The Clay County Fair has landed the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, Jeff Foxworthy, for the 2012 Clay County Fair.

In addition to his redneck jokes, Jeff Foxworthy will explore the humor in everyday family interactions and human nature on the Grandstand stage at the 2012 Clay County Fair at 6:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16, the final evening of the fair.

"A night of side-splitting laughter will be the perfect way to cap off the 2012 Clay County Fair," Jeremy Parsons, fair manager, said. "It is an honor to bring of comedian of Jeff Foxworthy's caliber to Spencer."

A multiple Grammy Award nominee and best-selling author of more than 26 books, Foxworthy is one of the most respected and successful comedians in the country. He was the host of the television hit show "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader" and executive produced and starred in "Foxworthy's Big Night Out."

Foxworthy also starred in and produced the television series, "Blue Collar TV," which he created for the WB network. "Blue Collar TV" was created due to the success of "Blue Collar Comedy Tour: The Movie" and the concert tour of the same name. The movie premiered on Comedy Central and was the highest rated movie in the channel's history. To date, the movie has sold more than 4 million units.

Ticket information for this entertaining evening, including the announcement of an opening act, will be available this spring.

The 2012 Clay County Fair, Sept. 8-16, will feature world-class Grandstand entertainment, seven stages of free entertainment, GoldStar Amusements on the Midway, over 650 commercial exhibits, and thousands of competitive displays.
