We had the awesome opportunity of sitting down with Lennon & Maisy last month when they spent a short time back on home turf in Canada at Boots & Hearts Music Festival!!

Check out our interview where the girls talk about the upcoming season of Nashville, which starts back this week (Season 4 kicked off on September 23rd on ABC!!) - including a hint about some Daphne drama, their costume hits and misses, songs for the show and their love of ketchup chips!!

REVIEW: Them Dang Rattlers, Dallas Smith & Cold Creek County bring country to the Canadian National Exhibition!!

A sure sign that the summer is coming to the end, the Canadian National Exhibition capped off the 2015 season Labour Day weekend by bringing in some great country acts. No stranger to the genre, the CNE/The Ex has been home to some great shows this summer, including country stars Brett Kissel, Dallas Smith, Cold Creek County, Autumn Hill, Alan Doyle (formerly of Great Big Sea bringing in some maritime charm) and Them Dang Rattlers taking over the main stage band shell.

The event did not disappoint from the electrifying shows (which included an onstage proposal at the Dallas Smith/Cold Creek County show - she said yes!) to the wide variety of attractions to the ever popular/horrifying fried food experiments. This year welcomed more rides and games for the kids, a casino, an arts and crafts building full of kitschy and cool gifts and homemade goods, the farm, Celebrity Chefs, a Big Bang Theory art exhibit, stunt shows, parades and so much more.

The farm is the place to go to visit all kinds of livestock and learn more about where all of our farm fresh food comes from, but by far the highlight this year, was the butter sculpture contest which included an entry/homage to the great Toronto Dead Racoon memorial from earlier this summer.. (if you don't know what i'm talking about, the jist of the story is that a poor racoon met his demise in the financial district of Toronto and it took the city quite a long time to pick him up, so city residents began leaving tokens of respect, including flowers, a framed photo and many more trinkets around him as the day went on, you can get the whole Buzzfeed pictorial rundown HERE) Now he has been forever immortalized (or at least as long as refrigerated) in butter!!

Special Thanks for Ray Williams, Staff Photographer from Liveinlimbo for his amazing photos from the Dallas Smith & Cold Creek County show.
