2018 ARTIST LINEUP
Country legends Doc Walker have perfected their Heartland Acoustic show, inspired by the heart of our vast country. “Heart of the Heartland”, the first single from Doc Walker’s current record, Weathervane, articulates the concept, while paying homage to small town pride. Heartland is about all of the lives that were lived, and the memories that were created in any given town. The Heartland Acoustic show brings fans closer than ever to the band they know and love, against a backdrop of connection to our heritage and unshakable hometown pride. With over 20 Top 10 singles in total, multiple CCMA Awards and a JUNO win, Doc Walker is one of the most recognized Canadian country acts of the past two decades.
Yellowbird burst onto the country music scene in 2006 with the release of his debut album Life Is Calling My Name. Garnering four Top-10 radio singles and videos, the CD led Yellowbird to countless awards and accolades, including the coveted CCMA award for "Rising Star of the Year," the "Best Country Recording" award at the Native American Music Awards (for North America), and the "Aboriginal Entertainer of the Year" award at the Aboriginal People's Choice Awards (for North America). Growing up in Hobbema, Alberta, Yellowbird, who is Cree, was always a typical cowboy. His parents participated in the rodeo circuit and Shane was roping and riding from a very early age. Faced with a severe stuttering problem, a speech therapist suggested to Shane that he sing his sentences to help him speak clearly. The technique proved successful -- so successful, in fact, that Yellowbird began entering and winning several singing contests. The life of this cowboy quickly turned away from roping and riding and moved toward that of another dream, being a successful country music artist.

The event was started as a memorial to a local Millet man, Mike Gauthier, whose love for music shined throughout the community, the interest in the festival grew at a rapid rate and we are anticipating upwards of 2,000 people this year. The purpose of this event is to let young musicians shine in a free all day long event that is great for the whole family!
