Texas singer Josh Abbott provides Harvey help in form of barbecue in Rockport

Texas country singer and Josh Abbott Band frontman Josh Abbott made a stop in Rockport Tuesday to aid first responders who were in town to help out victims of Tropical Storm Harvey. 

Here’s how Texas businesses are helping Harvey victims

Texas state Rep. Drew Springer, who represents District 68, (which includes Vernon, Memphis, Graham and Jacksboro) tweeted a photo with Abbott at the singer’s barbecue rig. Abbott, who is from Idalou, just outside of Springer’s district, was on hand that day to help feed first responders.


Abbott and his band have been raising money for flood victims since the storm approached:
