Jon Pardi to perform at Clay County Fair

Spencer, Iowa — The Clay County Fair announces Jon Pardi with special guest Jake Rose as part of the SRG Concert Series in the Sleep Number Grandstand at the 2019 Clay County Fair on Friday, September 13 at 7:30pm.

“It will be exciting to have this great night of country music on Friday night at the Fair,” said CCF Manager Jeremy Parsons.

2017 CMA New Artist of the Year and ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year, Jon Pardi has dominated the top of the country music charts with consecutive #1 hits including “Dirt On My Boots,” Platinum-selling “Head Over Boots” and “Heartache On The Dance Floor.” Pardi, bred in the West Coast honky tonks, stocks his album with classic Nashville melody, blue-collar lyrical themes and authentic country instrumentation – real drums, loud-and-proud fiddles and tangy steel guitar.

Jake Rose, a singer-songwriter from a pumpkin farm north of Minneapolis, spent his early years bailing hay, building fences, and side stage at his Dad’s country band shows, “Stampede.” His first single “Sleeves,” co-written with hitman Craig Wiseman, debuted on The Highway and CMT. Rose spent 2018 opening for Tim McGraw, Billy Currington, FGL, Eli Young Band, Russell Dickerson and LoCash to name a few.
