One of country music’s rising stars will make his New York State Fair debut on Wednesday, Aug. 25. Russell Dickerson will take over the Chevy Court stage for a 7 p.m. performance.
Dickerson’s first four singles have gone to number one on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart. He is touring in support of his second LP Southern Symphony which was released in December 2020.
Prior to COVID Dickerson was something of a road warrior, criss-crossing the country opening tours for Thomas Rhett, Lady A, Keith Urban and Kane Brown among others.
Dickerson played the very last concert that I attended prior to the shutdown. On March 6, 2020, he played to a sold-out Times Union Center as part of Kane Brown’s “Worldwide Beautiful” tour. The very next day, a state of emergency was declared and all live music in New York State was shelved.
Now live music is not only back, it is thriving. This concert is part of a lineup of more than 50 national touring shows presented in the Chevrolet Music Festival, the largest free music festival at any state fair in America. Admission is free with a $3 Fair admission. Get there early.
