Dustin Lynch to Headline 2017 Allen County Fair with Opening Act Neal McCoy
Dustin Lynch is taking over the country music scene and will be headlining Saturday, August 19 at the Allen County Fair. The stats don’t lie. With three consecutive No. 1s, two Top 5 albums, platinum-level sales and back-to back summers on one of the biggest tours in country music, Dustin has been on a steady path toward superstardom. But now with the release of “Seein’ Red,” the Broken Bow recording artist is shifting into high gear.
The show will open with Neal McCoy who’s sold over 6 million records during his historic career in country music. Number one singles include Wink, You Gotta Love That, as well as the popular The Shake and Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On.
“The Board of Directors have again stepped up to present the best country music has to offer. This mega show will be a night to remember. We’re ecstatic to have these groups performing at the 2017 Allen County Fair”, said General Manager, Bob Fricke.

The first single from Lynch’s current album, “Seein’ Red” is a fist-pumping blast of intensity full of flirtatious heat and tangled-up passion, and the next step in the Tennessee native’s evolution. He’s already been to the top of the charts with traditional country (“Cowboys and Angels”), party-rockers (“Where It’s At (Yep, Yep),” “Hell of a Night”) and simmering romance (“Mind Reader”), now he’s adding raw, animal attraction to the mix. Lynch is building on what he knows and keeping his eyes on the ultimate prize. If “Seein’ Red” is any indication, he won’t have to wait long. “I want to be the ACM and CMA entertainer of the year. … For me now, it’s all about trying to outdo myself.”
Neal McCoy has released fifteen studio albums on various labels, and has released 34 singles to country radio. He has been on 15 USO Tours around the world and continues to say it’s one of the achievements he’s most proud of. The two-time Entertainer of the Year will provide his customary high energy performance for concert fans to enjoy.
