GREENSBORO — Rodney Atkins, Saliva, Trapt and Tantric will perform at the 121st annual Central Carolina Fair from Sept. 6 to 15 at the Greensboro Coliseum complex.

The fair also will feature rides, carnival food and games, musical entertainment and attractions for all ages.

Country artist Atkins will perform on Sept. 14 at the White Oak Amphitheater with special guest Dillon Carmichael. Radio station Q104.1 will present the show.

Gates open at 5 p.m. Music starts at 5:30 p.m.

In May, Atkins released his fifth studio album, "Caught Up in the Country." While his storied career has reached such heights as being named the Top New Male Vocalist at the 2006 ACM Awards, it has been more than seven years since "Take a Back Road," his last record of new material.

Saliva’s mix of hard rock and hip-hop credits them with a double-platinum certification for its sophomore album, "Every Six Seconds," which featured “Your Disease,” the hit single that earned a Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance.

Trapt has traveled the world with rock and alternative rock’s biggest name, while selling 2.5 million records worldwide. Their eponymous debut album was certified platinum and featured the No. 1 hit single “Headstrong.”
