Just when we thought we couldn’t possibly get more excited about Boots & Hearts 2017, they go and give us more to smile about!

Boots & Hearts Lineup Additions
And… Doc Walker, Canadian legends, and makers of the new record, Weathervane, will be front and centre on Thursday night, headlining and running the kick off party!
We have been super happy to have Doc Walker back on the Canadian country scene, and this is just another chance to celebrate.
Just as happy as that makes us though, seeing the young talent added to the festival is awesome. AND we LOVE the fact that we’re adding more women to the stages with Alee, Delta Rae, Vanessa Marie Carter, Leaving Thomas, and Nice Horse bringing amazing female talent to the B&H crowds.
Now, to change gears for a minute, we want to fill you in on some things we learned about the 2017 Boots & Hearts festival during a chat with Ryan Howes…
★ There are changes coming to the stages – with brand new stages coming to the grounds for both the main and front porch performances.
★ And, the front porch stage will be moving, closer to the main stage, in an awesome wooded area that we’ve hung out in during WayHome. It’s going to be awesome for daytime and late night partying.
★ We’re getting a beach. Yup. A beach.
★ VIP ticket holders will experience more cool features and bonuses in 2017.
★ The camping experience is getting an update and upgrade. Look for new layouts, a 24 hour general store, and upgraded market area that will offer all kinds of awesome stuff.
★ And while it’s not new, we have been told that Buzz Brainard will be back with SiriusXM on a new stage, in a new spot, and with awesome programming.
All in all, Boots & Hearts 2017 is shaping up to be a pretty fantastic time. Headliners Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, and Brantley Gilbert will put on kick ass shows. Canadian stars like Chad Brownlee, Jess Moskaluke, and Cold Creek County will shine and make us proud. And there is so much emerging talent that you are going to fall in love with, if you haven’t already.
Remember, you’re going to see and sing along to JJ Shiplett, Jessica Mitchell, Andrew Hyatt, Aubrie Sellers, Endless Summer, Kelly Prescott, Midland and more.
