HunterGirl fans take heart. You can still hear her perform as she will be headed to the York State Fair next month.

The country singer was one of the three final contestants on American Idol this spring. She came in second place to Noah Thompson, who was named the winner, last month.

HunterGirl is joining the lineup with Tracy Byrd for a grandstand concert at 7:30 p.m. on July 29.

Toby Keith was expected to perform on that date, but he had to cancel. He recently announced that he has been battling stomach cancer.

HunterGirl received praise from the American Idol judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie. She performed Bruce Springsteen's classic, "Dancing in the Dark," and her original song, "Redbird," during the final show.

"You’re comfortable. This is your stage," Perry told her. "You did that and more. I don’t think you’re a star. I think you’re a supernova."

Tickets go on sale Friday for the fair concert. The cost is $25 for general admission.
