With a career that spans more than fifty years, fans will recognize much-loved hits across multiple genres and decades. Stop by the Dodge County Fair on Thursday, August 20. The band will take the stage at 8 pm for a free concert.
In the 1980’s they released country music hits like “An American Dream” and “Make a Little Magic”. They later released three number one singles, “Long Hard Road”, “Modern Day Romance” and the ever-popular sing-along hit “Fishin’ in the Dark”.
