The Bootheel Bluegrass Festival began in 2005 with The Punches Family hosting at the Bavarian Halle in Fruitland. 

The Punches Family decided to go on the road full time with their music and contacted Bull and Tammy Harman in January of 2011 to see if they would be willing to take it over for them. The Drury Inn and Bavarian Halle wanted to keep the festival event as well.
