The Great Jones County Fair in Monticello, Iowa has a reputation for booking some of the biggest country acts each year.  And you can expect more of the same in 2023.

Join 103.3 WJOD in welcoming Jon Pardi and special guest Russell Dickerson to the Great Jones County Fair in Monticello Saturday, July 22, 2023

This is a can't-miss show for fans of traditional country music, Jon Pardi is one of the hottest artists in the format and he'll appear at the Great Jones Fair for the first time in his career next July.

Pardi first hit the top 10 nearly a decade ago with the 2013 hit "Up All Night" but 2016 was when his career began to take off. "Head Over Boots" went to number one that year, followed to the top of the charts by "Dirt on My Boots." The two songs came from Pardi's album "California Sunrise," (Jon is a California native) which included three other big hit songs ("Heartache on the Dance Floor, "She Ain't In It," and "Night Shift".

"Heartache Medication" and his duet with Thomas Rhett, "Beer Can't Fix", have also been number one songs for Pardi. Last month, just days before the September 2 release of his new album "Mr. Saturday Night", Pardi's latest single "Last Night Lonely" became his 5th number one song.


Pardi will be joined in Monticello next summer by Tennessee native Russell Dickerson.  In 2018, Dickerson's song "Yours" went number one. His hits "Blue Tacoma", "Every Little Thing", and "Love You Like I Used To" also were all chart-toppers.  Just like Pardi, this will be Russell's first appearance at the Great Jones County Fair.

Tickets for this incredible show go on sale Friday, October 14th at 10 am.  Online only at
