It could be said that COVID-19 and lockdowns has had a significant impact on the way we reach out to culture in our lives, so when we get to hear about events such as music festivals reappearing, then it's not wonder we find ourselves hungry for more. Especially when it comes to new country music.
Yet The Boots and Hearts Music Festival won't be back until August 2022 and although that still feels like a long way away, you can catch a taste of it and be in on the action now...
Applications for Emerging Artist Showcase are being reviewed now by a panel of judges as we speak at Boots and Hearts. They will be carefully going through each application and each aspiring new artist will have the chance to win a single release with Warner Music Canada, a performance at Boots & Hearts Festival in 2022, a professional Songwriting Session plus management Sessions from Invictus Entertainment. That's some prize!
The pressure is on and I should imagine the standards set by each artist this year are going to be very high. There will be some serious talent the judges will have to pick through, and I am delighted to report that Jarrid Lee has decided to go for it and is one of this year's entrants, with his own special brand of northern country music.
What a dream come true this is HUGE NEWS for me. As an emerging global country artist, I am humble to announce I have been selected to participate in a showcase...
The votes have now been cast, but it's sit and wait time as we see what happens next...
There will be 7 top finalists the judges will choose out of all the entrants now submitted. The judges are a selection of the finest internal and industry professionals so they will be casting a very keen music eye looking for the next new hot talent.
So, here's the thing, once the 7 are announced, Boots and Hearts will need YOUR help in voting for the final 8th in the wildcard spot!
Voting for the 8th starts tomorrow EST 1pm, (June 11th 2021.)
