Country group Borderline Country has earned a reputation as an outstanding live band — one that centers itself firmly in drinkin’ tunes, Texas red dirt and traditional country more than the sounds of modern Nashville.
The guys originally came together in December of 2009, when local singer/guitarist Casey Brett teamed up with twin brothers Bruce and Seth Hall (guitar/vocals) to open for James Otto at the Buffalo Bar. In the next year, Borderline added singer/guitarist Aaron Blumer and drummer Jesse Boley to the mix. Borderline has played some killer shows since that opening gig for Otto.
The group has toured the Midwest, traveled to Nashville and Alaska and has opened for several other notable country acts like Jerrod Niemann, Lee Brice, Jeremy McComb, Bucky Covington, Ricochet, Ty Herndon, Shooting Star and Trailer Choir.
In the last year, the quintet has developed a big following and an even bigger sound. Few country bands from Northwest Missouri can boast four-part harmonies. And we’re guessing that none of them can sound as rich, sweet and superlative as Borderline.
