An unforgettable night of country music is planned for the Du Quoin State Fair on Thursday, September 1. Together these two artists are credited with the creation of more than 13 albums and 17 million albums sold.  The Du Quoin State Fair is proud to welcome Aaron Lewis and Pat Green to southern Illinois.


Aaron Lewis is making a name for himself on the country charts.  His freelance work has led to the release of a solo album, The Road, which features Lewis’ powerful vocals and masterful acoustic guitar riffs.   Lewis is a Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum singer, songwriter and guitarist who has worked alongside country greats like Charlie Daniels and George Jones.


Lewis will share the stage with county mainstay, Pat Green.  Green is best known for his hit songs, “Wave on Wave,” and “Lucky Ones.”  He’s collaborated with country greats like Willie Nelson and Lyle Lovitt and toured with modern day hit makers like Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban.
