Ford County Fair Board does it again…big-name country music act set for summer fair

The 2014 Ford County Fair at Melvin has reeled in yet another high-profile country music act.

The fair recently announced on its Facebook page that it has secured the band Parmalee as a headliner for the concert it will host at 7 p.m. Tuesday, June 24, at the fairgrounds in Melvin.

This year's event follows last year's appearance by country music star Dustin Lynch.

Parmalee is a semifinalist for 2014 New Artist of the Year at next month's Academy of Country Music Awards.
Fair Board president Kirk Miller said "We're excited with who we've got. They're an up-and-coming name in Nashville, and I think the people in Ford County and surrounding areas will be happy with the show we put on for them."

Miller said the fair board is still trying to secure a second big-name band to co-headline this summer's concert.
Tickets will be on sale in advance of the concert, but not until the fair determines the complete lineup.
