Benton County unveils entertainment lineup

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Sara Evans and the Bellamy Brothers will be headlining the 2012 Benton County Fair and Rodeo, which is scheduled from Aug. 1 through 4 at the county fairgrounds.

 The Bellamy Brothers will perform at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 1, and Sara Evans will perform at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 2.

 Multi-platinum RCA recording artist Sara Evans has been honored with numerous accolades including 2006 ACM Female Vocalist of the Year and the CMA’s Video of the Year for “Born to Fly.” She has been named one of People Magazine’s “50 Most Beautiful People” and won the hearts of television viewers as the first-ever country star to compete in ABC’s Dancing with the Stars. She enjoys a prolific recording career with more than 5 million records sold and five chart-topping No. 1 country singles including the self-penned “Born to Fly” along with “No Place That Far,” “Suds in the Bucket,” “A Real Fine Place to Start” and “Perfect.”

 For more than 30 years the Bellamy Brothers have been an unassuming picture of consistency in country music. Even more remarkable is that they have remained relevant in a genre that has become increasingly enamored with style over substance. Yet Howard and David Bellamy have weathered the trends admirably, enjoying enormous success throughout their career and numerous No. 1 hits on both the country and pop charts such as “Let Your Love Flow,” “If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” “Sugar Daddy,” “Redneck Girl” and many more.

 An annual staple at the Benton County Fair and Rodeo and one of the acts community members come back for enthusiastically year after year, Johnny Limbo and the Lugnuts started out as a party gag in 1978 and have become one of the most popular bands to perform the classic hits from the 1950s and ‘60s. The Lugnuts’ fame has spread beyond the Pacific Northwest, dazzling audiences from Washington state to Washington, D.C. The band emphasizes showmanship, creating a never-ending energy on stage. Johnny Limbo and the Lugnuts will be performing two shows – one at 7 and the second at 9 p.m. – on Saturday, Aug. 4.

 “Every year the Benton County Fair and Rodeo strives to deliver the best possible talent for our community to enjoy,” Fairgrounds Manager Lonny Wunder said. “We are excited about this year’s lineup, as we think it is a good addition to our tradition of family entertainment.”

 There also will be discount days. For more information about the Benton County Fair, or to order tickets, those interested can go online to
