Grammy Award-winning country singer Brad Paisley is kicking off the Grandstand concert series at the New York State Fair on August 21.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo says tickets go on sale March 29 at 9 a.m. and cost $45 to $65 through the fair's online ticket seller, Etix.com. Members of Paisley's fan club can purchase standing-area tickets for $85 starting March 19.

Paisley has won three Grammys and 14 Academy of Country Music Awards, including Entertainer of the Year. Opening for him will be singer/songwriter Randy Houser.

Paisley performed at the fair for the first time in 2000.

The fair runs from Aug. 21 through Sept. 1 at the fairgrounds in Syracuse.
