Easton Corbin Will Headline Bootfest This Year
It takes a LOT of planning to pull off an event like ‘Bootfest’, and it looks like we are well on the way to having another successful festival in Victoria this year!
The entertainment lineup for the 2012 BootFest, which will be Oct. 5 and 6, has been announced. Easton Corbin will headline the two-day festival. He’s the first country male artist to have his first two consecutive singles – “A Little More Country Than That” and “Roll With It”- reach No. 1 in 17 years. Corbin has received 13 country music award nominations in six months.
No Justice from Stillwater, Okla., will serve as the opening act. They’ve received seven Top 10 singles and a pair of No. 1s four years on the Texas radio circuit.
Stoney LaRue has been credited as an icon during the Red Dirt Music movement, according to the event’s website. “I had a fiddle player and people kept telling me, ‘You need to get a band,’” told the Victoria Advocate.
Black Dutch Sioux, who won the War of Rock competition at South by Southwest, will serve as the opening act Saturday. Their sound is described as soulful, blues and southern rock sound, with a twist of Texas country.
Bart Crow, from Maypearl, is known for chart-topping hits such as “Back Down” and “Understand.” He does about 200 shows per year
