Blame My Roots Fest unveils 2022 lineup

ST. CLAIRSVILLE – Blame My Roots Fest has announced the latest additions to its 2022 lineup.

A host of national and local acts, headed up by million-selling singer-songwriter David Lee Murphy, will join the ranks of Dierks Bentley, Chase Rice, Ashley McBryde, Randy Houser, Niko Moon and company at Valley View Farm this summer.

Murphy is best known for his No. 1 songs “Dust on the Bottle” and “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright,” as well country music favorites “Party Crowd,” “Every Time I Get Around You,” “The Road You Leave Behind” and “Loco.” Murphy has also co-written several singles for artists such as Kenny Chesney, Jason Aldean and Jake Owen.

Joining Murphy from the Nashville scene are Walker Montgomery and Levi Hummon. Montgomery, from the legendary Montgomery family, is a two-time BMRF alum and crowd favorite. Hummon’s latest hit, “Paying For It,” was co-written and performed with Walker Hayes and has gained success on Tik Tok and Instagram.

Festival co-creators Chris and Nina Dutton said this is the biggest, most complete and entertaining lineup yet for the young event.

“We have to keep outdoing ourselves in order to build,” Nina said. “We’ve been proud of each lineup, but this year is really exciting.”

Already announced and joining Bentley are reality TV personality turned country music powerhouse Chase Rice; 2018 ACM New Female Vocalist of the Year Ashley McBryde; chart-topping singer-songwriter Randy Houser; and rising star and BMRF ’21 alum Niko Moon, handling the Thursday night kickoff show. James Barker Band, an “up-and-coming country group worth knowing” according to The Boot Blog, and social media sensation Priscilla Block round out BMRF’s roster as it currently stands.

The Duttons are working on more additions to this year’s festival and will release details as they’re finalized. Single-day tickets are available now at blamefest.com.
