Lambert’s eighth solo album, Palomino, arrived in 2022 as the largest female country album debut of the year and earned a GRAMMY nomination for Best Country Album. Named among the best of the year by the New York Times, TIME, Rolling Stone, Billboard, People and many more, it marked the latest installment in a storied career that has spanned seven previous No. 1 solo albums, 11 No. 1 hit radio singles, more than 70 prestigious awards, earning the most-awarded artist in ACM history as well as praise from NPR as “the most riveting country star of her generation.”

“Miranda Lambert is a high-energy performer who will have everyone in the Illinois State Fair Grandstand singing along to her hit songs,” said Illinois State Fair Manager Rebecca Clark.

Lambert joins the Illinois State Fair on the heels of her headlining Velvet Rodeo Las Vegas residency at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino’s Bakkt Theater, which kicked off in late 2022 and will run through April.

Gavin Adcock is a 25-year-old Georgia native who recorded and released his first original single after recovering from a college football injury. He has since amassed hundreds of millions of streams, including his recent release, “A Cigarette,” which was streamed 30 million times in just a few short months. As he continues to write and record new music, he is hitting the road this summer with sold-out headline dates and multiple major festivals.
