Jess Moskaluke


2017 JUNO Award nominee and platinum-selling country artist Jess Moskaluke will once again grace the Boots And Hearts stage this summer.

The acclaimed singer-songwriter recently shared her catchy new single “Drive Me Away”, which follows up her 2016 radio hits “Elevator”, “Kiss Me Quiet” and the year’s #1 most played song at Canadian country radio, “Take Me Home”.

The first Canadian female country artist since Shania Twain to achieve platinum-selling status for the infectious hit single “Cheap Wine and Cigarettes”, and over 19 million views on YouTube as well as two Top 10 singles and back to back years (2015 & 2016), as the most played female Canadian artist at radio confirms that Moskaluke is no stranger to the spotlight. With a new album in the works for later this year, it is apparent that all eyes will remain on Canada’s reigning queen of country as she continues to make waves through 2017 and beyond.

Don’t miss Moskaluke this summer as she joins country heavyweights Keith Urban, Luke Bryan and Brantley Gilbert on the main stage!

Luke Bryan

Since the debut of his first album in 2007, Luke Bryan has placed 17 singles at No.1 and sold nearly eight million albums.

His newest album, Kill The Lights, which is certified Platinum, debuted at No. 1 on both the Billboard Top 200 (his third to do so) and Top Country Albums charts, and has now sold 3.5 million tracks with over 400 million streams.

JJ Shiplett

Rugged, raspy and reserved, JJ Shiplett is a true artist in every sense of the word.  Unapologetically himself, the Alberta born singer-songwriter and performer is both bold in range and musical creativity and has a passion and reverence for the art of music and performance that has captured the attention of music fans across the country.

Recorded in Toronto and Nashville, Shiplett’s new album, Something To Believe In, serves as a soulful and emotive collection of songs that perfectly showcases the Alberta-born Shiplett’s passion and reverence for the art of music and performance. It’s aesthetically minded and stubbornly unyielding, while at the heart, the self-penned LP combines honest lyricism with Shiplett’s impressive vocal range and effortlessly tracks the last two years of his story.

Tucker Beathard

Singer and songwriter Tucker Beathard has won an audience for his rowdy but heartfelt stories of Southern life, informed by rock, pop, and hip-hop as much as contemporary country.

A native of Nashville, Beathard was raised in a musical family, playing guitar and drums in a band with his brothers by the age of ten. The son of country songwriter Casey Beathard, Tucker’s own rebellious teenage years were the inspiration for his father’s song “Homeboy,” which was a number one country hit for Eric Church in 2011. Forgoing a baseball scholarship after he was sidelined by a shoulder injury, Tucker decided to pursue his own career as a songwriter. His rock and country mix was first heard on the self-released 2015 EP The Demos, Vol. 1 and subsequent single “Rock On.” After the EP earned attention with both country fans and the press, Beathard signed a publishing deal with Big Machine and a recording contract with its DOT Records affiliate. The re-released “Rock On” single became a Top Ten country hit, and in October 2016, it appeared on his first DOT release, a six-song EP called Fight Like Hell.
