Bookmark and Share

In celebration of AG Day, the country star that wrote "The American Farmer" performed for South Dakotans at the Sioux Empire Fair Wednesday.

Mayor Mike Huether, Senator John Thune and Congresswoman Kristi Noem presented country artist Steve Azar a plaque that recognized him for his song "The American Farmer."

Azar said the lyrics remind the people about how important current farmers and future farmers are to agriculture.

"They're heroes, super heroes. That's why I felt like I put a cape on them and talk about the ultimate gambler and the people that drop to their knees more than anyone is the farmer. You just got to keep praying, keep working hard and hope that their kids fall in their footsteps and we got to pray for rain," said Azar.

Azar said he grew up in the Mississippi Delta and has watched his family and friends go through farming successes and struggles.
