It is one of the most attended state fairs in the country with over 75,000 visitors per day. On any given day at the fair, Ohioans can watch an 80-foot high dive show, try a legendary deep-fried candy buckeye, or any other food imaginable "on a stick," and even catch a glimpse of the world’s smallest horse.
Rides, entertainment, shopping and more seem to be in limitless supply. With all there is to see and do, Dolly Parton took the stage on Aug. 2 before a sold-out crowd. They hung on every note and story. Fans sang along to their favorites, "Jolene," "Two Doors Down," "Islands in the Stream" and fell in love with new songs from Dolly’s upcoming “Pure & Simple” album.
While performing songs from the upcoming album Tuesday night, Dolly said,
"I did a whole album of songs about love. That's what this ‘Pure & Simple' album is."
The wait is almost over, "Pure & Simple" will release worldwide on Aug. 19. In addition to the title track, new songs include "Outside Your Door" and "Head Over High Heels" among others.
