Fescues are cool season grasses. They look great when the temperatures are mild and go dormant in the heat. A warm season grass like zoysia looks dead in spring and beautiful in summer. That's the story of our lawn grasses: there are warm season and cool season varieties. If you live at higher elevation, you have more options. If you don't but you water like crazy and spritz the lawn during the heat of the day, you may be able to get a cool season grass to limp along during summer. Here is what Clemson's extension service has to say: https://hgic.clemson.edu/factsheet/selecting-a-lawn-grass/
