Country acts most profitable during Corn Palace Festival
The Corn Palace Festival concert featuring country acts Josh Turner and The Band Perry was the most profitable for the city of Mitchell this year.
The city paid Turner $50,000 for his show and The Band Perry, which opened for Turner, was paid $22,000.
Corn Palace Director Mark Schilling said the city was lucky to land The Band Perry just as its star was rising in Nashville.
