The Texas Songwriters Association / Austin Songwriters Group is very proud to announce the creation of the Texas Songwriters Music Legends Hall of Fame. The inaugural celebration and induction will be held Jan 14, 2016 at the Holiday Inn Midtown, 6000 Middle Fiskville Rd in Austin, Texas as part of the Texas Songwriter Association / Austin Songwriters Group Annual
This is a project the Texas Songwriters Association has been developing for years. Our goal is to honor those in the music community that have helped to shape and make Texas the fertile music landscape that it is. This group will include not only songwriters and musicians, but also individuals and groups that created and nurtured the music community.
It is our belief that the works of these music legends should be recognized for the legacy they have left. It is our hope that by shining a light on these bright stars that we will learn more about where we came from though the works of those that walked before us. Our goal is that their names and contributions will be remembered by future generations.
Each year the Texas Songwriters Association Music Legends Hall of Fame members will guide us and take part in the future nominations along with the members of the Texas Songwriters Association / Austin Songwriters Group. Nominee’s will be selected from Feb 1 to Sept 1 each year and then the voting will be open for the month of Sept. The awards will be presented and the induction ceremony will occur each year at the Texas Songwriter Association / Austin
Songwriters Group Annual Symposium. Previous inductees will celebrate the event as a Homecoming for members of the Texas Music Legends Hall of Fame.
