Florida Georgia Line will play the Grandstand on Tuesday, Aug. 12, at 8 p.m. The red-hot country duo has only been recording for a little less than four years, but Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard have already set the Country music world on fire. The band's debut full-length album Here's to the Good Times topped the country charts and produced the hit singles "Cruise," “Get Your Shine On,”,“Round Here,” and “Stay.” The first single, "Cruise", stayed atop the Country music charts for a record-setting 24 weeks.

Halestorm began recording way back in 1996, but had only released EPs until 2009's self-titled, debut full-length effort put them on the map. The album climbed to No. 4 on the Hard Rock chart and No. 11 on the Mainstream Rock chart while producing the Top 10 Rock singles "I Get Off" and "It's Not You." The band's 2012 follow-up The Strange Case Of... topped the Hard Rock chart and cranked out the hit singles "Love Bites (So Do I)," "I Miss the Misery", and "Freak Like Me." "Love Bites (So Do I)" won Halestorm a Grammy Award for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance in 2013.

Chevelle burst onto the scene in 2002 with the hit single "The Red" off their second album Wonder What's Next. What's next would be eleven Top 10 singles and five Top 20 albums in 12 years. The band has hit No. 1 with the singles "Send the Pain Below," "Vitamin K (Leading Us Along)," "Face to the Floor," and "Hats Off to the Bull." Chevelle's new album, entitled La Gárgola, is due out on April 1. Chevelle and Halestorm will co-headline the Iowa State Fair Grandstand on Friday, August 15.
