Start.ca Rocks the Park has announced its Saturday night of the 2020 festival. On Saturday, July 18th, 2020, Start.ca Rocks the Park has teamed up with Pure Country 93 to bring country to Harris Park, yet again! July 18th will feature returning fan favourite Dallas Smith, who will co-headline alongside Billy Currington. Additionally, bringing country back to its roots, we’ll have the iconic Travis Tritt and the support of up and coming artist Blanco Brown.
“Country. On a Saturday. Need I say more? In the past we’ve always programmed country on our Wednesday or Thursday nights due to what was available to us. This year, we saw the opportunity and went with it, and we’re excited! Dallas has been a fan favourite since day one, so how could we not bring him back and give him the closing spot? Round that out with Billy Currington, and old-school favourite of mine Travis Tritt, and the hotter than ever Blanco Brown, we’re set for one heck of a party on Saturday night. Our Flashback Friday will be announced in a few weeks, so stay tuned London!”

Dallas Smith – With the release of his eagerly-awaited EP The Fall, Canadian country star Dallas Smith finds himself in a pretty enviable position. Even before officially seeing the light of day, the collection had catapulted Smith to unprecedented plateaus in Canadian country music. Its first two singles, “Make ‘Em Like You” and “Rhinestone World,” were Smith’s fifth and sixth consecutive No. 1s and seventh in total – both records for Canadian country artists in the SoundScan era. Add to that his many major award wins, gold and platinum certifications, and you’ve got one of the most impressive resumes in Canadian music. More important than the achievements and accolades, though – and largely responsible for them – is the fact that, at this point in his career, Smith feels beholden to nobody but himself.

Billy Currington – Billy Currington’s latest album bears the breezy title Summer Forever, but the talented Georgia native has spent more than a decade in the spotlight proving he’s truly a man for all seasons. Possessing one of the smoothest and most distinct voices in any genre of music, Currington is equally skilled at delivering upbeat summertime anthems as well as exploring the complexities of life and love with a poignant ballad. On Summer Forever, Currington’s sixth studio album, he brings both with a collection of songs that will take the listener on a riveting musical journey and leavethem breathless at the end of the ride.

Travis Tritt – Nearly 30 years after Travis Tritt launched his music career, the Southern rock-influenced artist continues to sell-out shows and stay true and relevant to country music fans across the globe. Continuously performing shows and withholding a heavy appearance schedule, Tritt is proving to be unstoppable. Continue reading….click here
Blanco Brown – Blurring the lines between Country and hip-hop music, Blanco Brown makes a southern sound that he proudly calls "trailer trap." It's a boundary-breaking, multicolored genre of his very own — which draws upon the rawness and storytelling abilities of his two biggest musical influences, Johnny Cash and Outkast. His debut EP, Blanco Brown, showcases the full range of its creator, who juggles multiple roles as the project's songwriter, producer, vocalist, visionary, and multi-instrumentalist.
