Road Hammers Ready to Rock Boot Hill This Weekend at Only Ontario Tour Stop

Road HammersAfter a long COVID halt, The Road Hammers are back at it once again. The infamous country rock band known for its fun blend of hard rock and country return to the Boot Hill Country Jamboree in Bothwell for their only Ontario stop this summer. The festival runs from tonight (Thursday, July 29) to Sunday, July 31, and also features headliners Jess Moskaluke and Bobby Wills, among other acts all weekend.

The Road Hammers are this year’s highly anticipated Saturday night headliner, and according to lead vocalist and frontman Jason McCoy, the band will kick the whole thing off with their post-COVID anthem song The Boys Are Back At It from their latest EP Back At It.

“The song The Boys Are Back At It is really a message that says everything we want to say right now,” Jason told 519 prior to the band’s show at the legendary Big Valley Jamboree in Camrose, Alberta. “It’s about getting out of the pandemic. I mean, we really are back at it. In fact, we were going to kick the show off at Boot Hill with it and it just feels like the world needs to hear this message that at this time.”

As the band closes in on nearly 20 years together, being back at it has given them a newfound joy connecting with audiences and a passion for creating new music. The band released Back At It last year, Jason recorded a star-studded single called We Are One with many of his musical friends in 2020, and the band’s guitarist has released a new rock album out this week with his group Clayton Bellamy and the Congregation called The Ugly Truth.

The latest EP features guest appearances from labelmate Tim Hicks and fellow Ontario country star Meghan Patrick.

“We’re still recording hammer music,” Jason described the busy schedule. “It’s almost like having horses in a race, you don’t know which ones are gonna pull ahead. When it does, that’s the one you ride, but you never lose track of the other horses either. We’re always going to be doing The Hammers, but if we do take a break, we’ll still be back. I don’t think will ever go away – we’re like the stones, we’re not gonna quit. You’re gonna have to get the oxygen out on-stage years from now, but we’ll be doing it.”

That energy and drive will come to life when The Road Hammers hit the stage at to the Boot Hill Country Jamboree in Bothwell this week. Day passes and full camping sites for the entire festival are still available at the gate or by visiting boothilljamboree.com/tickets for more information.
