John Michael Montgomery to Headline Antelope County Fair

ans of country music won’t have to travel far from home to hear one of the best.

John Michael Montgomery has been signed by the Antelope County Fair Board to perform at the 2010 County Fair in Neligh.

The show will be Friday night, Aug. 6, at Riverside Park in front of the grandstand under the stars. Montgomery will take the stage at 8 p.m. As of press time, no opening act had been signed. Tickets will go on sale at a later date.

According to information collected from his personal website, Montgomery has turned an uncanny ability to relate to fans into one of country music’s most storied careers. Behind the string of hit records, the roomful of awards and the critical and fan accolades that have defined his phenomenal success lies a connection that goes beyond his undeniable talent and his proven knack for picking hits. 

Since the days when “Life’s A Dance” turned him from an unknown artist into a national star, John Michael’s rich baritone has carried that most important of assets–believability. Few artists in any genre sing with more heart than this handsome Kentucky-born artist. 

It is readily apparent in love songs that have helped set the standard for a generation. Songs like “I Swear,” “I Love the Way You Love Me” and “I Can Love You Like That” still resonate across the landscape.
