In 2000, they won the local stage of the Colgate Country Music Showdown & later placed 2nd in the State. Since that contest, the Nashville office of the Showdown for 15 years regularly books the group every year to be the back-up band for state finalist contests throughout Texas.

Review by Lynn E.

WeddingReviewed on November 12, 2022From Driftwood, TX

I really wish this review had 10 stars to give to the members of the Cactus Country band. Our daughter's wedding couldn't have been better, much to the credit of the Cactus Country Band. Their extraordinary musical talents are over the top, with a play list of music ranging from country to rock and everything in between! The music was a gift that just kept on giving to all our guests! It was an absolute pleasure working with Tony, the band's leader - so kind, so accommodating and so conscientious. Don't hesitate to hire Cactus Country for any special event! And when you do, get ready for a memorable and great experience!!!!

Birthday Party (Adult)Reviewed on September 25, 2022From Floresville, TX

Quick response before and during our event. Arrived on time, even before their set time frame, to furnish our 90th birthday celebration with the best live music. We would and will hire CC for our next event.
