CMW Preview & Contest: Boots & Hearts Hot Shots ft. Drake White, Alee, Andrew Hyatt and more

Boots & Hearts doesn’t take over Burl’s Creek Event Park until August 10… but that doesn’t mean there isn’t B&H country music for us to celebrate before then!

We’ve already been out to see JJ Shiplett and Kelly Prescott on The Road To Boots, and now we’re prepping to hit The Phoenix Concert Theatre during Canadian Music Week as Boots & Hearts + KX Country present the Hot Shots Concert Series.

In 2016, on the exact same stage, we got to see Blackjack Billy, with Meghan Patrick, James Barker Band, Dani Strong, Kansas Stone, and Eric Ethridge – and it was a helluva good time. Heck, click here to check out the pics, they still make us smile!

And now, in 2017, we’re going to get Drake White and The Big Fire, with Alee, Andrew Hyatt, Kendra Kay, and Kris Barclay. It’s a solid lineup, one that promises to bring energy, volume, and the chance to dance while you singalong.

Note: There’s a playlist at the bottom of this post that will give you a taste of the music that’s going to be featured at this showcase… hit play and enjoy!

If you’re a country fan and listen to the radio we’re sure that you already know who Drake White is. But if you don’t know the supporting cast on this bill, be ready to hear some music that you can truly get behind as these artists grow their careers.

We got to see Drake White and The Big Fire last summer – which was a whole lot of fun. From note 1 the band brings the energy that you crave at a live show, and they continue to entertain, involve, and connect with the crowd until they’ve left the stage. We’re quite looking forward to Drake and his hat coming out to sing for us at The Phoenix.

And we’re just as excited for the opening acts as we are for the headliner!

We’ve been on the Alee and Andrew Hyatt bandwagons for a while now, because they’ve have released some killer music that we can’t listen to enough and probably singalong too loud to. And adding new to us acts in Kendra Kay and Kris Barclay brings that element of discovery that Canadian Music Week always delivers, and that we love.

All said and done, this is going to be the most ridiculous Tuesday night we’ve had in a long time. We’re confident in that fact.

We hope to see you there. Click here to learn more about the Boots & Hearts + KX Country Hot Shots Concert Series…
