Young Country Artist Takes Stage At 2020 Stanislaus Fair
Hunter Hayes

Hunter Hayes wants to make you feel “Wanted” as he takes the stage at the 2020 Stanislaus County Fair this summer.

A talented and young country artist, Hayes will perform on Monday, July 13 at the Fair, appearing on the Coors Light Variety Free Stage at 8:30 p.m. The concert is hosted by KAT Country 103.3 and is free with the price of Fair admission.

“This summer will be filled with artists that will rock our main stage and Hunter Hayes will bring his country charisma to our Fair,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair.

Hayes has done things in a big way since he stepped onto the national stage in 2011 when Warner Music Nashville released his debut single, “Storm Warning,” months before he turned 20. Setting a precedent in country, he co-wrote every song on his first major-label album, sang every vocal part and played every instrument, including some preternatural guitar solos that demonstrated the depth of his abilities.

That self-titled project and his sophomore album, Storyline, both topped the Billboard country albums chart while three of his singles – “Wanted,” “Somebody’s Heartbreak” and “I Want Crazy” (the latter appearing on the Deluxe edition of his debut) – went to No. 1 on various charts. Seven titles earned gold or platinum honors from the Recording Industry Association of America, with Hunter Hayes hitting the double-platinum mark and “Wanted” achieving five-times-platinum status. He snagged five Grammy nominations and won the Country Music Association’s New Artist of the Year trophy.

The 2020 Stanislaus County Fair opens Friday, July 10 for a 10-day run. Discounted Fair admission tickets, unlimited ride wristbands, and the Fair season pass will be on sale beginning Saturday, April 25, 2020. Corporate ticket sales will also be available to purchase at a highly discounted rate. Visit the Fair’s website for upcoming ticket sale information at
