Amarillo Globe News - Amarillo native Joe Ely will be among the three musicians honored Thursday night at the third annual Lubbock Lights concert at the Allen Theatre in the Texas Tech Student Union.

Music producer and musician Maines said, "I'll be sitting between two giants of the songwriting world - Sonny Curtis and Joe Ely - a couple of swell, West Texas guys. And I am the lucky guy that gets to accompany them both."

The event features discussions and performances by local and regional musicians. It is designed to provide an inside look at the creative process and inspiration for each artist.
