Complete Country is Canada’s voice for country music coverage from coast to coast. More than just a news outlet, they keep fans up to date by offering in-depth looks at popular stars through constant engagement and unique audio/video content production. Recently the Toronto East location of The Backyard Axe Throwing League had the pleasure of hosting Canadian country music star Meghan Patrick, with Complete Country in tow. We had her out to throw a few axes while she was filming a video promoting her new album, Country Music Made Me Do It, before going off on a summer tour in support of the album. Plaid shirts and axe throwing go together like cookies and milk, so it’s no surprise that BATL venues across North America have played hosed too many country music stars donned in plaid. With the guidance of our skilled staff members (axe gurus, as we like to call them) Meghan was sticking bullseyes in no time. If you’re a Meghan Patrick fan, luckily for you Complete Country caught the whole thing on film – and you can check out the entire interview here.
Celebrity Visits at the Backyard Axe Throwing League
When you do something for 12 years, you’re bound to get noticed. The Backyard Axe Throwing League has been host to countless celebrities over the years – both for recreational fun and for filming. Athletes such as NBA star Rick Fox, NHL players Mike Cammalleri and George Parros, George Armstrong, and Darren Pang; actors and actresses such as Ruby Rose, Vin Diesel, Gerrard Butler, Rick Mercer, and Alex Høgh Andersen; and musical acts such as Amon Amarth, The Washboard Union, Terri Clark, and the list goes on. It’s easy to see the appeal of throwing cold steel into the wood, for celebrities and non-celebrities alike.
Luckily, making a trip to BATL doesn’t require being a celebrity. We pioneered the urban axe throwing back in 2006 – and have been known as the foremost authority on the sport and the best at what we do ever since. The Backyard Axe Throwing League has 14 locations across North America (in Toronto, Ottawa, Kitchener, London, Niagara Falls, Hamilton, Calgary, Squamish, Chicago, Nashville, and Detroit) with more locations set to open later this year, so finding a venue to sharpen your skills has never been easier.
