Megan Trainor had to cancel her Minnesota State Fair stop on September 1st due to needing throat surgery. She's been replaced with teen pop band R5.

R5 is made up of four siblings, a family friend and all of their names begin with the letter 'R' (Ross, Riker, Rocky, Rydel and friend Ratliff). Ross is most known for his role of Austin in the the Disney TV show 'Austin & Ally' and Riker has been on a few episodes of 'Glee'.  The band formed in 2009 and the pop rock group has been gaining in popularity ever since.

I honestly never heard of R5, so I was a little surprised to find out they were Meghan Trainor's replacement. You can find ticket information on Minnesota State Fair's website and let me know in the comments what you think of this replacement choice. Below is the latest single from R5 and a little taste of what to expect from a band you might not have heard of.
