It's time to make nominations for Texas State Artist, and fresh on the heels of JAB Fest, I was thinking of Josh Abbott.

It would be terrific to have Abbott, a Lubbock musician who has done so well across the state and has received both local and national recognition, become a Texas State Artist.

He is focused not only on his music, but on serving Texas and humanity. He's taken on many humanitarian projects, like JAB Cares, which most recently has made significant contributions to many charitable organization through the Victory Bells Golf Tournament and their Jab Cares silent auction. Abbott was also recently inducted into the West Texas Walk of Fame, joining the ranks of notable musicians, including Natalie Maines, Bob Livingston, Buddy Holly, Waylon Jennings, Roy Orbison and Mac Davis.

The tremendous attendance at JAB Fest 2018 speaks volumes to how well supported Josh Abbott's music is and what it means to be a Texas State Artist.

So, let's nominate Josh Abbott for Texas State Artist! You can follow this link for more information about nominating a Texas State Artist. The deadline is on Monday, October 15th, so don't delay. Who's with me?
