2018 Welcomes Back Road Story
Back Road Story is rapidly becoming one of the Midwest's favorite new country bands. The band consists of lead singer, Chelsey Seboldt, bassist/guitarist, Jacob Watson, guitarist, Chris Beasley, and drummer, Dakota Watson. With over 100 shows played around the Midwest in the last year, nine award nominations, sharing the stage with multiple nationally touring artists, and their debut single climbing the Music Row charts, the Springfield, Missouri based band has hit the ground running and shows no signs of slowing down in the music industry.
