It’s “Texas Music Month”

Once again it’s time to pay our respects to all the Lubbock and West Texas Musicians that keep the Music dream alive by playing in their school bands, their church choir, making a living each night for their family while playing with their band. Texas has legendary players of all ages and once a year we take a step back to pay our respects for all the hard work.
Now this comes from the Governor

Texas is world-renowned for its eclectic music scene. Marked by the contributions of musical legends such as Buddy Holly, “Blind” Lemon Jefferson, Willie Nelson, ZZ Top and Selena, Texans have made an incalculable contribution to music. That is why we say, “You can’t hear American music without hearing Texas.”

The Lone Star State has long enjoyed a wealth of great musical artists. With its phenomenal growth during the last two decades, Texas’ music industry competes internationally to attract songwriters, performers and industry professionals. With nearly 8,000 regularly performing Texas bands and ensembles, the music business is a vibrant and important sector of our economy, providing jobs as well as entertainment for this great state. Our music industry also sparks tourism, as visitors from across the country travel to Texas for festivals such as South by Southwest.

To highlight the importance of the Texas music industry and recognize the accomplishments of our many great musicians, an appreciation campaign is being conducted during the month of October.

At this time, I encourage all Texans to recognize the many contributions of the music industry and those who create great music in our state.

Therefore, I, Rick Perry, Governor of Texas, do hereby proclaim October 2011 to be
Texas Music Month

in Texas, and urge the appropriate
recognition whereof.

In official recognition whereof,
I hereby affix my signature this the
11th day of September, 2011.

Governor of Texas
