Flatland Cavalry

visit the site

At some point between Lubbock and Midland, the land shifts from endless cotton rows and rich farmland into pump jacks and mesquite tree filled pastures. Lubbock roots - country outfit Flatland Cavalry straddles that line between the Panhandle and the badland s of West Texas with their bright, earthy country ballads and gritty folk ramblers. Vocalist and chief songwriter Cleto Cordero’s honest, smooth songwriting revolves around the vernacular world of West Texas that he’s constructed with dusty, sun - soaked character sketches, brooding self - evaluations, and candid love songs that all have the ability to turn into singalong anthems.
