This afternoon (October 8), Flatland Cavalry posted on their socials that they will be making their Grand Ole Opry debut.

We are thrilled to be making our Debut at the Grand Ole Opry on 10/22. We are excited to be a part of the show that made country music famous, we hope that y’all will join us on this historic night.

Their debut is set for October 22nd, and is a well deserved honor for the hard-working and beloved West Texas based band. A product of the thriving Lubbock music scene, Cleto Cordero and the boys have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with over the past half-decade.

The depth of their debut album Humble Folks caught most by surprise when it was released in 2016. The follow-up, Homeland Insecurity, out in 2019 cemented the Lubbock-based band's spot in Texas, and their latest, Welcome to Country Land, has been well received by critics and fans alike.

In addition to his band's own projects, Cleto and the guys have collaborated with Bruce Robison on his The Next Waltz projects many a time, and of course the Flatland Cavalry front man makes up 1/4 of the Texas super-group The Panhandlers; comprised of Cordero, Josh Abbott, William Clark Green, and John Baumann.
