Great New York State Fair to Debut Pop/Contemporary Christian Sibling Trio CAIN this Summer

Ahead of Easter weekend, The Great New York State Fair announces that Pop/Contemporary Christian band and sibling trio sensation, CAIN, will join the 2024 entertainment lineup. CAIN will take the Chevy Court Stage on Monday, August 26, 2024 at 6 p.m.

Raised in Hartselle, Alabama as pastor’s kids and now residing in Nashville, the sibling trio comprised of Madison Cain Johnson, Taylor Cain Matz, and Logan Cain have been delighting audiences with their joyous performances since 2012, when they got their big break opening for Dave Barnes and Andrew Ripp. Since then, they have gone on to release four projects and shared the stage with artists such as TobyMac, Zach Williams, and Casting Crowns, while also performing on the famed stages of The Grand Ole Opry, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and Ryman Auditorium.

Following the success of their breakout album, Rise Up, which won a K-LOVE Fan Award for Top Breakout Single “Rise Up (Lazarus),” Honest Offering was released in 2022, followed by Jesus Music in 2023. In 2023, the group debuted their reality TV show “Chasing CAIN,” the first original series produced exclusively for the TBN app and headlined their first tour – CAIN: Live & In Color – during the spring and fall.

“We’re excited to bringing this tremendous sibling trio to fairgoers for the very first time,” said Interim Fair Director Julie LaFave. “CAIN is a great addition to the Chevrolet Music Series at the Great New York State Fair, which has long been known for having something for everyone – from highlighting some of the most talked-about new and contemporary artists like CAIN to welcoming back greats from decades past and everyone in between. We can’t wait to sing alongside these soulful siblings this summer!”

The Fair starts Wednesday, August 21, and runs through Labor Day, Monday, September 2. All concerts are included in the price of admission, which will go on sale later this summer. The Great New York State Fair is the most affordable state fair in the country.

In total, The Fair’s Chevrolet Music Series will feature 39 national recording acts. There will be a daily 1 p.m. and 6 p.m. concert at Chevy Court (located near Gate 1), and a daily 8 p.m. concert at Suburban Park (located on the western end of the Fairgrounds, beyond the Midway).
