In case you’ve been living under a rock, Oprah brings her show to the State Fair Monday. It should probably attract a few people. They are saying 4,000. Personally, I’d say a gajillion people but what do I know. Oprah seems to have that kind of drawing power. To top it off, Martina McBride will be performing as well. The deets on the event sound surprisingly easy considering the magnitude of her appearance in an already crowded place. However, you need to know this now in case you have full intention of seeing her live.
The information follows the jump.
