Country Music Group To Headline NM Governor’s Ball

The country music group Lonestar will be headlining Gov. Susana Martinez’s inaugural ball on Jan. 1.

The governor’s inaugural committee made the announcement this week.

The “New Mexico True Inaugural Ball” will be held at the Albuquerque Convention Center. The theme this time will celebrate the state’s culture and heritage.

The ball will follow a public swearing-in ceremony earlier in the day at the State Capitol in Santa Fe.
