Good ole’ country music. From feel good honky tonk to keep-it-real storytelling tunes, fans can’t get enough! Country music lovers are always looking for new bands to follow, so make it easy for them to find you. Building a country band website is as easy as the boot scootin boogie. If you’re stuck on the sidelines though, we’ll show ya how.
Let’s look through some country band website templates to get familiarized with what a successful country website looks like.
Your website homepage is a visitor's first look at your band, so you gotta put your best boot forward here. Your country band website design should include a large professional header image, a call-to-action (CTA), and enough information to get them to explore your site further.
If you’re wondering what a call-to-action is, it’s the one action you want your fans to take when they arrive to your site.
For example, sign up to my mailing list, watch this video, or buy my latest album. You may immediately go for the buy my album CTA, but it’s more valuable to get your fans to sign up to your mailing list. This allows you to stay in touch over the long haul.
Award-winning show band, Madison County, has a CTA as well as award-winning accomplishments at the top of the page.
This gets fans excited to learn more about them and their music. Any band with this many awards must be awesome!
Your fans want to know the faces behind the music, so having a great biography page is a must. Take the time to write out a detailed band bio written in 3rd person. Highlight how you got started, your accomplishments, and upcoming projects.
It’s also a great idea to add a bio for each member of the band as well. Nashville country band, Adairs Run, takes it a step further by including video bios of each band member. This is an awesome idea as it allows your fans to see the more personal side of you and your band.
Sell Music and Merch
Your music page is where you get to shine. Here you can stream your full tracks or a snippet of them. You get to set the preview time per track with our built in music feature.
Texas country band, Saints Eleven, gives us the perfect example of an effective music page. They have all their albums for sale on the same page making it easy for fans to buy from them.
They also have it set up to sell the physical CD and vinyl of the album as well. Fans love the variety and this increases the likelihood of making sales from the Music page.
If you have other merch you’d like to sell you can do that with our Store feature as well. Check out the merch page for Illinois country band Six String Crossing. Selling t-shirts and hats is a smart idea. When your fans wear these items they’re doing some promoting for you!
Fans want to see you live so make it easy for them to find you. Have a dedicated Events page listing all your upcoming shows (and even past events.)
The Bogart Jones Band does this right by adding images and a solid gig description next to each show. They’ve also added live performance shots to the page that gives fans an idea of what they’ll see at the show.
With the amount of information flying around the internet it’s hard to get noticed. Adding a news or blog page is a good way to stay in the spotlight. Grammy nominated band, The Electric Cowboys, use a News page for big announcements.
Another great option is to add a blog page. Then add frequent updates about new music, upcoming tours, and the day-to-day shenanigans of a country star. The best tip we can give is to stay consistent. Make sure fans know what you’re up to so you’ll stay in their mind's eye.
An often overlooked page is the EPK, or Electronic Press Kit page. This page gives media and industry pros a place to discover everything about your band on one page.
Country trio, Steel Union, shows us a EPK layout with a few videos, press release and tour dates. A few other things to add to an EPK page would be hi-res images for download, song samples and a contact form.
The final page on any website is the Contact page. This is where fans, venues and industry folks can get in touch with you.
Better Than Nothin band does just that with a custom form feature and a few social media icons. Make sure that once a fan leaves your site they can find you around the interwebs.
So there ya have it, a whole bunch of examples to show you how to build a great country band website. If you want to see even more, our blog has many beautiful band website templates. You can also check out other website genres on our examples page as well.
