Up and coming country artist Thomas Rhett will be performing at this year’s Grays Harbor County Fair.
Known for his songs, “It Goes Like This,” “Something to Do with My Hands” and “Beer with Jesus,” Rhett will perform at the fair at 8 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 6. The county will sell “golden circle” tickets for the event closer to fair time.
The county commissioners approved a contract to bring Rhett to the fair for $45,000, which Fair Director Mike Bruner called a “bargain,” since he has multiple chart-topping hits and would probably soon be charging twice as much in the coming months.
“We really lucked out and wanted to get him signed before he changed his mind,” Bruner said. “I really think this is going to be one of our busiest days at the fair, drawing people from all over the region to see him.”
The county will solicit sponsorships to cover part of the costs for the concert.
