SYRACUSE, NY — Fresh off the release of his highly anticipated debut solo album late last month, Tyler Hubbard of Florida Georgia Line has announced he will bring his summer tour to the Great New York State Fair. The country, singer-songwriter will perform on Tuesday, August 29 at 8:00 p.m. at the Chevy Park Experience Stage. Keeping with tradition, all concerts in the Chevrolet Music Series are free with Fair admission.
Hubbard’s solo career builds on tremendous success achieved in the last decade in the music industry. Now, one of the most recognizable voices in the industry, Hubbard first “cruised” onto radio waves in 2012 as the lead-singer of the popular, multi-platinum selling duo, Florida Georgia Line (FGL). Hubbard’s debut solo song, “5 Foot 9” is his 20th Number One hit, and right now, “Dancin’ In The Country” continues to climb the Country Top 30 and Billboard Top 200 music charts.
Hubbard says fans will get to know him in a more personal, deeper sense as he plays through his new songs, sharing his life’s stories. With songwriting credits on all tracks, Hubbard says the new music encapsulates who he has grown into as a husband, father of three and man of faith.
“We are over the moon to announce our first concert of the 2023 Great New York State Fair, and we’re even more excited that it is a veteran performer who fans have followed for a decade,” said Interim Fair Director Sean Hennessey. “We can’t wait to ‘dance in the country’ with Tyler Hubbard, and we look forward to announcing more concerts in the coming days and weeks!”
The upcoming August 29 performance is Hubbard’s third performance at the Great New York State Fair, and first as a solo artist. Faithful fairgoers may remember FGL’s debut at the Fair in 2013 – when they played to Chevy Court in the middle of a downpour. A year later, they returned to open for Jason Aldean at the Grandstand.
The 2023 Fair begins Wednesday, August 23, and continues through Monday, September 4. Music fans can expect at least two performances from national recording artists at The Fair’s major stages each day during the Fair. The Chevrolet Music Series schedule will feature daily 1:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. performances at Chevy Court (located near Gate 1), and 8:00 p.m. performances at the Chevy Park Experience Stage (located at the rear of the fairgrounds). On select days, there will be 2:00 p.m. performances at the Chevy Park Experience Stage.
All concerts in the Chevrolet Music Series are free with Fair admission. Tickets for adults will be $6. Admission is free for children 12 and under, and those 65 years old and older. As more concerts are announced, the Fair’s team will update schedules on the Fair’s website at pages dedicated to Chevy Park and Chevy Court.
Founded in 1841, the Great New York State Fair showcases the best of New York agriculture, provides top-quality entertainment and is a key piece of the state’s CNY Rising strategy of growing the Central New York economy through tourism.
