ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va. -- UPDATE: Daughtry and the Goo-Goo Dolls are co-headliners, part of the lineup for the 2014 Rockingham County Fair.
Fair organizers announced the lineup at a kickoff party on Tuesday evening.
Lee Brice is one of three stars to perform on Country Music Night. Daughtry and the Goo-Goo-Dolls will co-headline the next night. Old Crow Medicine Show, made up of Harrisonburg natives, will be back again for the second straight year.
One local business owner says being able to draw people to big acts at the fair can have a ripple effect throughout the year.
"Local people know about the fair," said Johnny Garber, owner of Timberville Drug Store, "but when you get talent like that, it'll draw people from Richmond, other areas of the state, then they get to see this part of the state and I think they'll come back again too."
