In this episode of the podcast we visit with singer-songwriter and front-man of Texas band, Flatland Cavalry, Cleto Cordero.
Having never met or talked to Cleto before this interview, the first thing that jumped out to me was just how genuine, humble and appreciative he is for his life and career in music.
Cleto explains how his performance at a talent show when he was in his teens, and the reaction of his listeners, put him on the road to be a professional musician.
Even as Flatland Cavalry’s popularity continues to rise, Cleto’s ability to remain firmly grounded and humble is equally impressive.
In the interview we also talk about his initial meeting and eventual romance with now-fiancé, singer-songwriter Kaitlin Butts.
Cleto is also a part the west Texas all-star group, The Panhandlers assembled by Josh Abbott.
So, without further ado, enjoy the episode!
