Additional Information

The Sioux Empire Fair is pleased to announce that the CHARLIE DANIELS BAND will be performing at the 74th Annual Sioux Empire Fair on Tuesday, August 6 as part of the Grandstand Concert Series.

CHARLIE DANIELS' resume includes recording sessions with artists as diverse as Bob Dylan, Flatt & Scruggs, Pete Seeger, Mark O'Connor, Leonard Cohen and Ringo Starr. His songs have been recorded by Elvis Presley and Tammy Wynette.

In the summer of 1979 Daniels delivered "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," which became a Platinum single, topped both country and pop charts, won a Grammy Award, became an international phenomenon, earned three Country Music Association trophies, became a cornerstone of the Urban Cowboy movie soundtrack and propelled Daniels' Million Mile Reflections album to Triple Platinum sales levels.

When you hear a classic CHARLIE DANIELS BAND performance like "The Devil Went Down to Georgia," you hear music that knows no clear genre. Is it a folk tale? A southern boogie? A country fiddle tune? An electric rock anthem? The answer is, "yes" to all of that and more. And the same goes for "In America," "Uneasy Rider," "The South's Gonna Do It," "Long Haired Country Boy," "Still in Saigon," "The Legend of Wooley Swamp," and the rest of a catalog that spans 50 years of record making and represents more than 20 million in sales.

We are excited to announce that the CHARLIE DANIELS BAND concert will be FREE with paid fair admission. No confusing seating. No confusing ticket prices. FREE with paid fair admission, pure and simple. The CHARLIE DANIELS BAND joins Hunter Hayes, Kip Moore, Creedence Clearwater Revisited, and Hairball as part of the 2013 Grandstand Concert Series.
