Boots & Hearts 2015 Lineup Announcement Round 3 Review

Boots and Hearts 2015 HeadlinersBoots & Hearts delivered on their promise of a “big announcement” when they released a new list of 23 acts that will be part of the B&H 2015 lineup this August at Burl’s Creek Event Park outside of Barrie.

The new names bring the total lineup to 31 acts that will take the stage August 6-9, 2015 and we can’t wait to see each and every one of them take their turn in front of the crowd.

Before we break some of those new additions down for you, here’s a reminder of the artists previously announced for Boots & Hearts…

Florida Georgia Line – Eric Church – Brad Paisley – Little Big Town
High Valley – Justin Moore – Dallas Smith – Chad Brownlee

Now, let’s have a look at the 23 acts announced on Wednesday to the list…

Thomas Rhett – Frankie Ballard – David Nail – Maddie & Tae – Canaan Smith
Kira Isabella – The Stellas
with Lennon and Maisy – Mackenzie Porter – Dylan Scott Small Town Pistols – Wes Mack – Trinity Bradshaw – The Lovelocks – Leah Daniels
Ty Baynton – Kaitlin Kozell – Them Dang Rattlers – Genevieve Fisher – Melissa Payne Jesse Labelle – Kate Suhr – Abby Stewart

To have a little fun with these new names we’re going to break out some categories that most of these acts fit into for us without even really thinking about it all to hard. Some acts will appear in more than one category… and that’s totally okay by us!

Acts we’ve seen before and can’t wait to see again at Boots & Hearts 2015!

Thomas Rhett Boots and Hearts 2015Thomas Rhett We saw Thomas play a small, intimate set at the Rock ‘N’ Horse in Toronto to help push his It Goes Like This album. He was a whole lot of fun in that small setting, but we have no doubt that his energy and charm are going to translate to a bigger stage and much bigger audience this summer.
Kira Isabella Kira is one of Canadian countries premier artists, as well as a super sweet person. She’s been up on the Boots & Hearts stage before, and with her new music ready to roll, this should be a great set.
Mackenzie Porter Ms. Porter has been making a name for herself in music and on TV with the success of Misfit Parade on country radio and her stint as Naomi Bohannon on AMC’s Hell on Wheels. She’s a hell of a fiddle player with a voice to match.
Trinity Bradshaw Boots and Hearts 2015Trinity Bradshaw It’s no secret that Trinity is one of our favs and as the winner of 2014’s SiriusXM Emerging Artist Showcase, she won the right to a spot on the main stage in 2015. After opening for Shania Twain late last summer we know she’s ready for this.
Leah Daniels Another great add for the festival, Leah is an Ontario girl with a ton of talent and a great smile to go with it. Trish caught up with her at the 2014 CNE in Toronto and now she’s taking a step up.
Ty Baynton – Ty was the runner up in the SiriusXM contest at 2014’s festival and he put on a helluva show when he got the chance. We aren’t at all surprised to see his name on this list with a chance to do it again.

Female Performers at Boots & Hearts 2015!

Country radio and festivals like B&H have been under criticism for the last couple years for the lack of female presence in the genre. But with this new list of acts for the 2015 festival Boots & Hearts have made a clear statement that women are back!

Maddie & Tae – Kira Isabella – Lennon and Maisy – Mackenzie Porter
Trinity Bradshaw – The Lovelocks – Leah Daniels – Kaitlin Kozell
Genevieve Fisher – Melissa Payne – Kate Suhr – Abby Stewart

We are impressed and happy to see 12 female acts (solo and duos) on this list of 31 performers. Add in Little Big Town, Small Town Pistols, The Stellas, who all have female voices in the band and we’re at nearly 50% – exactly where we should be!

Canadian Content at Boots & Hearts 2015!

Republic Live is a Canadian company and have always done a great job of putting Canadian talent on stage. From Terri Clark and Paul Brandt in year 1 – to this talented list in year 4, we have no complaints!

Kira Isabella – The Stellas – Lennon and Maisy – Mackenzie Porter – Wes Mack
Small Town Pistols – Trinity Bradshaw – The Lovelocks – Leah Daniels – Ty Baynton
Kaitlin Kozell – Them Dang Rattlers – Genevieve Fisher – Melissa Payne
Jesse Labelle – Kate Suhr – Abby Stewart

Add Dallas Smith, Chad Brownlee and High Valley to those names and you have 20 Canadian Acts set to take the stage at Boots & Hearts this summer!

Acts we haven’t seen yet, and totally want to at Boots & Hearts 2015!

Maddie and Tae Boots and Hearts 2015Maddie & Tae – These girls lit the world on fire in 2014 with Girl in a Country Song and they’re making waves with Fly to start 2015!
Small Town Pistols – We’ve been listening to Amanda and Tyler Wilkinson sing since they were The Wilkinsons, and now (after 2 years of predicting incorrectly) they are finally coming to sing in front of us, in person!
Wes Mack – This young man is on fire, currently hitting radio stations like crazy pushing Before You Drive Me Crazy and has found success as it’s become the most added song in Country Radio this week. Plus, we hear he puts on a fun show.
Lennon and Maisy Boots and Hearts 2015Lennon & Maisy – These 2 are adorable, talented, Canadian and super awesome. If you’ve seen them on YouTube or ABC’s Nashville you know what I mean. I can’t wait to see them up on stage with The Stellas who just happen to be Lennon and Maisy’s parents.
David Nail – Whatever She’s Got is the kind of song that makes us want to sing along every single time. We can’t wait to hear it live with thousands of other voices singing along too!
Canaan Smith – Smith stormed out of the gate with Love You Like that, and just like Nail, we can’t wait to see him up on stage so we can sing along!

So there you go. We’ve got 31 acts lined up for Boots & Hearts 2015… and while that could be everyone, we wouldn’t be surprised if there are more surprise announcements!

Stay tuned for features coming up with The Lovelocks as well as more B&H performers AND Boots & Hearts preview posts that will include Trinity Bradshaw and her thoughts on some of the 2015 artists.
