The fair manager says LoCash Cowboys was supposed to open tonight for Jake Owen, but the band cancelled after a lead singer flew home for the birth of his first child. LoCash Cowboys was replaced with Jake Owen. Local band Heroes and Thieves became the opening act.

“When things like this happen they've never happened since I've been here and this is my third year. We just run with it we know that we got some local bands that are great opening acts.”

Right now, attendance is slightly below last years mark.
