Backroad Anthem is a six man country rock band from Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Frontman for the band was Craig Strickland who was tragically found dead on January 4, 2016 with friend Chase Morland after they went missing in December 26, 2015.
Backroad Anthem has opened for artists such as Casey Donahew Band, Dustin Lynch, and Eli Young Band.
The band started as a group of acquaintances with a common love for music, but by the end of their first performance the band recalls that they knew they had caught lightening in a bottle.
Backroad Anthem members claimed that with the ability to play off each other, engaging a crowd came naturally and they quickly found the identity and sound they desired to express to fans.
“With these pieces in place, we’ll be able to build a fan base that will fall in love with our music,”Craig Strickland explained.
