HEARTLAND is a 5-piece country/rock cover band local to Southeastern Connecticut and Southern New England. While our song list primarily features selections drawn from the past 50+ years of country music history (including both classic and contemporary favorites), we also feature select classic, southern and blues rock favorites. HEARTLAND features a mix of experienced, talented musicians with over 125 years of combined compositional, recording, and live performance experience. With driving acoustic and soaring lead guitars, a dynamic, driving rhythm section, and exceptionally blended harmonies, HEARTLAND deliver a high-energy performance that will entertain and engage audiences of all sizes and ages.

HEARTLAND was born out of the ashes of two great bands that came together to give high energy country music to the masses. Born right here locally, HEARTLAND returns to its country roots with music from the past, present & future.
