Dan + Shay, country and Christian stars announced for 100th Delaware State Fair

Dan + Shay are having a big week.

Before Sunday night’s awards show, the country stars won a Grammy for Best Country Duo/Group Performance for their hit “Tequila.”

The No. 1 country hit crossed over to the pop charts last year, and when the duo performed it at the Grammys Sunday night it became the night’s most Shazamed song of the night, according to Variety.

Fans now have the chance to see Dan + Shay while celebrating 100 years of the Delaware State Fair.

The fair announced Wednesday the country duo — and three other headliners — will play the M & T Bank Grandstand this summer.

The recently reunited Sugarland plays the Delaware State Fair on July 18. The Grammy-winning duo, which recently released the single “Babe” with Taylor Swift, is touring behind its album “Bigger.”

Tickets for Sugarland are $44 to $90, and VIP tickets are $150.

Dan + Shay are set to play the fair for the first time on July 22. The duo released its first hit, “19 You + Me,” in 2013 and gained acclaim quickly, with multiple awards nominations but no wins. This year’s “Tequila” was a breakthrough, winning the Grammy and the CMT Music Awards Duo Video of the Year.

Dan + Shay tickets are $34 to $84, and $150 for VIP.

Popular Christian artists have become a regular presence at the fair, with recent performances by Casting Crowns and Lauren Daigle (who this summer will play the Firefly Music Festival in Dover). This year, the fair is bringing Bethel Music to the stage on July 23.

Tickets for Bethel Music are $20 to $60, and VIP tickets are $150.

Tickets for all four will go on sale Saturday, Feb. 23, at 10 a.m. at www.delawarestatefair.com or at 800-514-3849.
