We knew that something was coming at some point today, we didn’t expect to see it this early in the morning but we did. I giant full page newspaper ad sent to us by a reader shows Florida Georgia Line, Alan Jackson and Thomas Rhett as the 2018 Boots and Hearts headliners.

We can now confirm officially that this lineup is correct. With more artists to be announced at a later date.

Tickets for Boots and Hearts are currently on-sale at www.bootsandhearts.com with general admission tickets priced at $229.99.

“We’re thrilled with our headliner announcement for Boots and Hearts’ seventh year,” said Eva Dunford, Founding Partner, Republic Live. “For fans to see Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett return to our festival, when we’ve all watched their careers skyrocket, it’s a really rewarding experience. These are some of the world’s biggest country music stars and they’re back! Adding to that excitement is Alan Jackson, with his first ever Boots and Hearts performance. This will be Alan’s only Canadian performance for 2018, and it’s such an honour to welcome him to the Boots family. We have no doubt that with more incredible names like Billy Currington, Dallas Smith and Brett Young, plus even more to come, fans are set to experience the absolute best of country music this year at Boots and Hearts.”
