Hey guys, bundles are here! Here's how they work!

Each bundle you purchase will come with three separate concert tickets and three separate gate admissions. When you print off your tickets at home, you will have six sheets of paper (tickets)!

The cool part is you can break your bundle apart. Say your cousin Joe wants to go to Bad Wolves, and you only want to see Halestorm and Theory Of A Deadman. That's perfect...give your extra concert ticket and gate admission to Joe! We don't care how you split them up with friends and family, just make sure people come so we can keep having good shows at Nebraska State Fair!

A social media following of more than 7 million, and videos exceeding a quarter of a BILLION views, Smith has amassed a rabid audience. His current album When the Good Guys Win includes hot singles like "You're In It" and "Happens Like That" have made him a crossover artist to Hot Country.

Cody Jinks

Sunday, Aug. 25
Heartland Event Center
8pm
Bundle $79 reserved seats
Pit Bundle $129 SRO

Rolling Stone said it best about Cody Jinks: "Rule Changing Country Music." With his smooth baritone and lonesome, dark-hued country songs, the Saving Country Music Album of the Year award winner is proving that country music, empowered by credibility, has made its way to the masses. His latest critically-acclaimed album I'm Not The Devil smashed his personal chart records, breaking Top 5 On Billboard. Pandora called I'm Not The Devil "a gift from above for country fans of all stripes." In our opinion, Jinks is the next great Stapleton.

Monday, Aug. 26
Heartland Event Center
8pm
Bundle $79 reserved seats
Pit Bundle $129 SRO

Over two whirlwind years, the gritty Texas band, Whiskey Myers, hit #1 on the iTunes Country Chart with their breakout third album Early Morning Shakes. They don't come any more southern than Whiskey Myers, fueled by larger-than-life performances. Their stellar new album, Mud, is a raw sound of visceral emotion: pride, faith, desire, defiance. Whiskey Myers' music fits neatly into no genre. While influenced heavily by country music, the band credits everything from Alan Jackson to Nirvana as inspiration.

Reckless Kelly with the Braun brothers is a group with family legacies in music performance. Music Row magazine proclaimed, "In my perfect world, this is what country radio would sound like." The band claims that the Heartland gave them authenticity. Their Grammy winning song Long Night Moon in 2013 is part of a long string of critically acclaimed work. Reckless Kelly opens for Whiskey Myers in what is sure to be a tremendous night of Red Dirt.

Following the success of 2014's Savages album, singer Todd Connolly needed a shift. He sat down to a keyboard and, "...started writing songs that felt musically different." The result was smash hit "RX" on the album Wake Up Call. It fits right in with Theory's long track record of success, such as #1 hits like "Bad Girlfriend," "Lowlife," "So Happy," and "Angel."

Bad Wolves aren't just a band, they're a sonic wrecking ball. They have exploded onto the rock scene, particularly with their cover of the Cranberries' "Zombie" which has racked up more than 180 million digital views. Their album Disobey is a collection of songs that sees this group of L.A. music veterans stretching and exploring sonic space they've never veered into in the past.
