Eric Church/with Special Guest Jackson Dean

  • Overview

    Eric Church: A seven-time ACM Award winner, four-time CMA Award winner (including the 2020 award for Entertainer of the Year) and 10-time GRAMMY nominee, Church has amassed a passionate fan-base around the globe known as the Church Choir as well as a critically acclaimed catalog of music. Church last performed on the Iowa State Fair Grandstand way back in 2006 with Brad Paisley and in 2007 with Gary Allan. 2023 will be the first time Eric Church will headline on the Iowa State Fair Grandstand.

    Jackson Dean is quickly earning a reputation for his old school, gritty, lyric-driven, outlaw style of country. The Maryland native’s single “Don’t Come Lookin’” was the fastest debut to reach No. 1 in 2022 and cemented Jackson as the youngest solo male country artist to reach the top of the charts with a debut. Jackson has joined superstar acts like Toby Keith, Miranda Lambert, Brantley Gilbert, Kane Brown, Jake Owen, Brooks & Dunn, Lee Brice and Brothers Osborne, Blake Shelton and Carly Pearce. The Iowa State Fair is fortunate to have him join Eric Church on the biggest stage at the Fair in 2023.
