State Fair of Texas Concert Series presents Colton Dixon
The State Fair will continue its closing weekend with a passionate performance from Colton Dixon. Born and raised in Tennessee, the Christian rock singer began playing piano and writing songs at a young age and eventually began leading worship for his church youth group. Colton first developed a following in 2012 during his time as a contestant on Season 11 of American Idol, where he placed seventh overall. He then debuted his first album A Messenger in 2013, which became the number one selling album of 2013 by a new Christian artist and set a new record for biggest first-week sales in his genre.
