PRINCETON — Eddie Montgomery of Montgomery Gentry is the headline concert act booked for the 165th Gibson County Fair this summer.

Montgomery performs at 8 p.m. July 10 at the fairgrounds in Princeton.

He recently released “Outskirts,” a seven-song EP. With 20 plus charted singles, the Kentucky native has earned CMA, ACM, and GRAMMY awards and nominations with blue collar anthems like “Hell Yeah,” “My Town,” and “Hillbilly Shoes.”

Five No. 1 singles include “If You Ever Stop Loving Me,” “Something To Be Proud Of,” “Lucky Man,” “Back When I Knew It All” and “Roll With Me.”

The group was inducted as Grand Ole Opry members in 2009 and inducted into the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame in 2015.

Admission to the fairgrounds for the concert is $7. For an additional $5, fair-goers can enter the area directly in front of the stage. There will also be a beer garden at the concert this year, said fair board president Charles Woodruff.
