Tickets for the Saturday, Aug. 30 Dustin Lynch concert at the Lake County
Fairgrounds as part of the Lake County Fair and Round-Up will go on sale starting on Monday, July 21 at Umpqua Bank in Lakeview at 9 a.m.
Lynch will headline the musical performances at the fair, performing at 6:30 p.m. at the fairgrounds as a precursor to two days of rodeo action during the Round-Up.
Lynch is a native of Tullahoma, Tenn., who moved to Nashville to attend college and immerse himself in the country music scene. Establishing a foothold at the Bluebird Café, a renowned testing ground for new country artists, he was discovered in 2011 and signed to Broken Bow Records. His self-titled debut album was released in 2012, featuring the hit songs “Where It’s At,” “She Cranks My Tractor” and “Cowboys and Angels.” In 2013 the album peaked at #1 on the Country Album charts and reached as high as #13 on the Billboard 200.
Lynch draws his influences from well-established new country artists such as Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson and Clint Black, which he refers to as “The Class of ‘89” as all three reached national acclaim first in 1989 ushering in a new era of popularity in country music.
Corporate sponsors of the event include S.S. Equipment, Ed Staub & Sons, Pacific Pine, Western Video/Shasta Livestock and Todd Muller, among others.
This year’s Round-Up will for the first time be certified as a PRCA Rodeo, which should draw more attention, larger crowds, and higher levels of competition to the Lake County Round-Up.
Tickets begin at $20 for general admission and stage side, $25 for grandstand reserve seating, and $30 for box seats. Umpqua Bank is located at 1 S. E St. in Lakeview.
