ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons Named Texas State Musician for 2012
The honor includes a one-year term. Singer-songwriter Lyle Lovett is the Texas State Musician for 2011, according to a press release. The legislature also named poet laureates, two-dimensional artists and three-dimensional artists for 2011 and 2012.
"To say we're proud to be named Texas State Musician for 2012 would be a complete understatement," Gibbons said in the release. "To be so honored along with our good friend Lyle Lovett makes this recognition that much sweeter, and a tip of the hat to 2012 Texas State Three-Dimensional Artist Bill FitzGibbons. And, we promise to forward all mail sent our way that might be intended for him." more on this story
