Country Music superstar Brad Paisley will kick off the 2019 Grandstand of Stars concert series at the York Fair on September 6, 2019 at 8pm. Paisley is a consummate singer, songwriter, guitarist and entertainer whose talents have earned him numerous awards, including three GRAMMYs, two American Music Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards and 14 Country Music Association Awards (including Entertainer of the Year), among many others.
“We are very excited to have a major artist like Brad Paisley to help us kick off the 2019 version of America’s First Fair,” said CEO Bryan Blair. “One of my priorities as CEO is to improve and expand our Grandstand entertainment offerings during the York Fair and adding Brad Paisley to an already star-studded lineup is a big move in that direction,” he added.
Paisley has been a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry since 2001. Paisley has written 21 of his 24 #1 hits including his most recent smash, “Today.” The song resonated with fans around the globe with the music video garnering over 43 million views, so far. “Heaven South” is his current single from his 11th studio album, LOVE AND WAR, which was released April 21, 2017. It is his 9th consecutive studio album to debut #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. On April 28 LOVE AND WAR was released as country music’s first ever visual album for a limited time exclusively on Apple Music and now is available on VEVO.
Paisley has partnered with Sarah Cannon, the Cancer Institute of HCA Healthcare, and Sony Music Nashville, by launching 2017 Band Against Cancer. The campaign will spread the word of community based treatment, options and support. Sarah Cannon has adopted Paisley’s #1 hit “Today” as the campaign’s 2017 theme song.
The Fair has already announced several other entertainers for the 2019 Grandstand of Stars lineup including runner up from Americas Got Talent: The Champions, ventriloquist Darci Lynne, Bethel Music, the Outlaws & Renegades tour featuring Travis Tritt and Charlie Daniels, and Brantley Gilbert. “With those five concerts we are well on the way to having the best concert series in years at the 2019 York Fair. We are still planning to add at least one rock concert to our lineup that we hope to announce in the next few weeks,” said Blair.
