The past two years have been quite a ride for the West Texas-based band Cooder Graw. In that short period of time, the group has grown from playing small 100 seat venues to performing as the headliner in front of thousands at musical events throughout Texas and Oklahoma. They have opened shows for some of Texas' biggest stars (Robert Earl Keen, Jack Ingram, Jerry Jeff Walker, Asleep at the Wheel, among others). Their first CD was recorded live in 1998 was self-produced, and cost less than $1000. Their debut studio CD of 12 original songs, released in November 1999, was produced by Grammy Award winner Ray Benson and 9-time #1 country songwriter Hayden Nicholas.The disc features several special guest performances by major recording artists the group never even dreamed of meeting just months ago. The award-winning group Asleep at the Wheel even joined the band in recording one song on the new offering. 1999 has also brought the band corporate sponsorship, media notice in several newspapers and magazines, and radio airplay on stations throughout Texas. In addition, Cooder Graw has grabbed the attention of several corporate players in the music industry such as Hastings Entertainment, AristoMedia, Bismeaux Productions, and Anderson Merchandisers. The motion picture industry has taken notice of Cooder Graw as well. In April 1999, the band headlined the premiere party for the Universal Pictures release "EdTV" in Austin, Texas. And the band's music will be featured on the soundtrack to the new Trimark Pictures release "Held Up" in theaters later this year. It is very rare for a band to experience the phenomenal increase in popularity that Cooder Graw has the past two years (especially a band coming from the sparsely populated Texas Panhandle). The reason Cooder Graw's star is rising is so quickly is simple. Those who have seen and heard this band will tell you that this band is fun to watch, their music is catchy, their performances rowdy and energetic, and last, but obviously not least, the members are accomplished musicians. Rich Brotherton of Robert Earl Keen's band called Cooder Graw's music "Loud Country." Cooder Graw is now taking their loud country all over Texas, Oklahoma and the Southwest, one town and one dancehall at a time.

Cooder Graw is the best band I have seen in a long time....the first time I saw them, I knew right then that these talented men are gonna be BIG!!!!! The last time I said this about any band was back in the 80's, I saw Stevie Ray Vaughn in a small bar and I knew the first time I saw him, I knew he would make it BIG and he did. When I saw Cooder Graw, I had the same feeling. Matt, Kelly, Joe, Jimmie,Paul and Nick are GREAT!!!! The heartfelt energy they have is incredible!!!!!! Hats off to you Cooder Graw!!!!!

went and saw cooder graw at woody in fort worth on friday nignt. Probably the best concert i have ever seen. After they had played about 6 or 7 songs all the power in the bar went out. The bar was pitch black. Much to my suprise the band did not want to stop playing. Instead Matt unplugged his guitar and started taking request. Everyone took out their lighters and sang along in the dark for the next hour. Very Cool

cooder is a band not a man. graw is the last name of the band name, not the last name of a man's name. figure it out.

Wow I like this band. In person there is no one better, period. This album highlights that enthusiasm and drive. Six great musicians giving all they have every song. I am loving Live at Billy Bob's and recommend it highly.
