FORT WORTH, TEXAS – Stepping into renowned Lone Star State honky tonk Billy Bob’s Texas to celebrate and honor country music at last night’s Texas Country Music Awards, Texas native Jake Worthington was awarded Male Artist of the Year and Country Album of the Year for his debut, self-titled album of “gorgeous beer-joint purism” (Texas Monthly) released earlier this year.

“I just want to thank everybody here,” shared Worthington from the stage. “I believe in country music with all my heart. It’s about the only thing that ever made any sense to me. Walking through Billy Bob’s today, there’s so many people here that I have been inspired by, and I’m honored to be amongst everybody here. Here’s to the honky tonker, here’s to believer of country music, and here’s to every single one of us here tonight.”

Adding to the monumental evening, Worthington’s steel guitar player Adam Goodale also took home the win for Steel Guitar Player of the Year.

Worthington’s newest accolades continue to build on his year of career milestones, including his Grand Ole Opry debut earlier this year and first-ever performance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre opening for CMA Entertainer of the Year Lainey Wilson. Rounding out a year packed full of shows nationwide, Worthington continues bringing “true traditional country in its most pure form” (Saving Country Music) to stages through the end of the year on ERNEST’s This Fire Tour, dates with Lainey Wilson and Randall King, and opening at the Wrangler National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas (12/14).
