SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The New York State Fair has announced a new act to perform at Chevy Court this summer!

Country crooner and multi-platform recording artist, Matt Stell, will be making a stop at the fairgrounds, performing at Chevy Court Stage on Saturday, August 27, at 6:00 p.m.

Central New York country music fans will be familiar with his twice-platinum song “Prayed for You” and the platinum “Everywhere But On” which earned him back-to-back #1 hits in 2019.

“Fair fans will find a country crooner with a big heart in Matt Stell,” said Interim Fair Director Sean Hennessey. “While he’s known for songs exploring themes including heartbreak, big dreams, and fun nights, he’s also working to improve the lives of others through his charitable foundation, which supports organizations including St Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Doctors Without Borders, and the Humane Society.”

Matt Stell’s performance – like all concerts in the Chevrolet Music Series – is free with admission to the Fair.
