Chart-topping powerhouse Justin Moore will perform Saturday, August 6 on the Billion Automotive Main Stage during the 2022 Sioux Empire Fair. An Arkansas native who grew up idolizing Dwight Yoakam and Keith Whitley, Moore knows a thing or two about hit records, starting with his first country #1 with “Small Town USA,” the breakout single off his 2009 self-titled debut. The record went platinum, as did its 2011 follow-up, ‘Outlaws Like Me,’ which yielded yet another #1 single with “If Heaven Wasn’t So Far Away.” In 2014, Moore landed the coveted New Artist of the Year trophy at the ACM Awards after releasing his critically acclaimed third album, ‘Off The Beaten Path,’ and in 2016, he dropped ‘Kinda Don’t Care,’ his third consecutive #1 record. There’s more #1’s to come on his latest album ‘Late Nights and Longnecks.’
“Justin Moore is a Country Star, there’s no doubt”, says fair manager Scott Wick. “Adding him to our 2022 lineup is turning this fair into one of the most well-rounded grandstand events we’ve been able to offer. Anytime you can combine classic rock with old and new country, we have something for everybody and that’s our ultimate goal!”
With enough energy to blow the roof off any bar on Broadway and vocals that will stop any passerby, Julie Eddy is bound to leave an impression on anyone who sees her perform. As a full-time artist and songwriter, she has made a name for herself by wearing her heart in her lyrics and pairing them with melodies that stand the test of time. After hearing Eddy's unique sound, influenced by both the pop and country worlds, you will quickly learn that no topic is off limits and find nods to her life and the lives of her loved ones in every song she pens.
Julie started performing at an early age and spent most of her teen years singing for anyone who would listen, in any venue that would lend her a microphone. Born and raised in a small town in South Dakota, she played for bars, restaurants, weddings, and events in her hometown before landing a shot on bigger stages. Eddy's largest shows to date involve opening for award-winning artists including John King, Granger Smith, Brett Young, and Grammy-Award winning duo Dan + Shay.
There's no sign of Eddy slowing down any time soon. She has kept the momentum full-speed ahead when it comes to her own music, working with award-winning producer Ilya Toshinsky on her newest single "Denim", released June 24, 2022.
