TYLER FARR HEADLINES THIS YEAR’S TWEED STAMPEDE


The Tweed Stampede and Jamboree is pleased to announce this year’s head liner - Tyler Farr. Tyler will take to the stage on Saturday Evening.

“One of the best male vocalists in Country music today,” (Taste of Country), Tyler Farr is the first artist signed to Jason Aldean's Night Train Records/BBR Music Group. The Country-rocker, with three No.1 songs to his credit (“Redneck Crazy,” “Whiskey in My Water,” and “A Guy Walks Into a Bar”) broke onto the scene with the 2013 release of his debut album, Redneck Crazy, which landed at No. 2 on the Billboard Country Albums Chart and #5 on the Billboard Top 200. Farr's platinum-selling title-track “Redneck Crazy” projected Farr forward to celebrate back-to-back No. 1 singles, including his first No. 1 as a songwriter, with his Platinum-certified hit “Whiskey in my Water.” His sophomore album, Suffer In Peace followed suit, also making its debut in the Top 5 on both the BILLBOARD Top 200 Albums and BILLBOARD Country Albums Charts, leading Farr to become the only solo male Country artist in the past decade to have their first two studio albums debut in the Top 5 on the Billboard 200 Chart. 



Recognized as a 2014 CRS New Faces of Country Radio and 2014 Music Row “Breakthrough Artist of the Year” nominee, the opera-trained singer quickly earned coveted slots touring with Jason Aldean, Florida Georgia Line, Brantley Gilbert, Luke Combs and Lee Brice. The Missouri native's dry wit, silly antics and reputation as “a no-frills musician who pours his drinks as hard as he pours his heart into his songs,” (Rolling Stone), lead to Farr to receiving his own reality series A Little Too Farr (Unscripted) and a social following eager to see his next move. Farr is currently working on new music with longtime friend, Jason Aldean serving as a producer for the forthcoming project.

STEVEN LEE OLSEN ON SATURDAY NIGHT


Since moving to Nashville in 2004, Canadian country artist Steven Lee Olsen has worked tirelessly honing his craft as both a singer and a songwriter, and all the hard work has paid off in some pretty impressive ways. He co-wrote Keith Urban’s double-platinum hit “Blue Ain’t Your Color” – which in 2017 was named the NSAI Song of the Year and crowned “Single of the Year” at the CMA Awards. The song was also nominated for “Best Country Song” and “Best Country Solo Performance” at the 59th Grammy Awards, and “Song of the Year” at the ACM Awards. Olsen also penned Kip Moore’s #1 hit “More Girls Like You” and co-wrote Dallas Smith’s #1 hit “Drop,” as well as numerous cuts for other stars including Garth Brooks, Billy Currington, Rascal Flatts, The Judds, Emerson Drive and more.

 “It’s crazy to think all about the success I’ve had in the past few years; I never would have believed it,” says Olsen. “As an artist, it’s easy to get impatient, but I’ve learned that things usually work out exactly the way they’re supposed to, exactly when they’re supposed to. Timing really is everything.” This mantra led Olsen to title his 2018 EP “Timing is Everything,” which he independently released via his own music imprint SLO Circus Records.

Olsen’s latest single “Hello Country” was recently released to Canadian country radio where it was the most added song in its debut week and continues to climb the charts. His recent releases have garnered the attention of Pandora who named him one of their 2019 “Artists to Watch.” With new music to share with the fans, Olsen just wrapped a series of western Canadian dates in support of country music superstars Rascal Flatts on their 2019 Forever Summer Playlist Tour.

JOJO MASON PLAYS THE STAMPEDE ON FRIDAY


Jojo Mason will be hitting the stge at this year's 2020 Tweed Stampede.For 604 Record’s JoJo Mason, the past three years have been an incredible journey. Now, with 5 Top 10 tracks under his belt, the west coast artist is ready to hit the ground running once again, and he’s more than excited to see what’s on the horizon. Mason’s aptly titled first single, “Future”, from his forthcoming sophomore EP appropriately titled Chapter Two (September 13, 2019), was released in October and has surpassed 3.3 million streams, it quickly became his highest streamed song to date. It’s a song that peaked Mason’s interest immediately, and one that blended his two favourite musical styles; country, and a little bit of soul. Written by Nashville singer/songwriter Mitchell Tenpenny, “Future” paints a vivid picture of what can happen when one certain moment changes your life in ways no one could ever imagine. For JoJo, the track is nothing short of a game changer. His current single “Better On You”, another Tenpenny penned track released May 24th, highlights Mason’s sensitive side and got off to a strong start surpassing 50k streams in under a week, with over 1.8 million streams to date and placing third on the Canadian Country Radio & Billboard charts.

THE HAPPY PROJECT





The Happy Project, is in memory of our beloved horse and long time member of the Stampede family. "Happy" was in her thirties when she passed away this spring. For 8 years she was the centre of attention in the petting zoo. She was great with kids and loved the attention that she would get at the Stampede. Over the years thousands of families have seen/pat her mane and had their picture taken with her. The joy that she brought to everyone has inspired us to come up with this initiative, called The Happy Project! 
This Project is designed to give families the opportunity to attend the Tweed Stampede, that normally wouldn't be able to attend such an event. Thanks to our generous sponsors such as Bank of Montreal Tweed Branch we are able to send 10 deserving families to a day at the Tweed Stampede. We are still looking for more sponsors to send more families to the Stampede. If interested in becoming a sponsor please give us a call to join The Happy Project
To nominate a family please send us a direct message through Facebook or an email to info@initiativegroup.ca. You can nominate a family by telling us a brief story about the family and why they deserve a great day at the Stampede together. There is no specific reason why a family needs to be nominated. It doesn't need to be for financial or circumstantial reasons. It could be for good deeds done or a hard working family that doesn't get enough time to spend together!
Children are our future, and the skills learned and relationships fostered  throughout the day at the Stampede are often life-changing stepping stones on the road to adulthood. Children come from all walks of life, eager to watch and learn the ways of the western cowboy. They are ready to take on new challenges of the kids zone and discover unique gifts from the vendors village!

The Tweed Stampede believes the benefits of the Stampede experience are priceless, but we also realize that parents' pockets aren't bottomless and family time maybe hard to come by with a busy schedule. TS & J also believes that every child and every family,  should have an unique family experience at least once a summer. We hope to see you at the Stampede making family memories that will last a life time!
Giddy Up!

In Memory of "Happy" May 24th 2018
