American Idol alum Lauren Alaina will perform at the Warren County Fair on Aug. 11.

According to a fair news release, Alaina appeared on season 10 of American Idol. Her first album, “Road Less Traveled,” was released on Jan. 27 and  was selected as one of Rolling Stone’s Most Anticipated Albums of 2017.

Dennis Grove, entertainment chair for the Warren County Fair, said the fair booked Alaina after she was recommended to him during a convention he was attending.

“It would be a good attraction for the fair,” he said of her performance.

Alaina has been nominated for multiple Teen Choice Awards and CMT Music Awards. She also received her first Academy of Country Music nomination for New Female Vocalist of the Year. She has shared the stage with stars Alan Jackson and Carrie Underwood, and she is on the “Love Unleashed Tour” with Martina McBride. She will be touring with Luke Bryan this summer in the  “Huntin’, Fishin’, and Lovin’ Every Day Tour.”

Grove said they are hopeful that over 2,000 people will attend the much-anticipated show this August.

Alaina will perform at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 11. Tickets go on sale May 1 online at www.warrencountyfair.com. The stage area will be blocked off with admission of $25 for reserved seating and $20 for general admission. Gate admission to the fairgrounds of $5 is not included in those costs.
