The first major country artist has been announced for the Illinois State Fair.

Maren Morris will hit the Grandstand Stage this year at the Illinois State Fair on Saturday, August 19. The announcement was just made on the Illinois State Fair Facebook Page. 

No information on when tickets will be on sale was given, but I can't imagine that it will happen sooner than later. This is also the first of many concert announcements that will be coming in the next few weeks for the Illinois State Fair. So, who's next? Well, we are not sure but we will keep you updated on who will be coming to the fair this summer.
