PI Motorsports Hot Farm and Pro Farm Classes will be joining us this evening. Tractors just are not for the farm anymore. The original intent of this pull for antique and farm tractors was to have an event where people who had a tractor in their back yard or on their farm could come to the Fair, join the pull and have some fun. The Antique Farm and Tractor Pull is exactly that! Come out and cheer on your favorite color tractor that evening! See who takes home the bragging rights for the year! www.pipullers.com

9:00 pm Swing Crew, Live Band-John Litscher Pavilion, No Cover Charge
Fun is the bottom line with this interactive, acoustic band. The shows feature a wide variety of music, audience participation, jokes, stunts, cornball humor and toasts. The Swing Crew performs a wide variety of music. They play classic rock, country, pop, swing, “island beat” and about any other genre you could possibly come up with. They play whatever gets the crowd going. So if you want to hear something in particular just ask them, they most likely know it. The best thing about going to see The Swing Crew perform is that it’s not like seeing your average “bar band”, the quality of the music and the crazyness of their antics will keep you entertained throughout the show. The bottom line is FUN. www.swingcrew.com

7:00 pm Keith Anderson Stage Sponsored by Ho-Chunk Gaming Wisconsin Dells -John Litscher Pavilion Area
$10 Cover Charge to John Litscher Pavilion (beer stand) tonight, Forgotten Highway will be the opening act
This concert is open to any and everyone. 21 and Under will have an entrance into the concert area.
Singer/Songwriter Keith Anderson’s latest song “I’ll Bring The Music” sums up Anderson to a T.
That is one thing that you can always say about this academic athlete from Miami, OK, who has always excelled at anything he has put his mind to, is he WILL bring the Music.
Although he has co-written hits for other artists, most notably “Lost In This Moment”, the No. 1 smash for Big & Rich which garnered him a CMA and ACM Song of the Year
nomination, Anderson does not write with other artists in mind. “I think I’ll always write about what I know and feel–and typically with myself in mind. However, I write a lot and
I keep the songs that are really speaking to me when I’m recording, and pitch everything else to other artists”, says Anderson. Anderson also co-wrote the Grammy-nominated, “Beer Run (B Double E Double Are You In?)” for Garth Brooks and George Jones, “The Bed” for Gretchen Wilson and “Barn Burner” for Jason Michael Carroll.
His debut CD, “Three Chord Country and American Rock & Roll”, was certified Gold and garnered two Top 10 hits (accompanied by two No. 1 music videos), “Pickin’
Wildflowers,” and “Every Time I Hear Your Name,” along with two Top 30 hits “XXL” and “Podunk”. This success prompted music trades Billboard and Radio & Records to name him country music’s No. 1 New Male Artist of 2005 and the top new solo country artist of the year. It wasn’t just his music that was getting attention. Anderson was named one of People Magazine’s “50 Hottest Bachelors”, and Men’s Fitness Magazine’s, “Ultimate Country Star”.
Anderson’s sophomore CD garnered the biggest hit of his career, “I Still Miss You”, which peaked at #2 and another Top 25 hit, “Sunday Morning In America”.
Taking the lead with other gold and platinum artists, Anderson decided to take hold of the reigns this time by launching his music his own way and letting the fans help drive his music and passion. “ “I’ll Bring the Music” has had a huge resonance with the fans.” says Anderson. “As I tour all over the country, that is the song that gets them on their feet and is the song they are still singing as they head out the door. It reminds me of how “Pickin’ Wildflowers moved them”. And now Sirius XM Radio is “Dancin to the beat” as it has been added to The Highway channel 59’s program, “On The Horizon”.
One thing is for sure…..Keith Anderson will “Bring The Music” every time!
10:30 pm Forgotten Highway, Live–John Litscher Pavilion
The perfect harmony between today’s modern country hits and yesterday’s country classics, Forgotten Highway prides itself on being able to successfully walk the line between the two worlds. Combining the guitar sounds of the 1950s and integrating them with modern country and acoustic instruments has
given Forgotten Highway one of the most unique country voices on the scene today. Teaming up with some of the most talented musicians in the midwest has allowed front men Hunter and Andrew the opportunity to create and refine a sound that is as unique as anything that comes out of Nashville today. After touring for only 2 years, performing at Country on the River and playing on main stages of church festivals and Fourth of July parties seemed to be the pinnacle of their success. But Forgotten Highway has made it clear that they are not at all done, as they opened for many of Country Music’s finest musicians including Joe Nichols, Big & Rich, Phil Vassar, .38 Special, Jake Owen, Gary Allan, Chris Cagle, Lonestar, Little Texas, and Sawyer Brown over the course of the past few years. Forgotten Highway is making their mark on country music one song at a time.

Noon Mississippi Valley Dutchman Polka Band-John Litscher Pavilion, No Cover Charge
In a small west central Wisconsin village about 30 miles east of the Mississippi River lived a young farm boy whose roots were embedded deeply into old time folk music. Brian Brueggen, born in 1965, has carried on a family tradition that goes back to the 1800’s. Brian started his own band in 1985. It started as a six-piece band. As the years passed by, many larger bands decreased to 3-4 piece bands. However, twenty years later, Brian is one of the few band leaders who still maintains a six-piece band. In Brian’s words, the credit would go to loyal side musicians who still love to be part of a big band. The Mississippi Valley Dutchmen have secured one of the finest names in old time music, playing the traditional “Dutchmen Style” music. www.mississippivalleydutchmen.com
