Academy of Western Artists Honor and Honky Tonkin Cowboy Tour
On The Horizon in 2018
Bobby Marquez is flashing that signature smile as his original country music leads him into a promising 2018. The year is off to a great start for the singer/songwriter who was just announced as one of the five finalists for the Academy of Western Artists Pure Country Male Performer of the Year.
Marquez explains, “This is huge because the DJs vote on this award and you know how many CDs come across their desks and how many great entertainers they play. I am just so thankful for them even considering me. It would be amazing to win this award in honor of my late father-in-law. He inspired my new songs. And Bill Mack, one of my earliest supporters is being honored that night as well.”
The awards ceremony will be held in Fort Worth at Texas Christian University on Thursday, March 15th. Marquez plans to share his latest single, “The Cowboy Way,” that weekend. The song is featured on his new EP along with a duet with the legendary Johnny Rodriguez.
In the meantime, Marquez hits the road in February for the first dates on his Honky Tonkin Cowboy Tour. Appropriately, the first shows will take place in the city he once called home, San Antonio, Texas. Bobby Marquez has four shows planned at the San Antonio Stockshow and Rodeo, the weekends of February 10th and February 17th and 18th.
