Contemporary Christian band Tenth Avenue North will perform this summer at the California Mid-State Fair.
The group joins an entertainment lineup that includes pop-rock group Maroon 5, genre-defying country-rocker Kid Rock and country acts Sugarland and Lady Antebellum.
Tenth Avenue North released its debut album, “Over and Underneath,” in 2008 -- earning a No. 10 spot on Billboard Magazine’s “Top Christian Albums” list.
The band’s latest album, “The Light Meets the Dark,” came out in May 2010.
Tenth Avenue North has won two Gospel Music Association Dove Awards in recent years: New Artist of the Year and Song of the Year for “By Your Side.”
Their hits include “Hold My Heart,” “Healing Begins” and You Are More.”
Tenth Avenue North is scheduled to play two concerts on July 24 at the Paso Robles Event Center, 2198 Riverside Ave. in Paso Robles. Both performances will be free with fair admission.
The California Mid-State Fair runs July 20 through July 31.
