Rising country singer-songwriter RVSHVD will share his signature vocal tone and prolific songwriting skills with fairgoers this summer as he takes The Great New York State Fair’s Chevy Court stage on Thursday, August 22 at 1:00 p.m.

RVSHVD (pronounced RA-SHAD) hails from the small town of Willacoochee, Georgia. Ten years ago, he heard Keith Urban’s “Sweet Thing,” and dove headfirst into writing and recording country music, finding the genre more personal and rewarding. With the help of his smooth voice and a bare bones home studio, RVSHVD hit the jackpot on his country version of Roddy Ricch’s “Ballin.” The song went viral on Spotify, TikTok, Apple and YouTube, amassing over 25 million streams and lifting his catalog of songs to over 125 million streams. A preview of his recent single, “Shoebox Money,” struck a national conversation racking up 15 million plays, 1 million likes, and over 450,000 shares on Instagram Reels alone, a testament to his unique position in the country music lexicon.

Live, RVSHVD has played Nissan Stadium during CMA Fest, debuted at the Grand Ole Opry, and done dates with Dwight Yoakam. He’s set to play Stagecoach Festival, Golden Sky Festival, and CMA Fest again this year. Along the way, RVSHVD has earned praise from Billboard who named him Country Rookie of the Month, applauding that he “…has carefully curated his own genre-bending sound.” CMT has dubbed him an “Artist To Watch 2024.” His new EP, THE INTRO, is coming out April 19th and features collaborations with rock groups Ice Nine Kills, Asking Alexandria and hip hop icon Paul Wall.

All concerts are included in the price of admission.
