Borderline Country isn’t an extensive playlist of unexpected rock bands with country songs. It is a little bit country and a little bit rock n’ roll, and it’s a hell of a lot of fun! So, grab your partner and get ready for some knee-slapping tunes to do-si-do!

About the Curators
I’ve set-off around the world a few times as a digital nomad. My favorite places are off-the-beaten-path spaces. I enjoy good food, although I’m a sucker for trying anything once. Discovering new music and artists is a passion, but I adore retro tracks and nostalgic songs. Whether fueled by imagination, or anchored in the real world, I live for adventure, especially when set to the beat of diverse and eclectic playlists.
Ready. Set. Join me on a sonic adventure!
