The Winneshiek County Fair’s five-night lineup of grandstand entertainment was announced last week and will be headlined by the country music band “Little Texas” at 7 p.m. Wednesday, July 10.

Since 1988, Little Texas has been touring the United States, sometimes playing in more than 300 shows per year.

The group’s first album featured five singles to reach the top of the charts. Their second album, “Big Time,” sold more than 3 million copies and spawned three No. 1 singles — “What Might Have Been,” “God Blessed Texas,” and “My Love.”

Over the years Little Texas has toured both on its own and with Clint Black, Travis Tritt, Tim McGraw, and Trisha Yearwood.

Other featured events during the July 9-13 fair include Bill Riley’s Iowa State Talent Search at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 9; Upper Iowa Speedway stock car races at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 11; the Tri-State Truck & Tractor Pull at 6 p.m. Friday, July 12; and CC Bull Riding and Barrel Racing at 7 p.m. Saturday, July 13.

Grandstand entertainment buttons will go on sale for $16 each in May. The price will increase to $20 each during the fair. Buttons are good for admission to all five shows.
