Tracy Lawrence at Missouri State Fair 2024

 The Missouri State Fair today announced the fifth concert of the 2024 State Fair concert series.

Country music artists Tracy Lawrence with Ruby Leigh will perform on Tuesday, Aug. 13 as part of the State Fair Grandstand, presented by CFM Insurance, concert series at the 2024 Missouri State Fair.

With 13M albums sold and 18 No.1 singles, Tracy Lawrence has solidified his status as a cornerstone of Country music for more than thirty years. Yet even as he continues to release music and tour, the CMA and ACM award winner’s ambitions have also extended to numerous media and charity projects. In recent years, Lawrence has hosted the radio show “Honky Tonkin’ with Tracy Lawrence,” which
currently airs in more than 170 markets. His interest in working with younger artists and being able to explore different topics led to the “TL’s Road House” podcast, which has featured such guests as HARDY, Jelly Roll and Lainey Wilson.

Over three decades into his decorated career, Lawrence’s legacy continues to evolve. With plans to join Riley Green’s Ain’t My Last Rodeo Tour this spring, and his first-ever headlining show at the Ryman, he is poised for a monumental year ahead. After revisiting his catalog with the Hindsight 2020 Vol 1, 2 and 3 and Live at Billy Bob’s Texas albums, Lawrence is gearing up to release his Out Here In It EP, set to arrive on June 7. Meanwhile, Lawrence continues to uphold his commitment to helping those in need across Middle Tennessee and beyond with his Mission:Possible non-profit committed to serving the homeless. Since its humble beginnings cooking Thanksgiving dinners for the Nashville Rescue Mission to frying over 84,000 turkeys to date, the organization has raised more than $1M for those in need In recognition of his philanthropic efforts, Lawrence was honored with the 2023 CRS Humanitarian Award.

Ruby Leigh is a 16-year-old self-taught singer from Foley, Missouri, a small 68-person town.

Despite coming from a non-musical family, Ruby Leigh found her voice at nine-and-a-half-years-old and knew she had a gift from God, She knew her life’s journey would be in the music industry! She started her career at an open competition karaoke contest at nine-and-a-half-years-old and sang a capella against the all-adult field ending up in 3rd place! After that day she went on a streak winning everything she entered – local, regional, national and even international competitions. Recently she made it through the long audition process to have a chance for a blind audition for NBC’s “The Voice” where she quickly turned all four chairs and continued undefeated until the final round where she came up less than one percent short of the title! Ruby Leigh is the only artist to go viral on the show and she did that twice. Her audition is the highest viewed in the show’s history! Not too bad for a self-taught Missouri Girl!

Tickets to this show are $40 and $35 and will go on sale to the public starting at 9 a.m., May 21 through Etix. More information about State Fair concerts can be found on the Fair’s website.
