CHEYENNE COUNTY, NE — Chase Bryant is on his way to Cheyenne County this summer.
The country music artist will perform at the Cheyenne County Fair on July 30.
"We're pretty excited to finally have a contract locked in," Cheyenne County Fair Board vice president Whitney Whartman said. "It's been a little bit of a challenge, especially over the past year with COVID. We were really excited we had some good options such as Chase Bryant."
Bryant has two songs that have reached the top 10 on the Billboard Country Music Chart. “Take it on Back” and “Little Bit of You” both climbed the chart off Bryant’s self-titled EP released in 2014. He’s also toured with artists like Brantley Gilbert and Tim McGraw.
Whartman said since the fair won't have all the usual activities this year, such as a carnival, due to booking issues regarding COVID-19, the fair board put extra effort into getting an act like Bryant to perform at the fair.
"We thought we would invest the money, bring it back into Chase Bryant," she said. Like I said, he was happy to come and we're happy to have him."
The Texas native took time away from music to address his mental health after attempting to take his own life in 2018. Now he’s back. Bryant’s first full length album, Upbringing comes out just two weeks before he takes the stage at the Cheyenne County Fairgrounds.
"It was a big deal that we were able to get a big name," Whartman said.
