Like 3,000,000 other Iowans, Principal Percussionist Aaron Williams is heartbroken about missing the 2020 Iowa State Fair. To commemorate what would have been this year's opening day, Aaron's put together a special rendition of the Iowa Corn Song involving plenty of percussion, a field trip to the tallest ear of corn in the state, an enviable collection of State Fair t-shirts, and classic Iowa icons throughout. Enjoy!
