"Sugar Ray," is the first of several great acts to perform at this year's fair," said Stoehr. "We are very excited about how this year's concert series is shaping up, and we will be announcing more acts soon."
Sugar Ray has sold over 8 million records. The band's single, "Fly," reached #2 on the Adult Top 40 charts, #1 on the Modern Rock Tracks and #1 on Top 40 Mainstream charts. Other chart-toppers include "Every Morning," "Someday," and "When It's Over." Their album "Floored," went double-platinum. Sugar Ray's success rocketed McGrath to pop-star status, as he graced the covers of Rolling Stone and Spin. He was also named People magazine's "Sexiest Man Alive" and named "Sexiest Rocker."
"This is my life's work," said Sugar Ray's McGrath. "People say, 'You're still in the band?' This is what I do! I'm gonna be Sugar Ray 'til I die. I've been lucky enough to fit a uniform, I'm gonna wear it 'til the wheels fall off."
