Back Country Roads is a 6 piece band based out of DeKalb, IL. Check out Back Country Roads CD on iTunes, Spotify, CD Baby, and backcountryroadsband.comBCR started as a 3 piece acoustic band in April of 2009, then quickly expanded to the 6 piece we are today. We have played at events such as Country Thunder and have opened for Phil Vassar, Darryl Worley, David Lee Murphy, Neal McCoy, Steel Magnolia, Keith Anderson, Grainger Smith, Parmalee, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Cassadee Pope, Jerrod Niemann, Craig Campbell, and Easton Corbin. We play mostly current Top 40 Country hits, with a few older selections thrown in the mix as well. We also occasionally leave the Country genre a little bit which gives the audience some variety.
