Lee Brice has been announced to headline entertainment at the Ionia Free Fair on Thursday, July 20.

Brice first garnered attention in Nashville in 2007 as a co-writer of Garth Brooks' #1 smash "More Than a Memory". He signed a recording contract with Curb Records that same year, and before the decade ended, Brice would chart his very first Top 10 single as a solo artist, 2009's "Love Like Crazy".

In the years since, Brice has collected eight #1 songs on the US Country Airplay Chart, including "A Woman Like You" in 2011; "Hard to Love" and "I Drive Your Truck" in 2012; "I Don't Dance" in 2014; "Rumor" in 2018; "I Hope You're Happy Now" (a duet with Carly Pearce) in 2019; and "One of Them Girls" and "Memory I Don't Mess With" in 2020.

Brice's special guest for this show will be Tyler Farr. Farr's a frequent co-writer of Brice's, but has a few chart hits of his own, including 2013's "Redneck Crazy" and "Whiskey in My Water"; and 2014's "A Guy Walks Into a Bar", which went all the way to the top of the US Country Airplay chart.

McBryde's debut single "A Little Dive Bar in Dahlonega" has also been certified gold, with her 2019 hit "One Night Standards" going platinum.

Tickets for this show range from $35 to $60, and can be purchased here.
