The Erie County Fair has added rising pop star Meghan Trainor to the GUSTO Grandstand concert lineup. The concert will take place on Thursday, August 13 at 7:30pm.

Meghan Trainor may seem like a newcomer to the music scene, but at age 21 she has already been in the business for six years. At just fifteen, Trainor put out her first of three self-released albums. Though the albums didn’t propel her singing career they launched her songwriting career. Meghan Trainor has written songs for Rascal Flatts, Hunter Hayes, and Hot Chelle Rae.

After moving to Nashville Trainor began to collaborate with Grammy-nominated producer/songwriter Kevin Kadish. The duo began working on her first studio album, which would combine hip-hop rhythm, country melodies, and a calypso band sound.

Meghan Trainor’s first studio single “All About that Bass,” heralds the importance of loving your curves, and empowers girls everywhere to respect their bodies. More than a message, the single has a pop backing with a hook that’s impossible to get out of your head. The song was nominated for two 2015 Grammys and spent eight non-consecutive weeks at Number One.

MeghanTrainor_S06_014_8x10_HRTrainor’s debut studio album Title came on the heels of “All About That Bass” and also features the current hit “Lips Are Movin.” Upon its release the album knocked Taylor Swift’s 1989 out of Number One in the US. The album also reached Number One in Canada, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.  Title is full of tracks that are brutally honest and speak to the pressures of growing up. While the message of the album is strong, the urge to sing along is even stronger.

Information regarding ticket prices and when tickets will be available is still to be announced. The Erie County Fair website, ecfair.org will make the information available at a later date.

The 2015 Erie County Fair will take place August 12-23, 2015.
