GOSHEN — The first glimpse into next summer's Elkhart County 4-H Fair came Wednesday night when fair officials announced Josh Turner as the first confirmed grandstand act.
Turner will perform on the main stage Tuesday, July 24, at 8 p.m.
The deep-voiced 34-year-old singer has sold more than five million albums and recorded several hits that reached number one on the country charts, including “Your Man,” “Would You Go With Me,” “All Over Me” and “Why Don't We Just Dance.”
Turner has been inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.
“I don't ever want to take anything for granted,” Turner said in biographical information released by the fair. “I've learned from certain people that it takes a lot of hard work, passion and love for what you do to have longevity in this career.”
Tickets for reserved track seats won't go on sale until March, and fair officials aren't sure on the cost of the seats yet, but will later provide seat costs and the date they'll go on sale.
Like all shows, grandstand seating is free on a first-come, first-served basis.
Over the coming months fair organizers will announce the other four main stage acts for the 2012 fair.
