Flatland Cavalry Plot Summer Tour, Release Celebratory New Song ‘Gettin’ By’

Flatland Cavalry gear up for the July 2nd release of their new album Welcome to Countryland with a string of just announced tour dates. The Texas country-roots band’s headlining Welcome to Countryland Tour kicks off this weekend and runs through September and includes a few shows supporting Luke Combs.

Along with the confirmed tour, Flatland Cavalry released the second track off their upcoming LP. “Getting’ By” is a fiddle-heavy, front-porch ballad about celebrating the end of a hard week and the small victory of making ends meet. “Raise a toast to the stars, can up to the sky,” sings the group’s Cleto Cordero.

“I wrote ‘Gettin’ By’ over a Zoom session with my new pal, Jason Nix. The song is inspired by the story of my parents, who have worked selflessly their entire lives to provide for their children,” Cordero says in a statement. “I found that our family was established upon grace, hope, faithfulness, thankfulness, family, hard work and love. The song celebrates all the beautiful souls out there working towards their lofty dream while enjoying each moment of being in ‘The Middle.’”

Produced by Jake Gear, Welcome to Countryland features guest appearances by Hailey Whitters and Kaitlin Butts, and includes the band’s recording of a song co-written by Luke Combs, “A Cowboy Knows How.”
