Any day we get new Flatland Cavalry is a good day in my book.

They’ve been releasing stripped-down versions of songs from their latest album, Welcome To Countryland, over the last couple months, singing from various locations across the Trans-Pecos region of Texas.

And today, we’re getting the full album of acoustic tunes from their fantastic Far Out West Sessions.

Frontman Cleto Cordero relished in the opportunity to go back home and make these videos in places that mean so much to his family:

“Long before my mom and dad decided to settle in Midland, TX and raise their large family of seven children, our family’s story began out in their magnificent big backyard, the Trans-Pecos Region of Texas, specifically Redford and Presidio, TX.

The opportunity to travel back to where my family’s humble origins begin in Far West Texas was incredible. I haven’t been out that way in over fifteen years or so and was deeply moved by the sentiment of ‘returning home.’

Getting to sing songs in the country that shaped my family’s character was a spiritual experience.”

They previously put out “It’s Good To Be Back (‘Round Here Again),” “Dancin’ Around A Fire,” “Daydreamer,” “Tilt Your Chair Back,” and “It’s Good To Be Back (‘Round Here Again).”

If you’re into good, simple and pure Texas country music (and who isn’t?), make sure you check out the whole album today.
