Fair Saint Louis Adds Michael Ray to 2018 Entertainment Lineup

ST. LOUIS (June 8, 2018)—Fair Saint Louis has added platinum-selling country star Michael Ray to the 2018 entertainment lineup, replacing CAM due to scheduling conflicts.

“There are a lot of moving parts in big festivals such as Fair Saint Louis,” says James Boldt, general chairman of Fair Saint Louis. “Michael Ray is a great addition to the lineup and we’re looking forward to his performance on the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Stage on July 7.”

The small town Florida native scored two number one hits from his debut album: “Kiss You in the Morning” and “Think A Little Less,” and recently celebrated the release of his dynamic sophomore album, Amos, with performances on Good Morning America and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
