South Dakota State Fair Announces Lady A to Play at 2022 State Fair
HURON, S.D. –The South Dakota State Fair and Legend Seeds welcome Lady A to perform at the SD State Fair grandstand on Sunday, September 4.
Over the course of their decade-plus career, Lady A’s Charles Kelley, Dave Haywood, and Hillary Scott, have become one of the 21st century’s premier vocal groups, blending deeply felt emotions with classic country sounds. As a country-radio staple, the trio has
amassed record-breaking success ushering in 10 number one hits with more than 18 million album units and 34 million tracks sold and nearly 5 billion digital streams.
Known for their nine-time platinum hit “Need You Now”, the highest certified song by a country group, they have earned ACM and CMA Vocal Group of the Year trophies three years in a row and countless other honors including seven GRAMMY awards, Billboard Music Awards, People’s Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards, and a Tony Award nod.
Other Lady A hits include “Love Don’t Live Here”, “Lookin’ for a Good Time”, “I Run to You”, “American Honey”, and “Downtown”.
Lady A continues to emerge with a new refined vision, as the full release of their eighth studio album What A Song Can Do is out now. Written as a love letter to fans, What A Song Can Do feels like a reawakening for the three who “also found a deeper meaning to what they do.” “This song is the summation of where our hearts are right now and how much music can really pull us through in times of need. We love writing songs about lost love and things like that, but I feel like our favorite material comes with a strong positive message,” says Kelley about the title-track.
“Bringing this caliber of entertainment to the fair raises the excitement level! Lady A has many accolades, so we can’t wait to host them at the fair, and see their live performance,” said Peggy Besch, SD State Fairgrounds manager.
