Flatland Cavalry
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 badlands 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.

Formed in the fall of 2012, the quintet was rounded up by Cordero after stretches of acoustic outings around the Panhandle town of Lubbock. With guitarist Reid Dillon, fiddler Laura Jane, bassist Jonathan Saenz, and drummer Jason Albers joining Cordero, Flatland quickly garnered the attention of the masses with the release of the debut EP, Come May, in the spring of 2015. Building off the success of Come May, Cordero and company released their full-length follow-up, Humble Folks, in April 2016.

Hailed as a "Texas Troubadour on the Rise," John Baumann released his fourth studio album PROVING GROUNDS to an eager fanbase in June 2017. The project includes the buzz-worthy track "Old Stone Church" in which Baumann digs deep into his experience of losing his father to cancer, rightfully earning its spot onto Saving Country Music's "Best Songs of 2017" list. Lonestar Magazine raves, “Too soon for accolades? Nah. More like right on time. And so long as he keeps gunning for the horizon... there oughta be a lot more of ’em coming down the line" Fans can catch Baumann on the road this fall throughout Texas.
