Heartland Radio plays "The Best Country Music Across The Airwaves" or, for those of you that are unfamiliar with the genre, Heartland Radio plays "Country Music That Doesn't Suck."  Their live shows are a mix of fun, boot-scootin' dance songs for everyone that likes to boogie down and the best heartstring-tugging slow songs to share with your lover or significant other. Heartland Radio tells the relatable stories about fun, love, honesty, loss, and heartbreak that make country music the most popular genre in America.


The band was born in 2009 as an acoustic country duo featuring Dallas Corbin and Dustin Snyder playing in bars and clubs in Massachusetts and Rhode Island.  The lineup expanded in April of 2015 for a show following Miranda Lambert's performance in Worcester, MA.  Since then, Heartland Radio has performed at Country-themed bars, clubs, festivals, and events in the Northeast.

A Heartland Radio show is always a great night out with friends.  If you want to let loose and have some fun and leave with your heart full, please join us at the next show!  

Learn more about the band members and their stories below: 


     Guitarist extraordinaire Dallas Corbin hails from San Antonio, TX.  In 2008, he left the expanse of the Lone Star state in search of new experiences with no real destination in mind.   He made his way east, sharing his love for country music with anyone that would stop to listen along the way.  

     In a recent interview, Dallas reflected on how he came to settle in the Northeast.  "In Texas," he says, "singin' and strummin' guys like me are a-dime-a-dozen.  I'm like an apple or an orange down there.  But, up here in New England, I'm some kind of exotic fruit... like a mango, or a kiwi."  His love for country music is surpassed only by his love for friends and family.  He keeps up an aggressive acoustic performance routine in addition to shows with Heartland Radio, details about which you can find here in the TOUR section.

Rhode Island into marrying him, he settled down right here in New England. He fell in love with music watching the band America play a free concert in the park with his family when he just a kid.  He’s a family man and country boy. You might catch him on I-95 cranking Dierks Bentley or Miranda Lambert with the windows down.
