LIMA — Singer-songwriter MacKenzie Porter, whose singles “About You,” “These Days” and “Seeing Other People” have made her a rising star in the Country music world, will open for Brad Paisley at the Allen County Fair on Aug. 21.
Originally from Canada, Porter moved to Nashville in 2014. Her singles have since topped the Canadian Country radio charts and earned her a spot touring with artists like Kenny Chesney, Rascal Flatts, Chris Lane, Blake Shelton and Dallas Smith.
Her latest album, Drinkin’ Songs: The Collection, was released last year.
Paisley was scheduled to headline the Allen County Fair last August before the coronavirus pandemic forced the fair board to postpone the 2020 concert. But Paisley is set to perform at the grandstands this time around, as the Allen County Fair Board plans to move forward with a full fair in August now that the pandemic is receding.
Tickets are already on sale, and all tickets purchased for the 2020 Paisley show will be accepted.
The show begins at 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 21.
