Blame My Roots Fest is set to return to the hills of Belmont County for its third event next summer.
Platinum recording artist Dierks Bentley will take the stage at Valley View Farm on July 16. Bentley, an American country music singer-songwriter, has released hits like “What Was I Thinkin’,” “Drunk on a Plane,” “Somewhere on a Beach,” and “Sideways". His studio albums have accounted for 25 singles on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts, 17 of them reaching number one. His hits have also earned him several Country Music Association (CMA) and Academy of Country Music (ACM) awards.
Joining Bentley are Chase Rice, Ashley McBryde, singer-songwriter Randy Houser, and Niko Moon. James Barker Band and Priscilla Block round out the roster as it currently stands.
The festival saw staggering growth from its inaugural festival to its 2021 installment. After a 2020 COVID cancellation, the festival more than quadrupled its weekend attendance, welcoming some 12,000 guests to the farm in just its second year. The success of off-season presale promotions coupled with sold-out loyalty transactions by previous purchasers alludes to an even larger crowd in 2022.
Tickets for Blame My Roots Fest 2022 are available at www.blamefest.com.
