The recent Academy of Country Music award winner formed in 2016 in Dripping Springs, Texas, with Mark Wystrach on vocals, Cameron Duddy on bass guitar and background vocals, and Jess Carson on guitar and background vocals.

Wystrach also is an actor and model and Duddy is a music video director.

The band has released the album “On the Rocks” which has three charted singles on the country music charts: “Drinkin’ Problem,” “Make a Little,” and “Burn Out.”

Country music trailblazer Granger Smith will perform at 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 2.

Smith took the No. 1 spot on the iTunes country album chart with “Remington,” which was released in March 2016. Since then, he has sold out national tours and has a social media following of more than 6.5 million.

The album, produced by Smith and Frank Rogers, features the hit single “Backroad Song,” which landed the No. 1 spot at country radio (Billboard Country Airplay, Mediabase and Music Row charts). Granger also received a BMI Country Award for writing, producing, publishing (Climbing Windmills) and performing “Backroad Song.” The follow up smash, “If The Boot Fits,” reached the Top 5.

“With Granger Smith headlining an evening of entertainment that includes some of the best bulls and riders from PBR, we’re once again delivering an incredible and affordable event to help celebrate the history and heritage of Adams County,” Cassandra Vossler, Adams County fair manager, said in a press statement.
