So after an amazing 72 hour party weekend last year at Lebreton Flatts, Capital Hoedown announced its line-up for this summer and its new location ....at Walter Baker Park in Kanata It's a very nice park, I'll give it that but they better have a deal with OC Transpo or else 30 thousand drunks like myself are going to have a tough time getting home.
Taylor Swift is a joke and about as country as Justin Bieber. Brad Paisley is awesome, but he's here at SBP every 6 months anyways. The rest of the line-up is decent but a huge step back from last year. The website says one more major name "TBA" ... they better pony up and it better be someone like Zac Brown Band, Jason Aldean, George Strait... someone good basically. End Rant
Capital Hoedown 2012 Lineup a major disappointment!
This is a terrible lineup they have this year. I don't know what the promoters were thinking. Such a disappointment from last year's lineup. I heard they overspent last year and lost a ton of money so they could only go with one super act this year and I guess that will be Taylor Swift. I guess it's good news for those fourteen and under, but so much for the party. I think I was hoping the other days would have some strong acts, but not much interest there... one of the Brooks and Dunn guys, and Terri Clark???? Reba is ok and should draw the older people out. Brad Paisley is great, but he was just here a few months ago so that will probably bomb. I was expecting great acts like Lady A or Zac Brown. Ah well, there's always next year.
Lady A is too cross over these days. Good music but not country. Taylor Swifts songs about fairy tales are a laughing stock. As for the guy yapping country, you WILL NOT find a single venue this summer with more better looking woman packed in one place in this city.
Except that they'll all soon be dead in pickup truck accidents.
