LINCOLN, Ill. — It will be 700 fenceposts to the Logan County Fair on Saturday, Aug. 3, as the popular country group Diamond Rio takes the stage at the fairgrounds in Lincoln in central Illinois.

The group, which had a list of hits in the 1990s, including their first hit single, “Meet In the Middle,” will perform, along with country singer and songwriter Adam Doleac, at 7:30 p.m.

The 2024 Logan County Fair opens on July 28 and runs through Aug. 4.

Diamond Rio became the first country group to have its debut single go to the top of the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts.

The group also racked up awards along the way, including multiple Grammys, Academy of Country Music awards and Country Music Association awards.

The band, which underwent several personnel changes throughout the years, put out a long list of popular tunes.

Four of those, “How Your Love Makes Me Feel,” “One More Day,” “Beautiful Mess” and “I Believe” made it to the top of the charts.
