to the Fair on Monday, Aug. 10 at 7:30 p.m. WAMI nominee for Christian Artist of the Year Chad James opens.
Reserved seat tickets for both shows go on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday, April 25 and are $30, $20, and $10 (per show, of course).

I agree, and I am a Christian music fan! Mercy Me is only being used because they are a bland, run of the mill, middle of the road, contemporary band. AND they had a crossover semi-hit (years ago) in "I can only Imagine" Try getting some good Christian acts like Relient K, Skillet, Family Force 5, or David Crowder.
To borrow a line from Jerry Seinfeld, "Who are these people?? Try getting someone we recognize. Jeez...
christian music at OUR state fair?? GOOD GRIEF! what is next? all of the other religions/faiths to be represented? enough is enough. STOP BOOKING SUCH ACTS.
