Josh Abbott Brings His Mom to the 2017 ACM Awards [PICTURES]

Josh Abbott celebrated at the 2017 ACM Awards on Sunday night (April 2) with someone very special to him: his mother, Lynette Abbott. Abbott and his mom walked the ACMs red carpet together before the ceremony; readers can see a couple photos of them in the gallery above.

Abbott and his family have been getting used to a “new normal” in recent weeks, following the death of his father on March 3, after he suffered a stroke in early February. On Monday (March 27), Abbott shared a sweet video on Instagram of himself surprising his mother with the news that she’d be accompanying him to the 2017 ACM Awards. She thought he had a meeting, but she was really with him to go dress shopping.

The Josh Abbott Band’s newest album, Front Row Seat, debuted at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Independent Albums chart and nabbed a Top 10 spot on the Top Country Albums chart (No. 9) following its release in November of 2015.

“We feel like we made an album that, in my opinion, I don’t know that we’ll ever make a better one,” Abbott says. “We’ll make great albums, but it’ll be hard to beat the concept and just the overall feel of this record. It will be really hard for us to top that, I think.”
