Canadian fans get preview of Merritt Rockin’ River Fest star performer Aaron Goodvin

March 16, 2016

Western Canada: One of Merritt Rockin’ River Festival’s featured performers, Warner Music Canada recording artist Aaron Goodvin, is opening for internationally acclaimed and multi-platinum singer, songwriter Johnny Reid for his tour going on now across Canada. Goodvin, who was selected to be one of Reid’s opening acts for his What Love is All About Tour, will be a featured artist at this year’s Merritt Rockin’ River Festival happening July 28 – 31 in British Columbia.

“Goodvin is one Canada’s up and coming young superstars and we are thrilled that he will have an opportunity to showcase his talents to Edmonton fans this week beside Johnny Reid, who really is a legend in the making,” said Leah Primeau, Merritt Rockin’ River Festivals Sponsorship Manager. “This is a great opportunity for Edmonton area fans to get a preview of the amazing talent that will be coming to Merritt.”

Critically acclaimed Reid was highly impressed with Goodvin’s energetic performances and portfolio of songs. The two artists met when the singer best known for hits like Darlin’ was working with a recording engineer in Nashville who insisted Reid needed to see what Goodvin could do. One short sampling of Goodvin’s abilities was all Reid needed and shortly thereafter, the two were on the road together.

Reid’s Alberta tour is happening now until March 5 and tickets are still available. Goodvin and Reid will be on stage tonight and tomorrow at the Northern Alberta Jubillee Auditorium in Edmonton. On March 5 they will be performing at the Enmax Centrium in Red Deer. Check out for tickets.

Joining Goodvin on stage July 30 in Merritt will be none other than CMT Artist of the Year winner Sam Hunt, Small Town Pistols, High Valley and many other country favorites.

Taking place July 28 – 31 in beautiful Merritt, British Columbia, the Merritt Rockin’ River Fest promises four days of the best in country music with three outdoor stages and more than 20 artists performing throughout the event. Children 12 and under are free.
