Texas Music

When we talk about all the great musical talent that the world lost in 2016 - don't forget to add Guy Clark to the list.

After the past few years of failing health Clark died on May 17 at the age of 74.

He is remembered as an Texas country and folk singer - musician, songwriter, and performer. With more than 20 albums to his name and dozens of songs recorded by other artists.

Joseph Henry “T Bone" Burnett was born in St. Louis but grew up in Fort Worth, and has had a far reaching influence on the Texas “Third Coast Music” scene – but also in modern rock – country – Americana – and film – TV sound tracks.

Burnett is a musician, songwriter, producer and activist for musicians to be paid for their work in the digital age.

Terri Hendrix is from San Antonio, and got her start playing everywhere from "greasy dives" (as she once told me) to fancier digs like Restaurant Biga back when it was off of McCullough St. In 1996, she released her first album, "Two Dollar Shoes." The infectious title track and folksy melodies were a hit. She kept writing and performing, and became a self-made businesswoman with the establishment of her own record label, Wilory Records (née Tycoon Cowgirl Records).  Twenty years and over a dozen studio/live releases later, her audience has grown into a nationwide following.
