Cooder Graw


Cooder Graw was a self-described "loud country" (country music / alternative country) band from Amarillo and Lubbock, Texas. It is also the title of their second album. The group formed in 1998. It is perhaps most well-known for the song "Llano Estacado" that was featured on a series of Dodge commercials.

Cooder Graw was a self-described "loud country" (country music / alternative country) band from Amarillo and Lubbock, Texas. It is also the title of their second album. The group formed in 1998. It is perhaps most well-known for the song "Llano Estacado" that was featured on a series of Dodge commercials. Cooder Graw is somewhat of an anomaly in the music industry, in that its members' ages at its inception ranged from late-30s to early-50s. The band's singer, Matt Martindale, was the assistant district attorney of Gray County, Texas prior to devoting his full attention to the band.

Guitarist Kelly Turner was the manager of a manufacturing plant in Slaton, Texas. The band was originally called "Coup de Grâce," but another band was already using that name, so the name was changed to a "Texas-version" of the original name. The band's debut album, Home at the Golden Light, consisted of mostly covers and was self-produced by the band (though executive producer credit is given to Matthew McConaughey, a fraternity brother of Matt Martindale). It was released in 1998. The band's first national release, Cooder Graw was released in late 1999. Cooder Graw has toured extensively throughout Texas and the United States, both headlining and opening for artists such as Willie Nelson and Alabama.

The group also played at the premiere of the film EDtv, which starred McConaughey. In 2006, Cooder Graw announced that they would cease performing together after the end of the year. Their last show was on December 31, 2006, in Fort Worth, Texas. Lead singer Matt Martindale is still performing with his new band, The Matt Martindale Band. Read more on Last.fm.
