The Great Divide Plays Cooper’s BBQ Live Sat, July 23rd!
Another great show is coming to Cooper's BBQ Live as the Great Divide takes the stage this Saturday, July 23rd.
The Great Divide is a Red Dirt band originally from Stillwater, Oklahoma. When they came together, they wanted and had complete control of what they did. They formed their own record label, publishing company and operating company, and began recording. The group's first two albums were independent releases before signing with a major label - Atlantic Records.
Lead singer & songwriter Mike McCLure left the band in early 2003 to pursue a career highlighting his originals and helping other bands record albums. The band eventually broke up in 2005.
Then, in 2011 the original members reunited for an appearance and things went so well they decided to stay together and are still recording and touring together today. In celebration of their 25th anniversary in 2018, the band released the album "25 Years of the Great Divide" with 31 tracks. They released a new album "Higher" earlier this year so I'm sure that you will be hearing new music as well as great songs from their previous 8 albums that have been released since 1995.
