There truly is nothing like "Fair Season" in South Dakota. It's the time of year to enjoy greasy fair food and dance to great music all night. One popular fair to visit this summer is the Brown County Fair.

The Brown County Fair in Aberdeen already has a star-studded lineup for this year's Grandstand entertainment. Fairgoers can check out the Roots and Boots show featuring Aaron Tippin, Sammy Kershaw, and Collin Raye, country singer Mitchell Tenpenny with Ingrid Andress, and Lil Jon with Hinder just to name a few.

One popular show that was part of this year's Grandstand stage was country singer Jimmie Allen with special guest former Rascal Flatts singer Gary LeVox on Saturday, August 19th. Unfortunately, officials with the Brown County Fair made the tough decision to drop Jimmie Allen from the Saturday line-up last month. But there is good news! The Brown County Fair recently announced a new opening act for Saturday's show. Before Gary LeVox takes the stage, country artist, producer, rapper, and songwriter Blanco Brown will perform in front of the Brown County Fair fans.

Some people might not be familiar with Blanco Brown...but I'm sure some dancers know his biggest hit. The song Blanco Brown is most known for is his debut single "The Git Up." The song was released in April 2019 and it's been a huge dancing trend on social media platforms like Instagram and TikTok.

The dance is known as #TheGitUpChallenge. There are a lot of steps to follow!

The Brown County Fair begins on Monday, August 14th through Sunday, August 20th. Tickets for all shows are available here. We can't wait to experience these awesome concerts this summer.
