Here in Texas we like to support Texans and the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame showcases Texans (born or raised) that are forever a part of this amazing genre.
Originally started in 1993 as the Tex Ritter Museum, it slowly expanded to include friends of Tex and other Texas country music legends. In 1998, the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame was born and today both are celebrating the contributions made by Texans to the country music profession.
They have highlighted everyone from singers to songwriters to disc jockeys in the hall of fame and every year they induct new members. This year, on August 20th they will induct;
Country Music DJ – Joe Bielinski from KTFW in Fort Worth TexasCountry Music Singer – Moe Bandy, known for “Just Good Ol’ Boys”Country Music Singer – Mickey Gilley, known for “Don’t the Girls All Get Prettier at Closing Time” and movie “The Urban Cowboy”
Currently there are 38 Texans showcased in the Hall of Fame. A few of those are;
Willie Nelson, 1998 - Waylon Jennings, 1999 - Bob Wills, 2000 - Kris Kristofferson, 2003 - George Jones, 2010
The Texas Country Music Hall of Fame also holds an annual “John Ritter Tribute Showcase” similar to a talent show; it is for new and upcoming artists.
