LIMA — Nashville Crush, the hottest country music band in western Ohio, has been added to fill in the last remaining night of grandstand entertainment at the 2014 Allen County Fair. “Crush” will perform at 8 p.m. on Aug. 22.

“The band has always wanted to play the ‘big stage’ at the fair,” Allen County Fair General Manager David Grimm said. “The Fair’s entertainment committee looked at a lot of different entertainers but when they found out the band was available, it was a ‘no-brainer’ to book them. The band plays a lot of venues but their followers just can’t get enough of them.”
