We’ve stamped the 2024 Awards to honor live music venues in a special way.  We know it’s going to be one awesome event once again and look forward to honoring the artists, musicians, songwriters, venues, media, and others involved in the industry who are from and perform throughout the State of Texas and beyond.”

We are sure it will once again be epic. We can’t wait to be able to shine a light on the great music and those in the Texas Country Music industry once again. It’s most definitely going to be a blast and we’re so grateful for the TCMA Members, the Stockyards and Billy Bob’s, Pendleton Whisky, and all of the sponsors.  They never fail at helping us present the biggest event and weekend in Texas Country.”
