(PASO ROBLES, CA) – The California Mid-State Fair is pleased to announce that Uncle Kracker has been confirmed to perform at the 2020 California Mid-State Fair on Thursday, July 30 at 8:00 PM. The concert will take place on the Frontier Stage and will be included with paid Fair admission.
After vaulting to stardom as a charismatic presence and chief collaborator in Kid Rock’s Twisted Brown Trucker Band, the Michigan singer, songwriter, and performer, also known as kicked off a stunning solo career of his own. His 2000 major label debut, Double Wide, fittingly went double-platinum and yielded #1 smash “Follow Me”. Its 2002 follow-up No Stranger To Shame reached gold status and spawned cross-format hits such as “In A Little While” and the powerful cover of Dobie Gray’s “Drift Away” which set a Billboard record for most weeks at #1 on any chart, topping their #1 run on the Adult Contemporary radio charts for a staggering 28 weeks.
Before Uncle Kracker flew up the charts for 5 weeks at #1 with “When the Sun Goes Down”, a duet with good friend Kenny Chesney, country music might’ve seemed an odd place to find the Detroit-based good-time Kid Rock alumni. But after a few summer tours with Chesney, Uncle Kracker reached country’s Top 10 with his double-platinum crossover hit “Smile”. 2012 saw him fully embrace his country side with his critically acclaimed fifth outing, Midnight Special.
Uncle Kracker has played sold out shows across the country and appeared everywhere from the American Country Music Awards to Late Night With Conan O'Brien. Uncle Kracker will be showcasing his tried and true hits along with some new tunes in sheds across the country.
The 2020 California Mid-State Fair runs July 22 – August 2 and this year we’re celebrating our 75th Anniversary. Connect with us on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat and YouTube.
