Texas Country Music Hall of Fame Inductees


Proud of East Texas: Texas Country Music Hall Of Fame

The 10th annual Texas Country Music Hall Of Fame welcomed three new members to their galaxy of stars this week in Carthage.  Red Steagall, Bob Luman and Johnny Rodriguez were honored for their contributions to Texas and country music.

Red Steagall, a native of Gainesville, who found stardom as a performer, songwriter and actor, kicked off the entertainment for the standing room only crowd.  Melissa Luman represented her dad, rockabilly star Bob Luman, at the ceremony.  Luman died at the age of 38 in 1975.  Johnny Rodriguez, who burst onto the music scene during the 1970’s as the first Chicano artist, performed a number of his hits including Lonely Women Make Good Lovers and Desparado.

  1. In my mind Texan music (aside from Nashville) is the only music that counts! You can thank great country music exposure for all the great music in Texas! Radio stations such as Lone Star 92.5 are stirring up a commotion by playing less commercials and more of that southern charm! From Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson , and Stevie Ray Vaughn, to the Dixie chicks and Sheryl Crow, these guys dont miss a beat! I work with these guys and they always have the best Country Events and happenings in the Dallas area! Ya’ll should check out their upcoming line ups and events at http://www.lonestar925.com for some good country lovin’!
