He won new artist of the year at the 2012 Country Music Association Awards and is nominated for three Grammys, including Best New Artist and Best Country Album.

Fellow country act The Band Perry is the only other act announced, playing the fair on July 13.

Tickets for the grandstand shows are free with paid gate admission, $8 for adults, $4 for ages 6-11 is $4 and children 5 and under are free.

The 2013 Red River Valley Fair will be held July 9-14, 2013, in West Fargo, North Dakota.
