The Muskingum County Fair Board announces this year’s big entertainment.

Florida Georgia Line along with special guest Colt Ford will perform Thursday, August 15.

The duo of Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley have used their talents to open for Jake Owen, Brantley Gilbert and Colt Ford. They also took part in the 2012 Country Throwdown Tour.

Their hit song "Cruise" has now put them in the national spotlight and is the first single off of their album "It’s Just What We Do."

For those unfamiliar with the duo, Florida Georgia Line is a cross of hard driving rock with expressive lyrics and is an exciting new sound in country music.

The pair met at Nashville’s Belmont University, where they played local clubs and wrote songs between classes. They draw on a mix of influences from country to hip hop.

Hubbard said, "It’s such a blessing that we get to do this for a living."

Tickets for the event will be available online only at Saturday, April 6 at 9:00 a.m.

The Muskingum County Fair runs Sunday, August 11 to Saturday August 17th.
