lonestar jubilee the texansThe Lone Star Jubilee is making their stop in the Valley this coming week. With just three concerts to catch them at, you will want to plan to be at one. From Branson, the group focuses on bringing great music, comedy, and fun for the whole family.

The Texans, who have performed for 48 years in the Rio Grande Valley as both The Texans and Lone Star Jubilee, are looking forward to entertaining the crowd.

Sam Ray and the Texans are not only entertainers, but they are also missionaries who strive to spread the word of God through their deeds throughout the world.


Sam Ray says, “As I grew older, I wanted to do something different that would impact the world and so the Lord led me to the ministry we have now called the Texans International Ministries.

“In doing this, we’re able to impact a lot of lives for people that are unfortunate in this world,” he added.

All the proceeds from the three concerts they will be performing will be going toward their mission projects. The concerts are designed to raise awareness and funds to help with mission projects here in the United States and around the world. This year, the group’s goal is to finish some of their projects that were put on hold last year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“At the last supper, our Lord Jesus Christ commanded his disciples to teach all the followers, to do one final commandment, and that is to love others as he has loved us and of course Christ gave the ultimate sacrifice and he expects us as his children to do the same thing to people all around the world,” he said about why they do the mission projects.

A current home project is at a children’s Christian service camp in Honobia, OK. Here they are building dorms, remodeling their dining hall, and completing a caretaker’s cabin.

Foreign projects include building a multi-purpose building in Bacoos, Philippines. They are also building a safe house for girls at risk of sex trade and providing medical supplies to Gonaives, Haiti. Funds will also go to building water wells in several countries.

“The most important things is that I’m able to do this with my family,” said Sam Ray. “It’s been a lifelong dream to be able to live and be able to do what I enjoy doing with my family and my best friends.”

Also joining the Texans are Duke Mason, a Giant of an Entertainer at only 46’’ tall, bass vocalist David Little, and BJ.

On Sunday, January 24, they will perform at Christ Church of the Valley at 6 p.m. The church is located at 2900 Dr. Hugh Emerson Rd. in Brownsville.

They will perform at First Baptist Church in Combes on Monday, January 25, at 2 p.m. The church is located at 402 Templeton.

Valley Baptist Retreat and Conference Center will play host to Lone Star Jubilee on Thursday, January 28 at 2 p.m. They will perform in the outside pavilion located at 1600 E. U.S. Business 83 in Mission. (Corner of Stewart Rd. and Bus. 83)

All concerts are a freewill offering and social distancing will be practiced.
