    Due to the postponement of the 2020 Iowa State Fair, Sam Hunt with Kip Moore for the 2020 Iowa State Fair Grandstand concert Saturday, August 22, 2020, has been rescheduled for Saturday, August 14, 2021. All previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled date and a new ticket is not needed.

    Sam Hunt - Multi-Platinum-selling, award-winning hitmaker Sam Hunt recently introduced fans to his new song, “Kinfolks”- already Top 5 at country radio. Leaning on the sentiment of “you can’t make old friends,” Hunt exemplifies the importance of bringing a new relationship into the mix and comfortability of home. “Kinfolks” follows Hunt’s GRAMMY-nominated, Triple-Platinum-selling debut album, Montevallo (MCA Nashville), which topped the Billboard Country Albums Chart in its first week and it remains the best-selling debut album for a country artist since 2011; and his three-week No. 1, 6x Platinum-selling, GRAMMY-nominated smash, “Body Like A Back Road.”

    Called “stylistically provocative” by The New York Times and “deceptively phenomenal” by The Washington Post, Hunt has received accolades from Associated Press, Billboard, Los Angeles Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, SPIN Magazine, Village Voice, The New York Times,The Washington Post and more. Since the Montevallo’s 2014 release, Hunt has accumulated over 6.85 billion global streams and has earned 22 million RIAA certified units. Hunt is currently in the studio finishing up a new project expected in the new year. For information on Sam Hunt, visit www.SamHunt.com.

    Kip Moore - Multi-PLATINUM singer/songwriter Kip Moore’s “pulsing” (Billboard) new single “She’s Mine” is currently rising at country radio and is taken from his upcoming fourth studio album, of which more details will be revealed soon. The forthcoming project follows his ROOM TO SPARE: THE ACOUSTIC SESSIONS EP which sparked his “wildly successful” (Chicago Tribune) sold-out acoustic tour and his third studio album SLOWHEART, which garnered instant praise from critics as his “most complete, cohesive declaration of his artistic sensibilities yet” (NPR), as well landing on multiple “Best Of” lists including Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, UpRoxx, Bobby Bones Show and many more. SLOWHEART included Moore’s fourth No. One single and follows the critical acclaim that surrounded Moore’s sophomore album WILD ONES and his PLATINUM debut album UP ALL NIGHT that spawned three No. One hit singles. Next up, CMA “International Artist Achievement Award” nominee Kip Moore will hit the road for another international trek, returning to his Australian fan base in 2020 for headlining arena dates in Melbourne, AU on 3/17 and Sydney, AU on 3/18. Moore will also headline Australia’s premiere Country music festival, CMC Rocks QLD 2020, taking place in Willowbank, AU 3/20-3/22.
