Parking Lot Party: Lee Brice, Tim Hicks and Sawyer Brown at Boots & Hearts 2014

Lee Brice Singing Boots and Hearts 2014Saturday was a busy day at Boots and Hearts with music from 1 to 11 on the front porch and main stages. It gave us some awesome moments, some great performances, and (thanks to Trish) some pretty cool pictures to share.

One of the biggest acts of the day was Lee Brice in the opening slot for headliner, Luke Bryan. Brice is making a big name for himself in country music right now, and it’s showing with his busy schedule. Hell, he played the Grand Ole Opry on Wednesday before making his way to Bowmanville.

Brice opened his set to a loud cheer and gave the crowd a set of songs that they know and clearly love. Hard To Love, Friends We Won’t Forget, Don’t Believe Everything You Think all had hands up and smiles on faces. It helps that Lee Brice was charming and engaging with the crowd, working them well for his set and to get them warmed up for later.

Note: Speaking of later, Luke Bryan brought Brice back out sing Crazy Girl which he wrote for the Eli Young Band, and a short rendition of Canadian classic, Summer of ‘69.

Brice’s set also included fantastic versions of Woman Like You and Love Like Crazy before he left briefly and came back for an encore wearing a Boots & Hearts hockey sweater with Brice and #14 on the back, matching Paul Brandt’s from Friday night.

The encore was exactly what the crowd was waiting for with Lee Brice’s most recent hit, I Don’t Dance, and his drinkfest anthem, Parking Lot Party.

Great job by Lee, you can check out more pics from his set at Trish’s blog HERE!

Tim Hicks Boots and Hearts 2014Before Brice, a Canadian country star was on the main stage.

Tim Hicks has become synonymous with Boots and Hearts – competing in the SiriusXM Emerging Artist Showcase in 2012, playing the Kick Off Party in 2013, and now launching a new album and rocking the main stage in 2014.

Trish did a great job of snapping pics of Tim and covering his day – check out the full review and more pics HERE!

Sawyer Brown Boots and Hearts 2014Also on Saturday was a band that I have loved for 20 years. Sawyer Brown had hits all over country radio when I was growing up, and I know the words to many of them.

So seeing even part of their set at Boots and Hearts made me a very happy boy. From the second they stepped on stage there was all kinds of energy, with lead singer Mark Miller dancing and jumping and looking like a 26 year old, not a 56 year old.

I was especially happy to hear radio hits, Drive Me Wild, The Boys And Me, and 6 Days On The Road… those are the songs I remember from the Crook and Chase Country Countdown on Peterborough’s Country 105.1 when I was a kid – and I still love them to this day.

Added to Sunday’s performance by Neal McCoy, Sawyer Brown helped add some nostalgia to Boots and Hearts 2014, and I think it was a better festival because of it. I can’t wait to see who they bring up to Bowmanville in 2015 to sing us some classic country hits.

Work Hard. Play Harder. Be Awesome.
