Formed in Kirksville, MO in March of 2011, The Busted String Band is a self described “Regressive Country & Western” band and is pleased to be as far from sellouts as possible, as they make tens of dollars a year playing their brand of Modern Traditional Country Music

The band has shared stages with & opened for a variety of acts, some you’ve heard of and some you haven't. Those acts include artists like Iron & Wine, Jason Boland & The Stragglers, Kevin Fowler, The Whiskey Gentry, The Defibulators, Brandon Jenkins, fellow Missourians The John D. Hale Band, and many others.
