Whether You’re in the Mood for Original Songs or Familiar Tunes, Chicago’s Local Country Scene Has Got You Covered!

When it comes to enjoying country music in Chicago, fans have many options. Country cover bands, as well as original artists, abound throughout the city and suburbs and can be found performing at places ranging from the area’s largest festivals to small corner bars and everywhere in between.

Country cover bands, who play familiar tunes originally recorded by mainstream country artists, frequently entertain audiences with high-energy shows that get crowds dancing, tapping their toes, and singing along with their favorite nationally-recognized country tunes.

At the other end of the spectrum, original country artists and bands, who typically write and perform their own songs, captivate audiences with their pensive musings and allow fans to get up close and personal with artists who just may be the nation’s next big country singers and songwriters.

Added to the mix are various performers in the area who like to take the middle road, incorporating a creative blend of both country covers and original material into their live shows.

By visiting local country artists’ and bands’ websites, one can usually see whether they consider themselves to be primarily cover bands or original artists, and if contacted directly, local bands and artists are always happy to interact with fans, answer questions about the types of songs they perform live, and even tailor their shows to align with their fans’ preferences.

Amidst all the options and the plentiful local country talent flourishing in Chicagoland, one thing is for sure: whether you’re in the mood to hear covers or originals, whichever way you choose, there is no way to lose!
