[June 13, 2012]  The Logan County Fair has a great history of delivering exceptional talent each year for their grandstand show, and this year is no exception. Headlining the Friday night stage this year on Aug. 3 is country music star Jerrod Niemann.

Niemann is currently on a whirlwind tour that has him playing in Colorado, Pennsylvania, New York state and even Canada. Major venues on his tour include Wrigley Field, Detroit, Columbus and Cincinnati, Ohio, just to name a few of the cities where he will perform before coming to the Logan County Fair.

Niemann has recorded two independent albums. In 2006, he signed with Category 5 Records and charted with the single "I Love Women (My Momma Can't Stand)." He has also co-written three singles for Garth Brooks: the Chris LeDoux tribute "Good Ride Cowboy," as well as "That Girl Is a Cowboy" and "Midnight Sun." Jamey Johnson, Neal McCoy, Julie Roberts, Flynnville Train and Zona Jones have also recorded Niemann's songs.

In early 2010, Niemann signed to Arista Nashville's Sea Gayle division and released "Judge Jerrod & the Hung Jury," which includes the No. 1 single "Lover, Lover" and the top five hit "What Do You Want."

The band Mad Hoss Jackson from Mount Sterling will start the evening of high-caliber country music.
