Our Mission Print

Texas Music Hall of Fame® recognizes and honors performers, producers, songwriters and other music business professionals who have made a significant contribution to Texas music or otherwise left behind a musical legacy. Through its various programs and projects, the TMHOF seeks to educate the public about the achievements of such individuals.

Texas music parallels the rich blending of ethnic cultures that have occurred throughout the history of the Lone Star State. Whether it's blues, gospel, jazz, R&B, conjunto, Tejano, honky tonk, western swing, zydeco, classical, rock & roll, rap, hip-hop, or otherwise, Texas music represents the unique cultural heritage of this state. Texas Music Hall of Fame® seeks to honor and celebrate the men and women who have helped make Texas music so unique and so well loved throughout the world. This is our mission for the amazing artists and inspirational music enthusiasts who have made Texas music great.
