Lubbock Band Flatland Cavalry Makes Grand Ole Opry Debut
Sometimes in life there are those moments where you realize one of your dreams is finally happening. For a lot of bands, one of those moments is hitting the stage at Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, Tennessee.
This moment finally happened for one Lubbock band and we could not be more proud of them.
Country and Americana band Flatland Cavalry can now say they have taken the Opry Stage and checked the box for one of their dreams to become reality.
As the announcer welcomes the band and introduces them for the first time for their big entrance, they even said from the great music city of Lubbock, Texas.
In the video below you can kind of see a little glimpse of how it went and the big smiles on the faces of Flatland Cavalry's members. The band said it all started a couple of months ago when they gave them an impromptu tour and they asked them if they would ever want to play here and that day finally has come.
Flatland Cavalry was formed in 2012 by Cleto Cordero and Jason Albers, who were college roommates in Midland and performed together before moving to Lubbock. The rest of the band's members came together by 2014. Their first EP came out a year later in 2015 called Come May. In 2016, their first full album Humble Folks was released.
Three years later the band released their second album, Homeland Insecurity. Their newest album, Welcome to Countryland, was released in 2021.
You can find out more about the band on their official website.
Flatland Calvary, we're so proud of you. Keep doing your thing, Lubbock always has your back!
