Back Country Roads:

Back Country Roads is a 6 piece band based out of the northern Illinois area. BCR started as a 3 piece acoustic band in April of 2009 and quickly expanded to the 6 piece we are today. We have played at events such as Country Thunder (the last 5 years) and have been direct support for National acts such as Phil Vassar, Darryl Worley, David Lee Murphy, Neal McCoy, Love & Theft, Steel Magnolia, Keith Anderson, Easton Corbin and Granger Smith. Back Country Roads plays mostly current Top 40 Country hits, with a few older selections and some originals thrown in the mix as well. We also occasionally leave the Country genre a little bit which gives the audience some variety. Our Facebook fan-base is over 9,400 fans and continues to grow. We are looking forward to expanding into new areas for another jam-packed fun filled year full of shows!

Gary Allan's Bio:

With the allure of a modern day outlaw, Gary Allan has won over fans, peers and critics with his signature blend of smoldering vocals, rebellious lyrics and raucous live performances.  While becoming a force on the country music scene, Allan has remained true to his artistic voice each step of the way.  Allan just re-signed with Universal Music Group Nashville, the label home for the entirety of his twenty-year career.  "Do You Wish It Was Me?", the debut single from his upcoing EMI Nashville release, is set to hit radio this June.  The single was co-written by Allan, Jonathan Singleton and Andrew Dorff and co-produced by Allan and Greg Droman.  His last album, SET YOU FREE, topped the Billboard 200 (Pop Chart), a career first for Allan.  The album also made its debut at the top of the Billboard Country Album chart (for the fourth time in a row), and produced his fifth #1 country radio chart topper with "Every Storm Runs Out Of Rain."  The California native released his first album, Used Heart for Sale, in 1996 and since then has released eight additional studio albums selling over 7 million albums, been certified platinum on three back-to-back albums, and been certified gold five times.  Allan has five #1 hits at country radio, fourteen Top 10 hits to his credit and amassed over 270 million total streams.  He's described as "dark and dreamy" in Entertainment Weekly, "soulful and rough around the edges" in Playboy and deemed a"maverick" by Rolling Stone.  He sells out venues as a headliner from NY to LA, appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Live with Kelly and Michael and Jimmy Kimmel Live.  He has also landed on the covers of Country Weekly, Pollstar and People magazine.
