There is a new band in the Crossroads; not a country band not a rock band. This band is on a mission; a mission to see lives changed and the love of Jesus shared in the Crossroads.
For about nine years, Clay Crockett and the Shotgun Riders played the Crossroads area as one of the most popular bands around but a couple of years ago Crockett felt that the Lord had other plans for him. He finished up the scheduled events for 2015 that were on the books. At the end of 2015 the band did an event in Inez called “Last Call” and it actually ended up being a fundraiser for the new worship band ministry and in January of 2016 Crockett left the Shotgun Riders to start a ministry using music as the tool to reach others for Jesus. The result was Nation of Believers Band.

The holidays are upon us and with that comes preparations for those family meals together. In Texas and especially in the Crossroads thoughts on holiday food look toward tamales. Families across the area order thousands of dozens of tamales as a part of their holiday celebration.

It is one thing to see a classic pick-up truck but it is something special when you see that classic vehicle driven by a pretty teen-aged girl. Sixteen year old high school junior, Hunter Day, is the owner of this classic beauty. This 1967 Ford F-100 sports a two-toned frost turquoise and white paint job. This classic has the original motor and a four-speed standard transmission. Purchased in 2014, Hunter has helped restore this classic and kept it zipping down the road. In addition to being involved in softball and track in school, Hunter enjoys working on her truck and attending car shows.
