August 8, 2017 Simcoe, Ontario - the Norfolk County Fair & Horse Show, is thrilled to announce the second concert performance at the Grandstand for this year’s fair.
On Friday, October 6thth at 8:00 pm, CCMA Nominated Male Artist of the Year, Canadian Country superstar Tim Hicks will take the stage.
Hot off headlining his “Shake These Walls Tour,” Hicks has continued to do what he does best: connect with audiences from coast to coast and beyond.
With a resume of a veteran that includes seven Top 10 singles on Canadian country radio, #1 country album for 5:01, multiple CCMA and SOCAN wins and JUNO nods he has earned coveted spots on prestigious festival stages nationwide. His 2017 Shake These Walls tour charted a path that is completely new and shoots straight for the country music stratosphere.
“As each year on this crazy ride goes by, I just feel more comfortable as Tim Hicks, the artist,” Hicks says. “The challenge of trying to write a good song is still one of the most exciting parts of my job.”
2017 continues to be a rocket ride for Tim Hicks with CCMA Nominations for both Male Artist of the Year and Interactive Artist of the Year! “Slide Over” was Sirius Radio Country’s Most Wanted Song. Tim has gone platinum with “Get By” and double platinum certification for his hit “Stronger Beer.”
This is Tim Hicks’ premier performance at the Fair thanks to our community partners including Simcoe Reformer, Scotlynn, BX93 and the Province of Ontario.
