The Fair put up this clue: "This artist had several country hits and served with honor"

Right now, the biggest guess is Craig Morgan.

I thought it would be fun to throw it out to you who you'd like to see at our local fair.

I posted the question on Facebook and got some great suggestions.

Our list had a few criteria though. Our list had to reflect reality and stay within the cost of a fair budget the size of ours.

It meant that acts like Elton John, The Eagles, and Tim McGraw wouldn't make our list. I did this list originally back in 2021 and the fair has booked a few of the acts like the Starship so I replaced them.

Sadly, Aaron Carter made the list a few years ago but he passed away, and on my original list was Olivia Rodrigo who we now know her career has gone into the stratosphere.

I think we did pretty well on some of the acts and we also tried to go across all genres from county to pop to rock and even Disney artists. Take a look at our gallery below and let us if you agree with our picks:

25 Acts That We'd Like To See At The Benton/Franklin County Fair

Here are 25 acts we'd like to see at the Benton/Franklin County Fair and Rodeo.

Take a look at our list and see if you agree with our picks!

Washington City Nicknames

There's nothing more personal than a nickname, and even cities and suburbs can end up with special nicknames. Sometimes it's something tongue-in-cheek from its residents or rivals, and sometimes it's an official "motto" meant to promote the city through tourism.

We've compiled dozens of Washington city nicknames to offer you a virtual tour of the weird and wacky names we've given our favorite local areas in the Evergreen state. How many of them have you heard?
