“Country music fans are not going to want to miss Boots and Hearts this summer with the line up we have in-store,” said Shannon McNevan, Executive Director, Republic Live. “Our fans have been asking for both of these bands for a couple years now. Justin created a massive amount of momentum with his last album and electric live shows, plus his much-anticipated new album is set to drop in the New Year. Little Big Town is country-music’s harmony powerhouse and CMA Vocal Group of the year for three years running. Their new album is huge and they’re live show is tailor-made for the Boots faithful. After blowing the roof off our kick-off party last year we couldn’t be more excited to have Dallas Smith with his new album rocking the main stage, as well as Boots ’12 alumni Chad Brownlee who is fired up to bring his new live show to Burl’s Creek this August. Our fans love the High Valley guys and say they feel like they’re part of the Boots family at this point. We’re super excited that their current single County Line is about to go Gold and is climbing the charts on both sides of the border. With another artist announcement coming in the new year we’re poised for another epic celebration of all things country.”
