Back Country Roads is one of the Midwest’s hottest country bands, playing mostly new country, a few older classics, and even a few songs from other genres made to fit their unique sound. Back Country Roads, aka “BCR” was created in 2009, when Mary Noren and Kyle Miller began singing Karaokee together. They soon added mutual friend Brian Miller on guitar. They played for a while as an acoustic 3-piece band for local bars. After receiving great feedback on their sound, they decided that the band should expand in numbers. They then added Dave Miller on bass guitar, Jarred Klotz on drums, Dan Alfrey on keys and Hanna Mathey on fiddle and most recently John Von Arx on guitar. BCR never fails to give the audience a unique and entertaining show. Their vocal blend and musicianship is what sets them apart from the rest. BCR has opened for acts such as Danny Gokey, Phil Vassar, Darryl Worley and David Lee Murphy. They have also played at Country Thunder Wisconsin in 2010 and 2011. BCR hopes to continue their success in expanding to other areas of Illinois and even other states. They are hitting the recording studio during their time off to record their first cd.
