Joe Wilson from Winkler, Manitoba opened the show. Wilson played some classic country covers and some originals including, “Send me back to Winkler, Manitoba”.
A group from Southern Ontario, Johnson's Creek played next. Bringing some rock country into the mix they also played their brand-new single “Burn it Up”
