It's finally happening. The country star who grew up in Eastern Iowa will return to play the grandstands at the Great Jones County Fair! Welcome home, Hailey Whitters!

You don't read about many country stars who hail from the Hawkeye State. But Hailey Whitters is as 'Iowa' as it gets. The Shueyville native had dreams of being a singer-songwriter in Nashville and after years of hard work, her dreams are coming true! Hailey found success as a songwriter penning tunes for the likes of Alan Jackson, Martina McBride, and Little Big Town. But when Hailey released her album The Dream in 2020, the song 'Ten Year Town' caught hold and resonated with anyone who had ever chased a dream, and didn't give up!

Hailey would go on to release a deluxe version of the album that featured collaborations with Jordan Davis, Little Big Town, and Trisha Yearwood. But it was her follow-up album that finally got Hailey noticed at country radio and beyond. Raised was released in 2022 and was one of the best-reviewed country albums of the year! It also gave Hailey her first-ever platinum single and radio hit, 'Everything She Ain't.

Her current single is 'I'm in Love' off of the EP of the same title from 2023. Along with her Can't Tie'R Down tour, Hailey is also opening for huge acts like Dan + Shay, Jason Aldean, and Luke Combs!

But on Sunday, July 21, Hailey Whitters will be at the Great Jones County Fair in Monticello, Iowa! Tickets to see Hailey will go on sale Monday, February 12th at 10 a.m. There will also be a special KHAK pre-sale on Sunday, February 11 at 10 a.m. To get the pre-sale information on Saturday morning at 8, download our free app and turn on concert/event alerts.
