The North Carolina State Fair is just a a little more than three months away and the organizers have just announced the full 2013 music lineup of Dorton Arena headliners on October 17-27 except for a single date which is still TBA.
This year's lineup is about as underwhelming as every other year but a portion of the schedule does resemble the Lincoln Theatre schedule a bit more than in previous years with the inclusion of Sister Hazel and the Michael Jackson tribute band Who's Bad.
Local American Idol alum Scotty McCreery will play two nights and other acts on the lineup are fellow country acts Joe Nichols, Randy Houser and Eli Young Band as well as bluegrass group Dailey & Vincent and as always a few Christian acts, this year Building 429, Francesca Battistelli and MercyMe.
Once the October 20 act is announced we'll let you know. Tickets for the shows will go on sale on Thursday, August 1, with prices ranging from $5 to $25.
[UPDATE: Country group Florida Georgia Line has just been announced as the performer on October 20. The show]
