"Luke Bryan is on an absolute tear right now with the second-highest album sales of 2013 in any genre behind Justin Timberlake, and being our fans' most-desired-artist-to-see in our exit polls. It's a huge honor to have him want to be a part of Boots and Hearts this summer," Shannon McNevan, executive director of Republic Live, said in a statement Wednesday. "As reigning ACM Entertainer of the Year, we know his live performance is going to be one country fans are not going to want to miss. It's going to be another amazing party this summer with Blake Shelton and Luke Bryan locked in for 2014, and a boatload of great artists still to come."
The festival is scheduled for July 31-Aug. 3 at the Canadian Tire Motorsport Park.
