This song’s a banger.
“Cassie, Come On Over” is new from the band Goodnight, Texas. Even though the musicians are not from Texas they named themselves after Goodnight—a real town in Texas. I bet they would be down for some Cinco de Mayo celebrating, Tex-Mex style.
Check out Goodnight, Texas on the band’s Website where you can learn of upcoming Pacific West tour dates and buy their music.
