Lainey Wilson Coming to Fair

(La Porte County, IN) - One of the hottest rising superstars in country music is scheduled to perform during the 2023 La Porte County Fair. Lainey Wilson was announced today as the main act on July 12 in the grandstands.


Tickets start going on sale on Friday at 9 a.m.


Wilson has stormed into the country music scene with six nominations for Country Music Association Awards this year, in addition to being named the new female artist of the year for 2022. In her young career, Wilson has already recorded two No. 1 singles “Things a Man Ought to Know” and “Never Say Never.” Her current hit “Heart Like a Truck” is in the Top 25 and climbing. Wilson has also been performing for sold-out crowds in the U.S. and other countries like the United Kingdom and Germany.


La Porte County Fair Manager Don Stoner said the fair in recent years has focused more on booking the latest in hot new performers to attract more of a younger audience and stay within budget.  He said more established acts tend to be out of the fair’s price reach.


“We’re trying to make it to where we can afford these singers but still have some nice concerts coming,” he said.


Ticket prices are $25 for general admission; $30 for track seats; $35 for VIP track seats and $45 for the standing pit.
