Coors Banquet One Horse Town Announces Lineup for Third Annual Event!

Posted on the 20 April 2017 by Hendrik Pape @soundcheckblg

For the third year in a row, Coors Banquet is looking to name Canada's top One Horse Town and award them with a legendary country music concert. Last year's winner, Truro, Nova Scotia , was treated to the biggest concert the town has ever seen, featuring Dean Brody, Chad Brownlee, and the River Town Saints. The 2017 contest, which officially opened April 17, boasts the biggest country music acts in its three year history: multi-platinum Grammy winning superstar Darius Rucker will be headlining the concert joined by 2017 ACM New Male Vocalist Award winner Jon Pardi, three-time reigning CCMA Female Artist Of The Year and 2017 JUNO Award winner Jess Moskaluke and hot newcomers James Barker Band.

"At Coors Banquet, we're fans of country music. We've always been proud to hail from Golden, Colorado, a small town of 20,000 people and because of this, we continue to celebrate small towns and the people who live in them," says Wenchelle Lao, Marketing Manager, Coors Banquet. "Every year, we see great responses from towns all across Canada, showing their small town pride. With superstar headliners and small towns coming together, it doesn't get much better than this."

Canadians from across the country are encouraged to nominate their town by showcasing their town pride with Coors Banquet via a photo on social media or by entering at CoorsBanquet.ca/oht. All nominated towns will be considered and the top six will be selected as finalists. Canadians will then be invited to vote for their favourite small town finalist, with the results determining who will host the big time concert. For a third year, Coors Banquet will be partnering with CMT (Canada) to capture exclusive footage and produce an original concert special set to air in late 2017. Additionally, the contest will be promoted across Corus Entertainment's television networks, Global and CMT (Canada).

"I'm honoured and truly excited to be able to share the stage with Darius Rucker, Jon Pardi, and James Barker Band," says Jess Moskaluke, JUNO Award winning Canadian country artist from Langenburg, Saskatchewan, a town of 1,048 people. "I'm from a small town and love the message behind the contest, embracing where you're from and your community."

"We can't wait to tear the stage up with Darius Rucker, Jon Pardi and Jess Moskaluke for One Horse Town!" echoes James Barker Band from small town Woodville, Ontario. "A huge thank you to Coors Banquet and CMT (Canada) for including us in this amazing opportunity!"

Will your town be the next One Horse Town?
