The Great Minnesota Get-Together has just announced its first act for 2022 and it's one of the biggest names in country music.

After taking a year in 2020 due to the pandemic, the Minnesota State Fair was back in 2021, though attendance was about half of a normal year. Well, 2022 is already looking to be incredible, because the State Fair just announced that Zac Brown Band: Out In The Middle Tour with special guest Robert Randolph Band is the first show confirmed for the 2022 Grandstand Concert Series.

Of course, Zac Brown Band also made a stop here in the Land of 10,000 Lakes LAST summer, playing a date at Twin Cities Summer Jam at Canterbury Park.  And last year, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Tim McGraw, and Kevin Costner and American West all played the Minnesota State Fair, so I'm hoping even MORE country acts will be announced in the coming weeks!

Scroll through to find your birth year and then click to listen. Some of these songs have been lost through the years, many of them for good reason!

Men named Hank dominated early before stars like Freddie Hart, Ronnie Milsap, Willie Nelson Clint Black took over to close the 1980s. More recently it's been Tim Mcgraw, Rodney Atkins, Kane Brown and Morgan Wallen. Did the most-played country song from the year you were born become a favorite of yours later?
