Feb. 15, 2019 – Washington Co., WI – Washington County Fair officials are excited to announce the Thursday national acts at the West Bend Mutual Insurance Silver Lining Amphitheater.
Kicking off three nights of National Entertainment on Thursday, July 25, will be Dylan Scott.
The show will feature special guests MITCHELL TENPENNY and TRAVIS DENNING.
It’s a long way from the outskirts of Bastrop, Louisiana, to the No. 1 spot at Country radio, each mile marked by passion, perseverance, and sweat. But rising star Dylan Scott has made the trek.
“It’s like anything else, you have to work at it if you want it,” he said. “You can’t sit back and expect someone else to make it happen for you, you’ve gotta do it yourself.”
With his romantic, PLATINUM certified No. 1 hit “My Girl,” and GOLD-certified Top 5 smash “Hooked,” Scott has certainly done that, paying his dues and transforming real-life experience into chart-topping success. Now with the album DYLAN SCOTT DELUXE EDITION, a new chapter begins with three powerful new tracks joining the original 13.
“When you see people smiling and forgetting about the work week and whatever’s going on in their life, that’s what’s inspiring to me,” he said. “You always think ‘How cool would it be to write a song and go out to perform it, and have people know your music?’ But when it actually happens, it’s even better than you imagined.”
Opening for Scott is Mitchell Tenpenny whose first single and No. 1 hit “Drunk Me” has earned more than 120 million on-demand streams and surpassed 500,000 certifiable units in the U.S. The New York Times named it one of the best songs of 2018, and the singer claims that he knew the song was special as soon as he recorded it.
On the heels of his RIAA-certified Gold single, “Drunk Me,” comes Tenpenny’s major label debut album, Telling All My Secrets. Revealing a wide range of influences and a level of assurance and confidence that comes from already having years of songwriting and touring behind him, the record marks the arrival of an artist recently singled out by Billboard as a pick to “break out” by the end of 2018, and as one of Pandora’s Artists to Watch in 2019.
The other Special Guest, Travis Denning just released his debut single “David Ashley Parker From Powder Springs” and when not touring is working on recording his debut album.
