VOTE FOR YOUR TEXAS STATE ARTIST

Everyone in Texas is invited to nominate who they would like to be the next Texas State Artist. You can even nominate yourself!

 

Past Texas State Artists include Ray Benson (2004), Billy Joe Shaver (2006), Willie Nelson (2009) and Lyle Lovett (2011).

 

Texas State Artists serve one-year terms and represent the state’s artistic legacy. State Artists receive statewide recognition, and the designation provides a unique marketing opportunity.

 

Here are the rules: All qualified nominees must be native Texans or five-year residents of the state. Texas State Artists are established artists with a statewide, national or international reputation. They reflect Texas’ diversity and high-quality artistic offerings. Candidates must have received recognition for high levels of excellence and success in their respective disciplines. They also must have received critical reviews in state, regional or national publications.

 

The deadline is October 15th so go place your vote!

 

Go here nominate: www.arts.texas.gov/initiatives/texas-state-artist/

 

 

DO IT FOR DURRETT BENEFIT CONCERT

In addition to the music, 14 live auctions raised $69,500 and there were 39 lots for the silent auction.

 

Current Texas Rangers players Colby Lewis, Tanner Scheppers, Michael Kirkman, Robbie Ross and Daniel Robertson also attended to show their support.
