In June of 2014, we will host our annual Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Hall of Fame Awards Show. This weekend-long celebration brings those songwriters who represent the spirit of Texas into the spotlight for a unique ceremony and inducts them into the TxHSA Hall of Fame.
Founded in 2005 by 6th-generation Texan Terry Boothe, the Texas Heritage Songwriters’ Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to honoring and celebrating songwriters who have played an important role in defining and interpreting Texas’ distinct culture.
Since 2006, the Texas Heritage Songwriter’s Association (TxHSA) has produced an annual Hall of Fame Awards Show, which takes place in conjunction with Texas Independence Day to further honor the spirit of the Lone Star State. In addition to serving as the induction ceremony for that year’s honorees, the Hall of Fame Awards Show has evolved into a sell-out concert featuring acts by the inductees themselves and special guests who perform in their honor.
Since the beginning, TxHSA has been involved with both the Center for Texas Music History and the Southwestern Writer’s Collection at Texas State University in supporting young songwriters and further protecting the State’s musical heritage. The association also regularly donates a portion of its proceeds to organizations that support Texas musicians and songwriters, such as the Health Alliance for Austin’s Musicians, which provides access to affordable health care for Austin’s low income, uninsured working musicians, with a focus on prevention and wellness.
