(Riverton, Wyo.) – The 100th Fremont County Fair is just a few days away and we can already hear The Oak Ridge Boys and Kip Moore warming up. This Saturday, July 27th, Wind River Hotel and Casino will bring us quite a show!
Starting at 5:00 p.m. The Oak Ridge Boys will hit the stage for their 40th Anniversary Tour. Their four-part harmonies and upbeat songs have earned them Grammy, Dove, CMA, and ACM awards.
“When I go on stage, I get the same feeling I had the first time I sang with The Oak Ridge Boys,” says lead singer Duane Allen. “This is the only job I’ve ever wanted to have.”

Kip Moore is set to take the stage at 9:00 p.m. just in time for the sun to go down.
Signed to Universal Music Group, Kip Moore is an up-and-coming country sensation. Hailing from Tifton, GA, Moore’s style was influenced by Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Kris Kristofferson. He moved to Nashville after a brief stint in Hawaii, when a good friend encouraged him to take up songwriting full time.
“I didn’t know a whole lot about the world of songwriting,” he says. “I just did it for my own enjoyment. We talked about Nashville and I ended up saying, ‘I’m going to give it a shot.’ I flew back home and told my folks. They thought I was crazy. Now they’ll say different, that they knew all along.”
Moore’s raw and rustic voice combines with compelling lyrics of honesty to create a unique sound that’s simultaneously hypnotic and edgy. He paired up with songwriter Brett James, who produced his debut album, Drive Me Crazy. His first single, “Mary Was The Marrying Kind” gained him a lot of deserved attention and “Somethin Bout A Truck”, Moore’s second single, is currently in the top 30 on the charts and climbing. His new song “Hey Pretty Girl” is currently climbing the charts.
