ELKHART COUNTY FAIR: Vince Gill to headline concert series

Florida Georgia Line, Hunter Hayes, Jason Crabb and Creedence Clearwater Revisited also performing

GOSHEN — Country, classic rock and Christian performers will highlight this year’s Elkhart County 4-H Fair concert series.

Creedence Clearwater Revisited will perform the first Saturday of the fair. Jason Crabb will take the stage Sunday night, followed by Florida Georgia Line on Monday, Vince Gill on Tuesday and Hunter Hayes Wednesday.

Showtime is 8 p.m. for all concerts. Reserved track seating is $25 for all shows except the Jason Crabb performance, with tickets priced at $15. Grandstand seating is free to all shows with gate admission.

Creedence Clearwater Revisited

Creedence Clearwater Revisited is an offshoot of Creedence Clearwater Revival, which charted several roots-rock hits in the late 1960s and early ’70s.

Of the classic CCR line-up, Revisited contains Stu Cook (bass) and Doug “Cosmo” Clifford (drums). Of the original crew, Tom Fogerty is deceased and John Fogerty long ago left the fold.

Creedence’s classic tunes include “Proud Mary,” “Bad Moon Rising,” “Down on the Corner,” “Who’ll Stop the Rain?,” “Fortunate Son,” “Born on the Bayou” and “Up Around the Bend.”

Jacob Crabb

Jason Crabb was the longtime lead vocalist for The Crabb Family, and appeared regularly in the Gaither Homecoming Series videos. The Grammy- and 17-time Dove Award-winning artist pursued a solo career in 2007. His second studio album, “Love is Stronger,” was released in March.

“I love singing with my family,” Crabb said. “So it was always good to travel with them, and they remain some of my closest friends today. We approached our music as a team, which was effective, and I am so grateful for all we did as a family but there was always this sense of ‘I’ve got so much more in here that I want to get out of me.’”

“...I didn’t really know how it would turn out,” he said of his solo turn. “But I just relied on the truth I’d known for many years: ‘The songs pick you. And once they do, if you just let the song be the song, you will know what to do with it. You’ll know where to take it to best connect with the audience.”

Florida Georgia Line

Florida Georgia Line has a new album titled “Here’s to the Good Times.” The country duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have also enjoyed chart-topping success with the No. 1 hit “Cruise.”

“It’s safe to say it’s been a real whirlwind for us,” Hubbard said via the group’s website. “It’s been awesome.”

“It’s a dream come true,” Kelley added, “although it still kind of feels like yesterday that were writing the first couple of songs on the back of Tyler’s tailgate.”

Kelley and Hubbard met when they were students at Nashville’s Belmont University. Their musical partnership has paid off: In addition to Florida Georgia Line’s chart success, the duo has garnered Academy of Country Music Awards for Best New Artist and Best New Country Duo.

Vince Gill

Vince Gill is the former lead singer for Pure Prairie League, with whom he scored a Top Ten pop hit with “Let Me Love You Tonight” in 1980. At one point, he turned down an offer from Mark Knopfler to join Dire Straits.

Then there’s the rest of his career.

Gill has sold more than 26 million albums. He’s earned 18 Country Music Association Awards, including Entertainer of the Year in 1993 and 1994.  

Gill is tied with George Strait for winning the most CMA Male Vocalist Awards (five). As of this writing, he’s second only to Brooks and Dunn for garnering the most CMA awards in that group’s history. In 2007, he was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.

Gill’s hit songs include “When I Call Your Name,” “Never Knew Lonely,” “Look at Us,” “I Still Believe in You,” “Don’t Let Our Love Start Slippin’ Away,” “If You Have Forever in Mind” and “A Little More Love.”

Hunter Hayes

Hunter Hayes was named the Country Music Association’s Best New Artist for 2012. He started on the musical road long before that.

Hayes, a Louisiana native, started picking up musical instruments at the age of 2. When he was around 4, he played “Jambalaya” onstage with Hank Williams Jr. As a 6-year-old, he was cast in the Robert Duvall film “The Apostle.” Duvall also gave the young Hayes his first guitar.

Hayes wrote or co-wrote all the songs on his album “Hunter Hayes,” and played all the instruments. Hits from that album include “Storm Warning,” “Wanted” and “Somebody’s Heartbreak.”

In the flush of success, Hayes sounds like a young man committed to his craft.

“With me, it’s always going to be music,” he said. “That’s the one thing I know. That is my thing. That is my place. I make music because it’s the only way I can breathe. This is how I want to spend the rest of my life.”

Poll

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
