ABOUT HALESTORM

Halestorm's third studio album Into the Wild Life, highlighted by its historic #1 hit Apocalyptic, ascended to the top at Active Rock radio outlets nationwide. It was the first time a female-fronted band has scored #1 hits at the format three times, as well as the first to have #1 songs from two consecutive albums. Halestorm is the fourth-ever female-led rock band to hit #1 at Mainstream Rock radio more than once. The albums' next single Amen debuted on RollingStone.com.

In addition to its extraordinary popular success, Into the Wild Life received unprecedented critical acclaim. "(The album) is a different beast altogether," declared veteran rock journalist Jon Wiederhorn at Yahoo! Music, "one that forsakes everything that has worked for Halestorm thus far and takes a leap into the unknown…the risk of following its instincts has paid off." Halestorm's earlier albums include its self-titled debut album followed by "The Strange Case of..." More on Halestorm at www.halestormrocks.com.

ABOUT SABRINA CARPENTER

17-year-old singer, songwriter and actress Sabrina Carpenter's singles Can't Blame A Girl for Trying and Eyes Wide Open won Radio Disney Music Award "Best Crush Song" and "Best Anthem" respectively. Applauded in the acting world for her role as Maya Hart in Girl Meets World, Young Chloe on The Goodwin Games and guest star on Law & Order SVU, Carpenter has stayed true to her first love of music. Her debut albums Eyes Wide Open and recent album EVOLution reflect her youthful exuberance. Carpenter's current single Thumbs, has been pushing through to Top 40 all across the country with a combined 100+ million streams. Outside of the studio, Carpenter's live shows reveal her boundless energy. She embarked on her first-ever, sold out headline EVOLution Tour, traveling across 35+ cities in the United States, and was special guest on The Vamps UK arena tour this spring.

ABOUT ALEX AIONO

Alex Aiono, the celebrated 20-year-old singer/songwriter whose cleverly arranged mashup of Drake's One Dance and Nicky Iam's Hasta el Amanecer amassed more than 50 million views on YouTube, will be the opening artist at the Sabrina Carpenter Concert on Saturday, August 26 during the 2017 unFAIRgettable MY Maryland State Fair Concert Series presented by M&T Bank. Alex Aiono's One Dance mash-up only hints at the scope of his talents. Aiono, who plays numerous instruments and has written songs with the likes of John Legend, has released three singles Doesn't Get Better, Work the Middle, and Question. "There's so much negative energy in the world right now, I just want people to feel good," Aiono says. "I want them to get up and dance and sing along with me and see how much I love performing for them. My hope is that the positive energy is so contagious that they end up feeling inspired to do what they love too."
