Here is your 2012 Arkansas State Fair musical lineup

Posted By on Tue, Aug 28, 2012 at 2:57 PM

Kansas is one of the headlining acts at this years Arkansas State Fair.
  • Kansas is one of the headlining acts at this year's Arkansas State Fair.

What do America, The Ohio Players, Think Floyd USA (Pink Floyd tribute), Joe Darr and The Vista Cruze Band, Dueling Pianos, The See, Dustin Lynch, Kansas and Christian Simmons all have in common besides the fact that they're all headlining the Wendy's Main Stage at this year's Arkansas State Fair, Oct. 12-21?

It's hard to say. Kansas has a song called "Song for America" but they're probably talking about the actual place America and not the band America, who wrote the timeless classic rock hit "Sister Golden Hair." But who knows? Kansas has another song called "Dust in the Wind," which isn't literally the same as Dustin Lynch, but you can interchange them and it kinda works: "Duuustiiiiin Lynch / All we are is Dustiiiiin Lynch." Eh?

America wrote a song called "A Horse with No Name," and the guys in The See have been through the desert on a horse with no name, only it wasn't a horse with no name, it was a van named Harold. And it wasn't the desert, it was Interstate 40. But still, it's pretty close, right?

OK, so maybe these acts don't have all that much in common, but isn't that the point of the Arkansas State Fair? To give a little something to everybody, so they can all have a good time? That sounds right.

The full lineup is after the jump.
