We recently posted a lot of coverage of Atlanta’s Shaky Knees Festival, but I wasn’t able to attend Shaky Boots Festival. The new country fest, which was held in Kennesaw, was held the weekend immediately after Shaky Knees
Shaky Boots featured some big names in country — including Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry, and Dwight Yoakam — and some acts that might fit more comfortably in the worlds of alt-country, Americana, bluegrass, or some other style, like Jason Isbell, Amanda Shires, Cracker, and Jim White Vs. The Packway Handle Band.
Shaky Knees 2015 represented an ambitious step forward for the festival in only its 3rd year, and I love that the organizers have stretched to create Shaky Boots too. I sure hope that circumstances allow hissing lawns to cover both festivals firsthand next year.
