Country legend, Disney star and original runaway to perform at Stanislaus County Fair

The Stanislaus County Fair opens its all-star concert line-up with five-time Grammy winner Wyonna Judd on July 11, and the stars keep on coming throughout the fair's 10-day run.

Judd has sold over 30 million albums worldwide spanning her epic 30-year career. Charting countless singles including 20 #1 hits and over 60 industry awards, the iconic performer was once dubbed by Rolling Stone as “the greatest female country singer since Patsy Cline.”
“Wynonna is a staple in the country music industry for over 30 years,” said Adrenna Alkhas, spokesperson for the Stanislaus County Fair. “We are extremely thrilled to have such a legend perform at our Fair.”

Legendary Billboard chart topping group, Kansas, will be shaking things up at the fair on July 12, followed by Hispanic platinum recording artists Banda Machos with special guest La Unica Sonora Santanera on July 13.
Three time Broadcast Music Inc. song of the year winner Rodney Atkins will take the stage on July 14. The "Celebration" will continue with Kool & the Gang on July 15.
“Kool & the Gang brings back many nostalgic memories,” said Alkhas. “They have provided their fans with a variety of great hits and we can’t wait to ‘celebrate’ with them.”

Disney star Zendaya will "Shake it Up" at the fair on July 16. She recently released her self-titled 2013 debut full-length album where she delivers soulful pop with an urban edge. Her first single included in the album, “Replay” was certified platinum for selling 1 million copies in the U.S. in January, and now has over 44 million views on VEVO.
Most recently, Disney announced that she will star and co-produce in a top line Disney channel spy pilot. In addition, she will also star in the Disney Channel Original Movie, “Zapped” which premieres this summer. Zendaya also lends her voice to the character “Fern” in Disney Channel’s animated special “Pixie Hollow Games,” which is part of the successful Disney Fairies franchise. She also performs the special’s theme song, “Dig Down Deeper.”

Loverboy will bring their trademark red leather pants, bandanas, big rock sound and high-energy live show to the fairgrounds on July 17. Legendary music icons Three Dog Night are set to perform on July 18.
The final Saturday night of the fair will feature Joan Jett and the hard-rocking Blackhearts.
“This is a show that rock ‘n’ roll fans will not want to miss,” said Alkhas.
As the leader of the hard-rocking Blackhearts, Jett has had eight platinum and gold albums and nine Top 40 singles, including the classics “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll,” “I Hate Myself For Loving You” and “Crimson and Clover.” Recently Jett released her latest album “Unvarnished” in October 2013. Jett was one of only two women named to Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 100 greatest guitar players of all time. Since co-founding the all-girl punk group, the Runaways, at age 15, Jett’s determination and drive have kept her in the public eye.
