The Great Jones County Fair is going on in Monticello this week. The fair is widely-known for attracting superstars in country music and this year is no exception. The concerts kick off tonight with reigning Female Vocalist of the Year Miranda Lambert returning to the Great Jones County Fair with opening act Tyler Farr.
Friday night’s concert has been one of the most highly-anticipated concerts in recent years. Reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year Luke Bryan comes to Monticello for a sold out show with opening act Lee Brice.
Rocker Kid Rock will take the stage Saturday night, with opening act Gunnar and the Grizzly Boys. And Christian music artist Chris Tomlin will perform Sunday night, with opening act Colton Dixon. Along with the hyped-up concerts, there’s also some excitement surrounding this year’s fair races. The Hughes brothers – Gus and Rich – have taken over the promotion and organization of Saturday’s stock car races and Sunday’s demolition derby at this year’s Great Jones County Fair.
And new royalty was crowned earlier this week. Kelli Jo Welter of Monticello was named the Great Jones County Fair Queen Tuesday night. For information on all of these week’s events, check out greatjonescountyfair.com.
