LIMA — The Allen County Fair is pleased to announce that Kane Brown, one of today’s most exciting young country music artists, will headline and appear live, in concert Saturday, Aug. 17, at this year’s Allen County Fair Grandstand.

“The Allen County Fair’s Board of Directors heard the public’s desire to see great country music acts and jumped at the opportunity to get Kane Brown! This young artist sold out every single venue on his first headlining tour! We are incredibly excited we’ve been able to get this act for our fans,” Fair General Manager Bob Fricke said.

As Fricke stated above, Kane Brown sold out every stop of his first headlining tour and hasn’t looked back. He has built an amazing online following of nearly 4 million social subscribers by developing a compassionate back-and-forth with fans of all stripes, sympathizing with their struggles and celebrating their successes alongside his own.

Brown’s debut self-titled album went Gold-Certified and stands as country’s best-selling new-artist debut since 2014. It debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and Top 10 on the Billboard 200 all-genre chart with 51,000 units (45,000 in album sales) and became the No. 4 best-selling new-artist album debut of 2016, in any genre.

In October 2017, he again rocketed to the top of the charts with the release of Kane Brown Deluxe Edition – a 15-song edition of his self-titled album – debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums and Top 5 on the Billboard 200.

The singer/songwriter became the first artist ever to be No. 1 on all five of Billboard’s main country charts simultaneously, including Top Country Albums; Country Digital Song Sales (with the No. 1 debuting “Heaven”); and Country Airplay, Hot Country Songs and Country Streaming Songs (with “What Ifs”). From that album came Brown’s latest single, the already-Gold-certified 2018 chart-climber “Heaven.”
