TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Republic Live, producers of Boots and Hearts Music Festival, today announced the highly anticipated line-up of headliners for the 2022 festival including multi-Grammy award-winning country music superstar Shania Twain. Joined by Sam Hunt and Florida Georgia Line, Twain returns home to headline Canada's largest camping and country music festival taking place from August 4-7, 2022, at Burl's Creek Event Grounds in Oro-Medonte, Ontario.
"Having internationally acclaimed icon Shania Twain perform at Boots & Hearts Music Festival at Burl's Creek is an absolute dream come true," said Eva Dunford, Founding Partner, Republic Live. "As a Canadian, family run business whose pride and joy is this festival, we couldn't be more excited about the incredible headliners confirmed for our comeback year. It will be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Boots and Hearts will be Shania's only North American festival performance for 2022 and her first-ever appearance at a Canadian music festival, so it's an even greater honour to have her join the Boots family. We can't wait to welcome home the artists, fans, partners, suppliers, and staff who make Boots & Hearts an incredible experience."
Joining Shania Twain as 2022 headliners are country music superstars Sam Hunt and Florida Georgia Line. While Sam Hunt's first ever Canadian performance was on the side stage at Boots and Hearts in 2014, we are thrilled to have him headline the main stage this year. Florida Georgia Line return to Boots & Hearts as fan favourites for the third time following their electric headlining appearances in 2015 and 2018.
Adding to the excitement surrounding the return of Boots and Hearts, Twain's appearance on Sunday August 7th will feature all-Canadian, all-female main stage performances from start to finish. As a leading country music festival in North America, Boots and Hearts and Republic Live are incredibly proud to be celebrating female artists with a first-ever all-female dedicated main stage headlined by the iconic Shania Twain.
"As a Canadian team focused on representing Canada in the global festival market, we're honoured to host a Canadian country superstar on Canadian soil to celebrate everything she's done for our genre," said Brooke Dunford, Director of Booking and Brand Strategy, Republic Live. "For many of our fans and fellow artists, Shania Twain has had a big impact on what we know and love about country music. It was important to us to celebrate her success as a female in country music and beyond, with incredible female talent that is both making waves across the border and within Canada. We're extremely proud of all the female artists in our line-up and we're excited to showcase their talents alongside the Queen of Country. There's no doubt the theme for 2022 is LET'S GO GIRLS! "
