Dallas Smith, Brett Kissel, Natalie Stovall & The Drive and The Reklaws to perform as part of Thursday Night Event 

BOWMANVILLE, ON, May 30, 2014 /CNW/ - Republic Live, organizers of the Boots and Hearts Music Festival, announced earlier today that Coors Banquet is joining the festival family as the "Official Beer of Boots and Hearts". As part of the partnership, the brewer will lead-off the sold-out weekend with the Coors Banquet Kick-Off Party, which features headliner Dallas Smith, along with Brett Kissel, Natalie Stovall & the Drive and The Reklaws, all set to take the stage.  The Coors Banquet Kick-Off Party is included as an added value part of the full event ticket and gates will open to Canada's largest country music festival on Thursday, July 31st at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park in Bowmanville, Ontario.  As the official beer partner, Coors Banquet will be on-site all weekend, with additional partner offerings including Coors Light. 

"Fans have been asking for months about what our plans are for Thursday night and we couldn't be more excited to have Coors Banquet partnering with us in taking our kickoff party to the next level," said Shannon McNevan, Executive Director, Republic Live.  "To be able to have Dallas Smith headline the party straight off his American tour with Florida Georgia Line and smash success with "Tippin' Point" along with recent Juno award winner and flourishing Canadian star Brett Kissel, it's going to be one heck of a party and set the tone for the whole weekend.  We are also excited to bring Natalie Stovall and the Drive to Canada as their live show is like nothing we've ever seen before and we're so proud of our 2013 Emerging Artist Showcase winners, The Reklaws, whose new single will be dropping in a big way between now and Boots." 

"Since Coors Banquet arrived north of the border in August of last year, we've been one of the fastest growing beer brands in Canada. This is a great opportunity for us to partner with one of Canada's' top country music events to create an experience and thank our fans for all of their support," said Sara Ross, Assistant Marketing Manager, Coors Banquet

About Coors Banquet
Coors Banquet was the first beer recipe created by Adolph Coors in 1873. Until 1991 it was only available in the Western United States, prompting a cult following with presidents, movie stars and consumers who had to bring the beer home from Colorado. The legend of the Banquet name goes back to the late 1800s, when thirsty miners threw celebratory banquets with Coors as the honorary beer because of its superior craftsmanship. It is imported from Golden, Colorado and is currently available in cans and draught at select retailers, bars, and restaurants.
