The 2017 run of the Stanislaus County Fair will kick-off with a performance from country superstar LeAnn Rimes.

“We are thrilled to have LeAnn Rimes back at the Stanislaus County Fair,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “Her music and breathtaking voice is loved by fans of all ages.”

Rimes is an internationally acclaimed singer and American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers award-winning songwriter. She recently signed a worldwide deal with Radio Corporation of America UK who just released her 16th studio album, “Remnants,” in October. The first single, “The Story,” was released in the UK during the summer of 2016. The album is scheduled for release in the United States in February.

Globally, she has sold more than 44 million units, won two Grammy® Awards; 12 Billboard Music Awards; two World Music Awards; three Academy of Country Music Awards; one Country Music Association Award and one Dove Award.

At 14, Rimes won "Best New Artist” making her the youngest recipient of a Grammy® Award. Her debut album “Blue,” celebrates the 20th anniversary of its release this year. Out of the 42 singles she has released throughout her expansive career, her song "How Do I Live," ranks #4 on Billboard’s “Greatest of All Time: Hot 100 Songs,” and it holds the record for being the second longest charting song ever on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

Rimes will perform at 8:30 p.m. July 14 on the Bud Light Variety Free Stage. The concert is free with the price of fair admission.
