It's almost summertime, and you know what that means - it's summer concert season!

There are a ton of concerts happening in Missoula that we can't wait to see this year... but let's expand our reach just a little bit. What's going on in, say, Kalispell?

Well, if you're planning to attend the Northwest Montana Fair in Kalispell, you're also going to have the chance to check out a show from one of the biggest names in modern country music.

Lee Brice is Headlining the Northwest Montana Fair

Lee Brice - the artist behind hits like "Drinking Class," "Parking Lot Party," and "Hard to Love," - is no stranger to the area. I caught him at the Big Sky Brewing Amphitheater back in 2019, and in 2020 he performed a small, private, socially-distanced set for a select group of people at The Wilma. Later this year, you'll be able to see him headlining Headwaters Country Jam alongside Chris Janson and Hardy.

But if you've got to miss Headwaters this year, here's a solid backup plan: Lee Brice is set to headline the Northwest Montana Fair in Kalispell for a show on Wednesday, August 17th.

You can buy tickets to check out Lee Brice at the Northwest Montana Fair at the fair's website, alongside other events like the PRCA Rodeo and Big Air Bash. Think you'll be heading out to Kalispell to go see Lee Brice this summer, or maybe check out some of the other events and attractions at the Northwest Montana Fair?
