This young man is what we like to call cowboy through and through! When he isn’t playing his guitar he’s roping steers on horse back and travelling around the province with rodeos. It all started with the accordion at a very young age for this cowboy, taught by his grandfather , he started winning talent contest against adults at local fairs. He started singing around age 9 along with playing the guitar and was taught by the one and only country music legend, Johnny Burke! Playing shows alongside him till the day he got his very first gig and it picked up from there! Ryan and Johnny were very close up until this past year when Johnny unfortunately passed away from a battle with cancer. Ryan has always looked up to him and will always try to make him proud throughout his career in music. Ryan was a nominee for Youth Artist of the Year, to playing all around the province . In 2016 Ryan was top 10 on CMT Magna playing alongside Beverly Mahood , Leah Daniels, Alan Doyle, and Paul Brandt that was broadcasted on TV. Ryan also has performed in Nashville, Tennessee playing at some of the big attractions down there like Tootsies, Legends Corner, Honky Tonk Central and the Stage. Ryan will also be playing in Las Vegas this December, and just recently had his first original song called “If She Made Me Stay”, written with the help of a close friend. And the Latest original “The One” and he’s very excited to be with us at the Orangeville-Headwaters RAM Rodeo

Ty Baynton -  2:00pm & 9:00pm
Ty Baynton may have grown up in the small town of Waterdown Ontario, but this ‘Canadian Country Boy’ has stadium sized vocals. He has always had an appreciation for music with influences including Randy Travis, Tom Petty, and Oasis. At age 14, in his third-generation family farmhouse, Ty picked up his grandfather's guitar and never looked back.Ty wrote his first song by age 15 and found his love of performing in local coffee shops and bars.

Ty is currently writing and recording new music with plans to release in mid 2018. The new songs showcase Ty’s strong vocals and songwriting abilities. With production by JUNO award nominee Nathan Ferarro and sound engineering by 2017 JUNO recording engineer winner Jason Dufour, these crowd pleasing tunes will turn some heads and get fans up on their feet.

Ty released his first self-titled EP in 2012 and saw the lead-off single Out Here On The Farm achieve nationwide air play in Canada, and the southern USA. This album garnered him a nomination for Best Country Artist at the Toronto Independent Music Awards. Ty followed this up with his signature song, Canadian Country Boy, which launched him on a series of cross-Canada tours and back into the recording studio for a full length album - Good Ol’ Boy.


Ty has had the pleasure of hitting up major festivals including Boots & Hearts, Manitoulin Country Fest, several RAM Rodeos and countless small fairs across the country. Direct supporting act for Gord Bamford, Chad Brownlee, Hunter Hayes, High Valley, Tim Hicks, and Blake Shelton to name a few. With a killer voice, infectious smile, and boyish charm, Ty is definitely a breakout artist worth paying attention to. For more information visit his website: www.tybaynton.com
