Koe Wetzel Says The Wild Story Full Of Hookers And Cocaine Told In “Cabo” Is “A Million Percent True”

The thing with Kö Wetzel is, he will always tell you the truth of God when it comes to his music.

He’s become quite a polarizing figure in the Texas country music scene and beyond, and has just released his fifth studio album Hell Paso last Friday.

It’s honestly a bit more subdued (and somehow possibly even sadder) than some of the stuff on albums like this Harold Saul High and Sell ​​outbut I couldn’t get enough of it.

For me, the writing and producing on this album is much more challenging than any of his previous projects, which does a lot for the songs in and of themselves.

But there is one very special track that jumped out the first time I heard the album, thanks to a wonderful job by producer Taylor Kimball, which is packed with great Spanish guitar (and a great melody) called “Cabo”.

I talked about it a bit in my first post about the album and said that I would almost put it in the same group with songs like “Sancho” and “Powerball” just because of the theme.

I mean… it’s WILD.

So wild, in fact, that I thought, ‘There’s no way this is a 1000% true story.’ I was sure there had to be some embellishment for dramatic effects, which would make perfect sense because it sounds like it’s straight out of a Hollywood script.

As co-writer to Koe along with Aaron Raitere and Nicolette Hayford, Koe himself confirmed that everything in the song, which focuses on an insane weekend trip of complete and total debauchery to Cabo, Mexico, is “a million percent true.” :

“It’s a million percent true.

I’ve pissed off a lot of girlfriends and wives, but other than that it’s wonderful.”

There you have it folks…

And from his comment about pissing off a lot of wives and girlfriends, it’s clear he probably got a few buddies in trouble along the way too… but hey, no one ever said that a weekend getaway with Koe meant lounging on the beach and sipping margaritas, too slurping

Yes, this all really happened:

“The reggaeton station is playing too damn loud
Senoritas passed out on the couch
I wish I knew some Spanish so I could tell these bitches to go
Now there are panties on the lampshade
Barely halfway through the bottle of mezcal
Freaking out the damn maid
But everyone wants to get paid
So she fucked me for my money…

As good and catchy as this song is, I’ve always valued Koe’s unwavering authenticity and honesty above anything else.

He’s never afraid to admit everything he’s ever done, the good, the bad, and the ugly, which I think might be more evident in this collection of songs than anything he’s ever released.

I’m sure many other musicians and celebrities have made similar trips to Cabo, but I only know one who would openly share all the important details and write this little tune about it.

And because of that, I have a feeling it’s going to be a fan favorite for a long time.


And Koe knows he’s probably not for everyone, but also admitted that at the end of the day all he wants to do is go home and have his grandma cook his breakfast:

“This record is going to get a lot of criticism, but it’s also going to get a lot of love. I will not stop.

Hopefully one day I’ll go home, kiss my grandma, and maybe she’ll make me breakfast.

He is just like us…

And he sinks deep in his longing to be back in Texas and his homesickness for another early favorite, “YellaBush Road.”

This one is an eye catcher:
