Toby Keith – Toby Keith, a #1 country singer, songwriter and entertainer many times over is bringing out a party to the Great Jones County Fair. His latest album, Clancy’s Tavern, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart.

“Hairspray” – Hairspray delighted audiences by sweeping them away to 1960?s Baltimore, where the 50?s are out — and change is in the air. Loveable plus-size heroine, Tracy Turnblad, has a passion for dancing, and wins a spot on the local TV dance program, “The Corny Collins Show.” Overnight she finds herself transformed from outsider to teen celebrity. Can a larger-than-life adolescent manage to vanquish the program’s reigning princess, integrate the television show, and find true love (singing and dancing all the while, of course!) without mussing her hair?
