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.

There's nothing better than popping in this cd and hitting the Texas hwy., the sound is pure and true. The lyrics has what it takes to make anyone know this is a real live Texas band. The 'Segundo' cd has a sense of life that no other can touch, each song tells it how it is and makes you reach back and grab another cold one. Just one reason why I love Texas music, Cooder Graw is real and down right TEXAS at it's best.

I just can't seem to get enough of these guys music. If you want a helluva cd to pop into the cd player while hitting the Texas highway, Cooder Graw's "Segundo" cd is a must!!! I must say that these guys give you a seat on stage while your behind the wheel, you can actually feel as if your at the concert. Don't miss out, add this cd to your collecton.

This collection of tunes is absolutely fantastic! This band has got to be on their way to greater things! Brings back memories of down-to-earth boogie days of old Austin town and the Armadillo World Headquarters! WE WANT MORE!!!!!

One thing I hate, buying a cd, getting into the music and then going to the band's show and it's like (I never heard this before) Cooder Graw, though... great on the cd's, even better live. Good work guys! Keep it up, can't wait to see you in the big leagues, you deserve it. Come back soon as you can, now, he-ah! (That's like yeeehaaa from Haskell)

I can't say enough about Cooder Graw, these guys know how to put together a collection of superb songs onto a CD. If you want to add a excellent CD to your Texas music selections, well I'd say Cooder Graw's 'Segundo' is a heck of a choice, along w/ their self entitled 'Cooder Graw' CD. Don't miss out, if you have the chance, go see Cooder Graw. You'll be very pleased that you did, and you'll want more! Keep it 'Loud', Cooder Graw! check them out @ www.coodergraw.com

This is an exceptional band and five extremely talented hombres. The music will reach out and hook you and Matt Martindale's lyrics reel you in. Their live show leaves you gasping for more, which is a great reason to get their new live CD, "Segundo" to be released muy pronto.

I've seen Cooder Graw at XIT, Midnight Rodeo, WTAMU campus, Dilla Villa, and half a dozen more. Believe me these guys know how to rock the house. Matt Martindale is extremely friendly and will show you a party. Midnight Rodeo, Amarillo December 6, be there.

We saw Cooder Graw at Shadow Canyon and they absoutely rocked the place. They really know how to entertain a crowd with their music and energy.
