“American Idol” winner Scotty McCreery will play two shows at this year’s N.C. State Fair, and one of those October shows has already sold out.
That concert was first announced in December, and all 5,100 seats were immediately snatched up. The Garner native’s second show at Dorton Arena was announced Monday, along with the full concert line-up.
The 2012 concert schedule offers a mix of country and Christian music acts, with one R&B artist, Brian McKnight, the pop group Hot Chelle Rae, and a night devoted to a cappella groups from Duke, N.C. State and UNC-Chapel Hill.
McCreery won’t be the only North Carolina native on the roster. Jason Michael Carroll, a country singer who grew up in Youngsville, will also perform.
Michael W. Smith is a Christian music artist with more than 20 albums on his resume, and McKnight has 16 Grammy nominations to his credit.
Tickets range in price from $5 to $25 and go on sale 10 a.m. Aug. 1 at ncstatefair.org.
