Music Icon, Lionel Richie has been added to the already star-studded Boots and Hearts Music Festival, taking place at Canadian Tire Motorsport Park on August 10-12. Richie has sold over 100 million albums, had 22 Top 10 hits, received five Grammys, an Academy Award for Best Original Song, a Golden Globe and a host of other awards from virtually every other major entertainment organization. His latest platinum album, Tuskegee, a country duets album that features songs with Blake Shelton, Jennifer Nettles, Jason Aldean and more, hit #1 on the Billboard Charts. It is the second-best selling album of the year, and makes Richie the second artist (behind Ray Charles) to ever have a #1 on both the Country and R&B/Hip-Hop Charts.
“We are truly thrilled to have Lionel Richie perform on the same night as Carrie Underwood, and couldn’t be more excited about all great new additions to the line-up” said Shannon McNevan, partner and executive director, Republic Live, the promoter and producer of the festival. “Country music fans are in for a memorable festival. Where else could you see such a wide-range of talent like Tim McGraw, Kid Rock, Sheryl Crow and Alabama – all while camping with friends or family?”
