Josh Abbott Bringing His Mom as His ACM Awards Date

Just surprised mom! Taking her dress shopping #ACMs @acmawards

A post shared by Josh Abbott Band (@joshabbottband) on

Josh Abbott gave his mother a nice surprise four weeks after the death of his father, her husband. He’s bringing her to Las Vegas to walk the ACM Awards red carpet — but it’s how he told her that is most important.

The lead singer of the Josh Abbott Band brought his mom, Lynnette, shopping with him, but she was under the impression he had a meeting. Then Abbott turned his camera phone on her and revealed his true intentions: They were dress shopping!

Lynnette looked overwhelmed by the news, and certainly excited. The 2017 ACM Awards are on Sunday (April 2) at 8PM ET on CBS. The Josh Abbott Band are not nominated, but will be in attendance. The band have resumed playing concerts after the death of David Abbott on March 2. He suffered a stroke several weeks earlier — Josh Abbott kept fans updated about his health down to the final days, and since then has been candid.

In addition to Josh, David leaves behind his wife and son Chance. In an obituary penned by Josh Abbott, fans learn that he was able to live out a dream of holding a granddaughter, as Chance and his wife gave birth to a baby girl in January. He was preceded in death by his parents and son Matthew, who died in 1982, just two days after birth.
