SPRINGFIELD, Il (WGEM) – Entertainment legend Reba McEntire will perform at the 2019 Illinois State Fair.

State fair officials report that Reba will close out the 2019 Illinois State Fair with the final Illinois Lottery Grandstand Stage concert on Sunday, August 18.

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Hollywood Bowl member has won 16 ACM Awards, 15 American Music Awards, nine People’s Choice Awards, six CMA Awards, three GRAMMY® Awards, and a GMA Dove Award.
