These 21 artists each bring one song to the album which will allow the Lubbock Music NOW 2020 to be fully completed. The artists chosen to be featured on the album were decided back in April 2020 by members of the Texas Brand of The Recording Academy (Texas Grammy Board). The artists’ studio-produced songs were chosen by the top 21 songs ranked.
Although the album has seen some of these artists before, this release will include 10 new artists who have not been featured on the album previously. Since the Lubbock Music NOW began back in 2016, this will be their fifth album to release since.
