The Stanislaus County Fair will be welcoming country music star Kellie Pickler to the stage of the fair's 10-day run.
Pickler will perform on the Bud Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m. July 15. The concert, hosted by KAT Country, is free with the price of fair admission.
Pickler first came to the attention of country music fans when she became one of the featured finalists on the fifth season of "American Idol."
Pickler grew up immersed in country music in the small town of Albemarle, North Carolina with the words of Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton shaping her musical footing.
Pickler has gone on to release four critically acclaimed albums, including her Gold-certified debut "Small Town Girl" as well as "100 Proof," which Rolling Stone named the Best Country Album of 2011. Among her best known hits are the Gold-certified "Red High Heels," "I Wonder," and "Best Days of Your Life."
The Stanislaus County Fair will begin their 10-day run on July 8.
