“Bobby is still in critical but stable condition,” the band posted on their official Facebook page. “He had a surgery and these next 24hrs will be critical. The power of prayer is an amazing thing and we can’t thank you all enough. Please continue to pray for Bobby. Thank you and we love you all.”
Martinez, who is a founding member and bass player of The Hometown Boys, was involved in an accident on Wednesday that caused his vehicle to roll over.
The Grammy-winning group had to cancel scheduled shows in Amarillo and Lubbock this week because of the unfortunate accident.
More updates will be kept to a minimum, according to the Facebook post. Tejano Nation will have more information as it becomes available.
One of the most celebrated groups of their era, The Hometown Boys started out as a family band many years ago and went on to become one of the most popular conjunto acts in the Southwest. They have been known for hit songs “Mi Ranchito”, “Somos Dos Gatos”, “El Pintor”, and many more great songs. They were the first Hispanics to be inducted into the “Buddy Holly Walk of Fame” in Lubbock, Texas, alongside Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Waylon Jennings, and other Texas legends.
