Waterdown's Ty Baynton Wins Boots and Hearts Emerging Artist Showcase

Waterdown Country artist Ty Baynton received more than 50,000 votes to help him win the Boots and Hearts Emerging Artists Showcase.  Congratulations!

The talented local boy won a spot on the popular Boots and Hearts Music Festival in Bowmanville (opening for Hunter Hayes on the main stage).  On top of that, there's a week in Nashville and a single release from Big Machine Label Group.

The excited Ty wrote about it on his website:

The Boots & Hearts Emerging Artist Showcase voting has come to an end and we finished first. I received over 50,000 votes during the three week event and I can’t thank you enough for all the love, support, and dedication you have shown me. Special thanks goes out to the Waterdown Memories Facebook Page, The Burlington Fire Department, everyone at Waterdown District High School, and my cousin, Jonathan, for single handedly getting the majority of my West coast votes.

Congratulations to my fellow finalists, I can’t wait to meet with you all in person at Boots & Hearts later this year. Finally, thank you to everyone at Boots & Hearts and Sirius XM for this amazing opportunity.
