Summer is approaching, and one of the best parts of the summer is the fair is right around the corner. Last week, the Eastern Idaho State Fair in Blackfoot announced its lineup for the fair in September. They have a good balance of country music, comedy, and more music. With their lineup being mentioned last week, it is time to focus on the Western Idaho Fair in Boise. The lineup for the fair this year has been announced, and there are some performers you will not want to miss.

The Western Idaho Fair in Boise will be taking place from August 19 through August 28, which may seem far away, but will be here before you know it. Recently, they released the lineup that will be taking the stage this year, and it is a good one. Starting off the performances on Monday, August 22 will be one of the biggest rising country stars Chris Jansen. If Chris Jansen isn't enough for you, on Friday, August 26 Billy Currington will take the stage. Two big country stars to start and end the performances that week is a great way to spend a few summer nights.
