    Come On In
From the country streets of Nashville arises Backroad Slang, a rock-fringed country band bent on making it BIG.
Formed by singer-songwriter Mike Thiel and drummer Scotty Kormos in early 2018, Backroad Slang came together by what seemed to be fate. After leaving their Midwest homes to follow their music dreams – which separately brought them all over the country – the two musicians were independently searching for a new music muse.
After landing in Nashville around the same time, the two were introduced by a mutual friend and started Backroad Slang just three days later.
Creating an unapologetic sound that blends hook heavy stadium rock edge with country charm, Backroad Slang is for those who still like a little whiskey in their Coke, a little Kahlua in their coffee. The two down-home musicians pride themselves on feeding the heart and soul of the working class with flashy choruses wrapped around country lyrics reflective of their unrefined upbringings.
Welcome to the new era of BIG COUNTRY.
Welcome to Backroad Slang.
