The Lubbock Music NOW project was developed by Civic Lubbock, Inc. in 2016 to honor and recognize musicians living in the Lubbock area "working the circuit," and to give visitors a picture of what is produced on the local music scene. The project compiles an album each year made up entirely of locally produced music. Winning entries receive a $200 prize and inclusion on the Lubbock Music NOW 2018 album on iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby. The CD will also be available at the Buddy Holly Center, Ralph's Records and other local businesses in the fall.
