Country music hitmaker Joe Nichols is coming back to Eastern Iowa this summer!

Joe Nichols has been putting out great country music since the late 1990s. Has he really been around that long? But his career really took off in 2002 with songs like The Impossible, and his first career number-one single, Brokenheartsville.

Joe's career was off and running! He would follow up that success with more chart-topping tunes including What's a Guy Gotta Do and the number one hit and all-time great party song, Tequilla Makes Her Clothes Fall Off!

Nichols would go on to have several other number-one songs at country radio including Gimme That Girl, Sunny and 75, and Yeah. Plus, the guy is a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals fan!

Joe Nichols will bring all those party songs and more to Eastern Iowa this summer as he plays at The Linn County Fair in Central City! Joe will play on Friday night, June 28th. Opening up the show that night will be a trio of sisters, The Castellows!

Tickets to see Joe Nichols with The Castellows will go on sale this Friday, February 2nd at 10 a.m. at the Linn County Fair website. 

There may be snow on the ground now, but we can't wait for June! We'll see you at the Linn County Fair singing Joe Nichols songs!

Sign up to win a 4-pack of tickets to the show below. The contest ends on Sunday, February 11 at 11:59 p.m.
