MULTI-PLATINUM, award-winning recording artist Gabby Barrett brings her powerhouse vocals to Rifle for the 86th annual Garfield County Fair and Rodeo Friday, July 26. Country music royal Ned LeDoux gets the good times rolling at the Garfield County Fairgrounds.

One of Country music’s brightest stars, Barrett is currently climbing the charts with her poignant new single “Dance Like No One’s Watching.” Featured on her sought-after sophomore album Chapter & Verse, applauded as her most autobiographical work to date, the LP also includes fan-favorites “Glory Days” and “Growin’ Up Raisin You.” This stunning evolution follows her PLATINUM debut Goldmine and its Deluxe edition – a 2020 release with smashes: meteoric breakout 7X PLATINUM #1 “I Hope,” 4-week Hot AC #1 crossover “I Hope (feat. Charlie Puth),” 3X PLATINUM three-week #1 “The Good Ones,” and PLATINUM “Pick Me Up.”

Surpassing 3 BILLION global career streams, she’s also stacked major accolades like Billboard Women in Music 2022’s Rising Star Award, 2021 CMT Artists of the Year, and the iHeartRadio Titanium Award, plus nods from ACM, AMA, Billboard, CMA, CMT, and iHeartRadio.

Barrett has supported the hottest country tours, including Jason Aldean, Kane Brown, and Brooks & Dunn, while playing mega music festivals like Stagecoach. Named by Variety as “one of the most recognizable faces in country,” she will thrill concertgoers with her dynamic performance, encouraging fans to enjoy these glory days.

Ned LeDoux gets the party started

Country music star Ned LeDoux has carved out a successful career with his ability to “take the listener to a place they’d rather be.” The Wyoming native is known for his high-energy live shows that mix western roots with rock and roll influences.

His latest album, Buckskin, was produced by legendary singer, songwriter, and guitarist Mac McAnally, and has quickly become a fan favorite. Born on a ranch outside Kaycee, Wyo., LeDoux’s transportive songs are relatable and nostalgic, soaring to heights while keeping your boots firmly planted on the ground.

“I hope I inspire people to never forget where you came from,” LeDoux said. “That’s one thing I’m very proud of. I’m carrying on a tradition, but I’m writing my own story. I’m very proud of my family and friends and there’s one piece of advice my mom gave me when we were kids: ‘Never forget where you came from and show respect to people no matter where you are.’”

He routinely headlines his own shows, and has earned coveted opening slots for Toby Keith, Aaron Watson, and Garth Brooks. This is one show you won’t want to miss!
