Today is day three of the 2015 Minnesota State Fair, and no night at the grandstand will be bigger than tonight -- with Carrie Underwood set to take the stage. Last night Keith Urban and Kelsey Ballerini entertained a sell-out crowd, and tomorrow night is Alan Jackson's turn. Carrie's show as been sold out for months.
Summerfest attendees in Wisconsin got a special treat this year, when young duo Dan + Shay joined country vet Keith Urban for a unique performance of his heart string-tugging hit “Tonight I Wanna Cry.”
We already know that the genre's biggest stars hang out together, like Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean, who go fishing regularly. But in addition to their peers, country artists also spend time with celebrities from other walks, like acting.

The Band Perry may be in better physical shape than any country artist not named McGraw. Their aerobic set at Country Jam in Grand Junction, Colo. was also as well-manicured a show as you'll see. No detail gets ignored.
Toby Keith playing "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue" to 15,000 country music fans will never get old. The singer closed the 2015 Taste of Country Music Festival with his two most patriotic songs, but those were far from the only two highlights from Sunday night (June 14).
Keith Urban's haircut went mostly under the radar at the 2015 CMT Music Awards, but at the Taste of Country Music Festival, the star was face-forward with a look that proves he's both with the times and in the moment.
On “John Cougar, John Deere, John 3:16” Keith Urban returns to more traditional country themes while continuing to push his sound in new directions. Lyrically, the funky new window to his next studio album is immediately relatable. It won’t need the time songs like “Cop Car” and “Raise ‘Em Up” needed to cook.
