PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
At the onset of 2020, Chase Rice was headed south through snowy mountain highways, winding his way home to his Tennessee farm. He was readying for the release of The Album Part I, his surprise seven-song set, followed by the four-song The Album Part II. It was an exciting time. But a beginning? Coming from a star who’s already earned Platinum songs and a No. 1 single – plus a record-breaking, Diamond-certified No. 1 as a songwriter – the claim is puzzling.

Until you hear the new music.

Singing sleek rhymes over heartland six strings and keys mixed with EDM-laced drama, this is the same gravely-voiced Chase Rice fans first fell in love with years ago – but better. Freer. Unbeholden and uninhibited, somehow capable of evoking Chris LeDoux and The Chronic, campfire singalongs and stadium anthems, all at once. “If you just keep going and keep going, you eventually figure out what you want to say with your songs and how you want to say it,” Rice says. “It’s crazy to say, but yeah. I think this is the beginning of my entire career.” 

The story behind the collaboration is defined by poetic kismet and real-world bonds. Rice first climbed charts as a co-writer of Florida Georgia Line’s Diamond-certified monster hit “Cruise,” the historic 24-week No. 1 that perched atop the Billboard Hot Country Chart longer than any other song in the chart’s then-69-year history. But the three musicians’ story together begins much earlier. Rice grew up with Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley in Daytona Beach, Florida. Time went by and Rice’s family moved away to North Carolina, but he found Kelley again a few years later and the two remained close as they each discovered a love for music.

His latest releases are the most triumphant reflections of Rice’s distinct blend of worldly and American rural experience yet: an exploration of sounds and moods with authentic country roots and bold pop wings. The sexiness and fun fans have come to expect from Rice is still there. He has a way of combining playfulness or even sadness with commitment: A strong vein of being someone else’s rock in a variety of ways continues to run through Rice’s writing. “That’s what life’s about, really,” he says. “I’ve had breakups over the last few years, but I don’t post about my personal life on social media. You’ll just hear about it in my songs. That’s the only place where I’ll let it out.”

With Part II, produced entirely by himself and DeStefano, Rice continued to build on the dynamic catalog by leaning into a vulnerable space of personal inspiration. “You” opens the four-song set in emphatic fashion, building in intensity from spoken word elements to a singalong chorus as a haunting female backing vocal gives the track an added layer of interest. “It’s literally about the girl I was dating at the time and trying to find the happiness that she was giving me in all this other stuff, but at the end of the day you are the only one that can give that to me… she was the only one that could make me feel the way that I felt.”

Ultimately, Rice hopes every listener enjoys each song for exactly what it is. Proud of his distinct path but focused most on what’s next, he is enjoying the unique gift of growing artistically while still connecting with the fans who have been there from the beginning. “Now I know what I want to say. Now I know how I want to say it. This music is by far the best music I’ve ever made,” Rice says. “Now’s our time. It’s about to get real fun.

Keith released his first four studio albums-1993's Toby Keith, 1994's Boomtown, 1996's Blue Moon and 1997's Dream Walkin', plus a Greatest Hits package for various divisions of Mercury Records before leaving Mercury in 1998. These albums all earned Gold or higher certification, and produced several Top Ten singles, including his debut "Should've Been a Cowboy", which topped the country charts and was the most-played country song of the 1990s. The song has received three million spins since its release, according to Broadcast Music Incorporated.

Indiana's Oldest County Fair

The LaPorte County Agricultural Association sponsored the first LaPorte County Fair in 1845. As we were essentially an agricultural society in the early days, special emphasis was in promoting quality farm products. Later, traditional domestic projects were added such as food preparation, canning, sewing, craft, fine arts and painting.

Events such as horse racing, stage shows and carnival attractions were later added. The County Fair served as an educational and social event for the citizens of LaPorte County that they looked forward to each year.

In the early 1900's, 4-H youth became involved and expanded rapidly when in 1918 a Boy's and Girl's Club building was erected. The 4-H program is now the main educational program, even though the adult agricultural and domestic programs continue to be an important part of the fair. It is truly a family event with many hundreds of volunteers.

Each year the fair is complimented with large exhibiting commercial, industrial, and consumer products. A recent addition to the grounds has been Pioneer Land. It has been very popular with the public and school children who visit it during the school year.

The LaPorte County Agricultural Association is truly a popular volunteer educational and service organization serving the rural and urban citizens of LaPorte County.
