That’s the first thing and last thing you need to know about Will Banister. From the state of New Mexico, raised about 20 miles from the Texas line, Will grew up with the sounds of Merle Haggard, Hank Williams, George Strait and Brooks and Dunn blaring through the speakers of his dad’s pickup. This made a huge impact in shaping the sound of his songs and performance style. The lyrics – along with the fiddle and steel in Will’s music – will have you reminiscing about the glory days of country radio in the 1990s, while still sounding fresh among today’s sounds.

Will has performed all over the country, in addition to multiple tours in the UK and Europe. His latest album – “Everything Burns” – consists of 11 songs, 10 of which were either written or co-written by Will – received a 5-star review and was announced as “Album of the Month” in the March 2020 edition of the UK publication, Country Music People Magazine. On September 17th of that year, Clint Eastwood’s film “Cry Macho” was released to theaters as well as on HBO Max. In that film, Will performed the opening song entitled “Find A New Home.” The song, which was written by Grammy-award winner Mark Mancina, appeared at #2 on the Shazam Discovery chart. On January 27th of 2023, his brand new song, “Right Where We Belong” (co-written by Roger Springer, Jeff Hyde and Will Banister) was released. Will has accumulated a social media following consisting of 93k followers on TikTok, 29k on Instagram, over 120k followers on Facebook – and those numbers continue to grow rapidly!

Catch this classic country artist with his full band for the first time at the historic Cactus Theater, Friday, August 11.

Special guest opener is Lubbock’s own Hannah Jackson!
