Exclusive: Flatland Cavalry Discuss New Song, ‘Touchdown’, From the ‘Twisters’ Soundtrack at Railbird Festival 2024

While backstage with Holler at Railbird Festival 2024, Flatland Cavalry touched on the creative process behind their new song, ‘Touchdown’, which is featured on the Twisters soundtrack.

Flatland Cavalry are joined by a plethora of country music heavyweights on the eagerly anticipated project, which drops on July 19th to coincide with the release of the Twisters movie, a high-profile remake of the much-loved 1996 film, Twister.

Luke Combs, Megan Moroney, Lainey Wilson, Tyler Childers, Thomas Rhett, Kane Brown and more have contributed tracks to the blockbuster record, which also includes a brand new song from country icon, Shania Twain. Shania’s appearance is made all the more special by the fact that she featured on the original 1996 soundtrack.

One of the songs fans have been looking forward to hearing the most has undoubtedly been Flatland Cavalry’s ‘Touchdown’, with the band explaining to Holler how the song arose.

Flatland Cavalry shared, “It was through Warner Chappell, our publisher. They asked us if we wanted to write a song for the Twisters movie and the word ‘Touchdown’ came to mind, and it’s all the different stuff that you can associate it with…so we wrote that and went in the studio, and the guys added the magic to it”.
