The first single off the new album, "American Country Love Song," is on an ascent to Billboard's Top Ten, hitting the No.12 spot this week.  It sets the tone for the new LP that retains the Florida native's brand of carefree summery tunes but mixes it up with introspective songs of tough times in personal life.

Owen filmed a 360-degree virtual reality music video for the new single in February while driving from Nashville to Key West in his light green 1966 Volkswagen Microbus.  The song thrives on Americana images like the "Love Bus," as Owen refers to his VW classic, long neck beers and air-brushed T-shirts.  In fact, the tee the singer’s wearing in the video bears the likeness of this year's Grammy award winner Chris Stapleton, who is performing at the fair two days after Owen.
 

Tickets for this show go on sale to the public Friday, July 29, the day the multi‐platinum selling recording artist releases his fifth studio album, “American Love.”

America's # 1 Gold Record Award Winning Group of all time, KISS, is bringing its 2016 Summer American “Freedom To Rock” Tour to The Great Allentown Fair. KISS specifically wanted to take the "Freedom To Rock" Tour to its fans in markets that haven’t had the chance to see them in some time or ever at all.

The Lehigh Valley certainly qualifies. KISS has not performed here since 1992 and never before headlined the Allentown Fair although band founders Gene Simmons (bass guitar/co-lead vocals) and Paul Stanley (rhythm guitar/co-lead vocals) did bring their hot new recording group known for raucous, explosive stage shows to Ag Hall, the exhibition building on the Allentown Fairgrounds, in 1975. KISS came back to the Fairgrounds in June 1990, that time performing on the Grandstand stage as part of its Hot in the Shade Tour.

KISS can easily be named one of rock’s most influential bands. The Rock N Roll Hall of Famers have released 44 albums and sold more than 100 million albums worldwide. Four decades of celebrated rock anthems, incomparable stage productions and signature face make-up make KISS’s long-anticipated night at the Fair one for the ages not to be missed.

Tickets for KISS plus all-star rock group The Dead Daisies at The Great Allentown Fair are $83 and $63.

Chris Stapleton is country music's breakout star of the year winning the industry's most prestigious awards while reaching high heights not only country music charts, but for all genres.

In February he won Grammy Awards for Best Country Album of the Year and Best Country Solo Performance. His award winning debut album, "Traveller," was also the only country album up for the coveted all genre "Album of the Year" Grammy. Its title track was also up for Best Country Song of the year.

At the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards last November, Stapleton became the first artist to take home recognition for Album of the Year, Male Vocalist of the Year and New Artist of the Year all on one night. He leads the field of country artists with seven nominations for the upcoming Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards including Album of the Year, Song of the Year for "Nobody to Blame," Songwriter of the Year, and both Male Vocalist and New Male Vocalist of the Year.

Brothers Osborne, the country duo that received a Grammy nomination for their single "Stay A Little Longer" off their 2015 debut album "Pawn Shop," are opening for Chris Stapleton. The duo put bluesy slide guitar, country duets, southern rock solos and harmonies all together on "Pawn Shop" winning notice from Rolling Stone, Billboard, Spotify and other sources of "One's to Watch."

Tickets for Chris Stapleton at The Great Allentown Fair are $65 and $45.

The album's first single, "No," has already exploded into one of this rising star's biggest anthems yet. In less than a month, it received a RIAA Gold certification for sales exceeding 500,000 downloads, and it's swiftly nearing platinum status. In addition to remaining Top 5 on iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart since release, "NO" reached #1 on Billboard's Digital Songs Chart and #3 on the Hot 100-marking her fourth top 10 hit on that particular chart.

Trainor was a hit machine in 2015 with four singles from her debut album "Title" in the top 20 including the "All About That Bass," "Lips Are Movin," "Dear Future Husband" and "Like I'm Going to Lose You." Academy Award(r)-nominated actress and multiplatinum pop singer Hailee Steinfeld serves as direct support in addition to special guests Common Kings, a pop/rock group with a reggae/R&B twist.

Comedian ventriloquist Jeff Dunham is a global entertainment brand whose two decades of unparalleled success have left him one of the world's most recognizable and inventive entertainers.  This was certainly evident at The Great Allentown Fair where he broke records in 2009 selling 19,000 tickets over two nights prompting invitations to return in 2010, 2013 and now this year.   

Dunham recently launched his Perfectly Unbalanced arena tour, which has been selling out venues across the country and runs through 2016.  His past tours have proved his undeniable global appeal. He has been awarded Billboard's Top Comedy Tour for three years running (an award based solely on box office sales), and Guinness World Records recently named Jeff Dunham as the world record holder for "Most Tickets Sold for a Stand-up Comedy Tour." 

Audiences of his live performances sit in gleeful anticipation of Dunham's zany characters being pulled from their trunk.  Grumpy old Walter, José Jalapeño on a Stick, Peanuts, Little Jeff , the incomparable no skin-just bones Achmed the Dead Terrorist and others have become familiar verbal sparring partners of a ventriloquist that started his craft at the age eight.  Dunham’s shows are not only hysterically funny, his fans find his artistry animating the life-like puppets he created and his talent giving them voice truly amazing.  

Tickets for Jeff Dunham at The Great Allentown Fair are $53 and $33.
