Jul 4 2018, 6:23 am

The Chevrolet Boots and Hearts 2018 Emerging Artist showcase is back this year and three emerging Canadian artists need your help to catapult them to stardom.

You already know that Canada is home to a countless number of all-star country musicians from Shania Twain to Bobby Wills, Emma Wright, Dallas Smith, Brett Young, and even two previous Emerging Artist Showcase winners: Tim Hicks and James Barker Band.

This year, Amanda Jordan, Kris Barclay, and Krystan Bellows, are looking for their big break. These three emerging musicians are all competing as a Chevrolet Wildcard Finalist in hopes of securing the eighth and final spot in the showcase. The winner of the showcase will receive a grand prize on behalf of Chevrolet that will enable them to turn their musical passion into profession.

From now until July 13, you have the chance to vote for your favourite Chevrolet Wildcard Finalist by visiting The musician who collects the most votes will move on in the competition with seven other Canadian hopefuls. These eight finalists will be performing at the Boots and Hearts festival where the winner will be chosen on the last day and become the opening set for Brett Young.

But that’s not all! The winner will also win a trip to Nashville for a professional songwriting session, photoshoot, and the chance to create a single release with Warner Music Canada. Be sure to check out each Chevrolet Wildcard Finalist video and help your fellow Canadian turn their dream into reality.

And don’t forget to share your favourite artist’s video using the #BootsandBeyond hashtag to get their music blowing up on social media!
