Savannah Jack will also be featured on the fairgrounds throughout the week.
Saturday, August 10th – The Offspring with Chevelle
Saturday, August 10th, will rock as The Offspring take the stage with Chevelle. It will be two and one half hours of great music. Offspring recently released a new album, Days Go By featuring the top 10 title single “Days Go By.” The Offspring are known for their many hits including “Self Esteem,” “Come Out And Play (Keep ‘Em Separated),” “The Kids Aren’t Alright,” and “You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid.” Up before Offspring will be Chevelle who released their latest album, Stray Arrow: A Collection Of Hits last December. The group last played the Rimrock Auto Arena in August of 2009 with Shinedown and others.
Sunday, August 11th – Hunter Hayes with Gloriana
Sunday evening August 11th will feature Hunter Hayes with Gloriana to round out the slate of MontanaFair concerts. Hunter Hayes was honored as the Country Music Association’s New Artist Of The Year in 2012. Hunter was the opener for Carrie Underwood in February of 2013 here in Billings and seemed to draw his own following. In discussions with G.M. Dutcher that evening, he was thrilled when he realized he’d be a headliner at this year’s MontanaFair. Hunter’s music includes hits such as “Wanted,” “Storm Warning,” and his latest single release, “I Want Crazy”. This will be Gloriana’s second appearance at MontanaFair as they opened for Trace Adkins in August of 2009. Gloriana released their critically acclaimed second studio album, A Thousand Miles Left Behind, in the summer of 2012 and it debuted at #2 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and at #10 on Billboard’s Top 200. Their current single, “Can’t Shake You,” from that album, has also done well on the charts.
