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.

Song #11 on Wake Up - give it a go immediately....super song! As for all these other recent reviews. James sucks and has no idea what he's talking about. Not sure why he even posts on the site. I think it's some strange conspiracy to trash everyone elses favorite home town bands. That Charlie guy needs to let it go. I've seen to many reviews by James to think he would ever give any of the folks here sound advice.

This is the best CD cover-to-cover that is out there right now, and definately the best to come out in a long time from anyone. Every song on the CD should come out as a single. Great mix of rock, blues, and badass TEXAS country. It was definately worth the wait from such a talented band.

Saw you guys at Gruene Hall. I was in awe of your ability to keep the crowd in overdrive. What a show! Lastly, during the concert you played tunes off Wake Up which was not out yet. Much as I thought, after the cd came out I grabbed it and have not put it down since. Hope you got that AC fixed up in the van. Thanks for putting on a great one despite being so uncomfortable. Then again, I believe Matt said it was cooler playing up on stage... :)

"Wake Up" is their best CD ever!!! Lifetime Stand & That Girl Crystal are a couple of my favorites but I love the whole CD! Each & every song touches a place in my heart. Buy a copy for yourself & tell all of your friends...they're the best band ever!!!

I think this is their best CD ever! I pre-ordered, received it the day after it was released, and haven't stopped listening to it. Lifetime Stand and That Girl Crystal are my favorites, so far, but it's all good. Buy a copy for yourself, your family and all of your friends. You won't regret it!!!

I am writing this while listining to the it, it kicks ass...good vocals and it really shows how not sending out albums all the time and being selective is a great way to keep fans

Have heard pre release version and it is awesome. It's really nice to watch a band grow and evolve. Especially when it goes to a higher plain. This CD goes far beyond anything they've done before. This CD is Texas music in it's purest sense and it does it with no apologies to Nashville Country. In fact, this is what country music should sound like
