First up was Chad Brownlee, who we just saw at the Blue Jays pre-game – and who we are happy we saw again. This guy puts on a great show, and the fans knew it. There was a nice cheer to start off the show when the band took the stage, and the evening crowd kept filing in throughout the set to make it a pretty great group of people singing and dancing.
Chad is also incredibly handsome, which we saw people saying both in the crowd and on the side of the stage. It’s not news to anyone who has seen his face before, but it’s worth mentioning – just look at the pics.
But our favourite thing, and we’re pretty sure Chad loved it too, was looking over the crowd and seeing how many people knew the words and were singing along.

After a short turn over break, Dallas Smith came out to a great crowd reaction, which I’m sure felt good for a guy who wasn’t originally booked for that slot. In a great move, Dallas slid over from Sunday to fill in for Little Big Town, and it was the perfect decision. From the first song the Boots & Hearts crowd was jacked up and ready to party. And the rock and roll country sound was a great lead-in to headliner Eric Church.
Dallas isn’t new to the performing thing, he did with Default and now he does it country – and he’s not new to Boots & Hearts, we saw him in 2012 and 2014, and this was bigger and better and showed that this is a guy who just keeps putting in the work and keeps making new fans.
The 19 song set gave us a little bit of everything with a cover of Pontoon as a Get Well Soon tribute to LBT’s Jimi Westbrook, some Imagine Dragons’ Radioactive, a brand new song Kids With Cars, and all of the hits we were ready for and sing along to on the radio all the time.
Somewhere north of 25,000 people loved every minute of Dallas Smith’s set. And that includes us.
