A summer calendar fixture for over 100 years, the Teepee Creek Stampede attracts more than 20,000 fans through its gates each year with its winning mix of pro-rodeo, chuckwagon races and—of course—top notch musicians. And this year is no different. Taking place from July 12 to 15, there are some fabulous headliners on the bill. Here are a few that we’re really excited about…
The Road Hammers, Thursday July 12
When it comes to successful country bands, there are successful country bands… and then there are The Road Hammers: the highest selling Canadian country band in history. Known for their synergistic blend of classic rock meets country, they are sure to rock the stampede when they take centre stage on the Thursday evening.
Dean Brody, Friday July 13
Hailing from Jaffray, BC, Dean Brody has 16 Canadian Country Music Awards and two Junos. He most recently won the Fan’s Choice Award, Songwriter of the Year award and the award from Top-Selling Single at the 2017 CCMA Awards. The ability to tell stories with genuine feeling and authenticity flows through his music.
Deric Ruttan, Saturday July 14
The Nashville-based, Bracebridge, Ontario-born singer/songwriter Deric Ruttan has had some serious stars record his tunes. The lead single from Blake Shelton’s current record, If I’m Honest, Came Here To Forget (co-written with Craig Wiseman), hit #1 on the US Billboard/Mediabase Country Airplay Chart last year. As a recording artist in his own right, he has had 11 Top 10 singles on the BDS/Mediabase country charts in Canada. Take The Week Off’s title track was the #1 Most Added Song in Canada during it’s first week of release in 2013.
Just a 30-minute drive from the Teepee Creek Stampede, the Stanford Hotel Grande Prairie is a great place to lay your head after a day of traditional stamped fun. With its complimentary airport shuttle service, stylish restaurant and lounge and Jacuzzi suites, it’s the perfect accommodation option for a stamped getaway.
