REVIEW: Boots & Hearts 2014 Part Two..




Saturday started off a little more promising - no more dark skies, plus, it was Luke Bryan day at Boots and Hearts. We took the opportunity to explore the festival grounds a little and check out the Miss Boots and Hearts competition. Also on the Sirius XM stage were David Lee Murphy and Sawyer Brown, it was great to see a festival that included not only new talent but well-known artists from years ago as well.

The crowd slowly started to emerge from their tents and stumble over to the music as Tim Hicks took to the main stage to belt out hits like Here Comes the Thunder and Stronger Beer







 

When it was time for Lee Brice to hit the stage the crowd was visibly larger and ready to party. Lee Brice is not only an amazing performer, but also extremely nice and incredibly charming. We were thrilled for the chance to see him perform again and he didn’t disappoint!




























Next up was Luke Bryan, Saturday’s headliner. Luke Bryan is arguably the biggest artist in country music right now, playing record breaking stadium shows to crowds of over 60,000, and hasn’t played a show on Ontario soil since 2012. It was clear that Bryan was a major draw for many festival goers. Bryan’s energy, enthusiasm, crowd interaction and sweet dance moves had many thinking “I Don’t Want This Night to End”! 











Luke Bryan’s set is high energy and action packed but he slowed it down as he sat at the piano for a couple of ballads, even inviting tour mate Lee Brice out to sing a version of the Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl” (a song written by Brice), much to the crowd’s delight. Luke Bryan proved that he’s more than just good looks (don’t get me wrong – the tight jeans and ass shaking are much appreciated), but for a relatively new performer he surprises you with all of the hits he’s singing that you almost forgot he had.
