A New Year: A New Heritage Tourism Industry for Texas!


We’d like to wish all of our music history supporters and patrons a healthy and prosperous New Year! 2023 witnessed the formation of an emerging industry in the State of Texas, sponsored by the music families, artists, venues, museums and archives (private and institutional) who are Texas’ music history.

Just this year, the Texas Music Hall of Fame® Commission was distinguished as a federal Chamber of Commerce for heritage tourism by the Internal Revenue Service (now an authorized 501C6 organization).


Chartered by industry members, the Commission has made great strides to ratify its industry standards. Music heritage tourism is now a reality in Texas. Texas Monthly Magazine helped to make us international (March 2023 issue)!

To date, we’ve established an industry predominance and presence as the official Texas Music History Trail® Program. We are the Trail, so please visit and continue to support us at


In 2024, look for more exciting music heritage projects and industry development campaigns (coming soon). To support our patrons, archival warehousing of music history collections will dominate the New Year! Remember…


“There’s been a Texas Music Hall of Fame® in Texas for more than 25 years; it’s just in 40 different locations.”

Have a Safe and Wonderful New Year…See you on the Trail!
