Flatland Cavalry’s live performance videos for their Far Out West Sessions are superb.

Over the last several weeks, we’ve gotten videos for “Dancin’ Around a Fire” and “Daydreamer,” and this week, they released one for “It’s Good To Be Back (‘Round Here Again)”.

Produced by Fernando Garcia and filmed by Garcia and John Park, the purpose is to celebrate the band’s roots and explore the areas that they grew up on, for those of us who aren’t too familiar with that specific region of Texas, says frontman Cleto Cordero:

“What better way to honor our time at home than to return to square one and share these songs and stories, broken down and unplugged, in the simple and stunning country land from where I belong?

After the long and loud journey that has been our touring career, performing to seas of thousands of loud and rowdy crowds, what a breath of fresh and dusty Far West Texas air to break things down to their simplest elements and play a song or two for the crickets and the creosote– for the spirits of my ancestors!”

From their 2021 album Welcome to Countryland, the song was written Cleto himself, and this video finds some of the guys out in the simplicity of a dusty West Texas field with just a fiddle, banjo, and acoustic guitar… you love to see it:
