BOBBY MARQUEZ KICKS OFF NEW YEAR
WITH AWARD NOMINATION AND BIG TOUR
NASHVILLE, TN (January 16, 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.
