Justin Moore and Ned LeDoux Added to SD State Fair Grandstand Line Up


HURON, S.D. –The South Dakota State Fair, a division of the South Dakota Department of Agriculture, announces Justin Moore with opening act Ned LeDoux will perform at the grandstand on Sunday, Sept. 3, 2017.


Justin Moore hit the country music scene with the release of his self-titled debut album in 2009. He spent three years putting together his fourth and most recent album “Kinda Don’t Care.” The project is chock-full of new music and landed him his third consecutive number one album debut in the summer of 2016. His latest single, “Somebody Else Will” has been hitting the charts hard as a fan favorite to kick off 2017. He also has the #1 singles, “Small Town USA,” “Lettin’ the Night Roll” and “You Look Like I Need a Drink.”


For the last year, Ned LeDoux has been touring and opening for acts like Toby Keith, Chris Janson and Randy Houser. LeDoux’s favorite song to sing, “You Can’t Tell Me We Ain’t Got It All,” is one he co-wrote with his father Chris LeDoux, who passed away over ten years ago.


“Justin Moore caps off a solid trio of headliners for the concerts at the fair this year,” said assistant SD State Fairgrounds manager Candi Briley. “Moore has some great #1 singles and is a top contender in today’s country music scene. Add Ned LeDoux as the opening act and we are absolutely excited for what this year will bring. Pair these two shows with what we already have and it’s going to be a fantastic year. Once the rest of our support acts are in place, our concert line-up will be complete.” (***Download Briley audio here***)
