ABERDEEN, S.D.–The Brown County Fair announced today that country music star Jimmie Allen will no longer headline the Saturday night concert at this year’s fair.

Allen was set to headline Saturday August 19th with opening act Gary LeVox, former lead singer of the country music group Rascal Flatts.

Fair Board Manager Rachel Kippley says Allen is no longer scheduled to perform, and the entertainment committee would be considering other artists as a replacement.

Kippley would not comment on whether the decision had to do with Allen currently facing a civil lawsuit brought against him by a former manager accusing him of sexual and verbal abuse.
