Fast rising Texas act Josh Abbott Band played over 250 shows last year, packing Texas hot spots such as Wild West in Lubbock, Cowboys in San Antonio and Billy Bob’s in Fort Worth. Coming off the success of their 2008 debut album Scapegoat, the Josh Abbott Band now returns with their sophomore album She’s Like Texas hitting streets Feb. 16.
Produced by Erik Herbst, Josh Abbott wrote or co-wrote all of the 12 tracks on the album including the lead off single, “All Of A Sudden,” which landed inside the Top 10 on the Texas Music Chart and brand new single, “She’s Like Texas,” to hit radio mid-January. Released via Pretty Damn Tough Records / Thirty Tigers, the album features special guest performances from Kacey Musgraves, Roger Creager and Trent Willmon.
Fellow Texan Zane Williams released a new album this week called The Right Place. He’ll mark the occasion with a party for all of his Tennessee friends and fans at Judge Beans BBQ in Brentwood, TN on Friday, Jan. 29. The show will begin at 6:00pm and it is free to the public. Radney Foster, another Texas native, produced the project for the singer-songwriter. Williams is also celebrating his writing credit on Jason Michael Carroll’s current hit single “Hurry Home.”
