FARMINGTON -- Elvis -- well, at least a film and television star who played him -- will perform at this year's Davis County Fair.
The Davis County Commission has approved a $2,500 contract with entertainer Tyler Hilton. The fair will be Aug. 17-20 at Legacy Events Center, 151 S. 1100 West, Farmington.
Hilton will perform at 7 p.m. Aug. 19 on the fair's main stage. The performance is free, said Megan Hatch, fair coordinator.
With this year's fair theme being "Viva Las Davis," booking someone who played the role of Elvis Presley appears to be a good fit for this year's entertainment lineup.
"Because our theme is Viva Las Davis, it is a neat set of coincidences that we were able to get (Hilton), who has played Elvis," said Commissioner John Petroff Jr.
"I am super-excited for (Hilton) to come," Hatch said. "He played Elvis Presley in the film 'Walk the Line.' "
Hilton was also a regular on the television show "One Tree Hill," which appeared on the CW network, Hatch said.
Hilton has several songs featured on the soundtracks for "One Tree Hill" and "Walk the Line."
Hilton, 26, is a singer, songwriter and guitarist. He is expected to release his latest album, "The Storms We Share," this year, Hatch said.
The album is a follow-up to his 2004 major label debut, "The Tracks of Tyler Hilton," which spawned the singles "When It Comes" and "How Love Should Be."
Admission to the fair is free.
