The Texas Music Office, a division of the Governor’s Office, will designate Stephenville as a Music Friendly Community at a public ceremony and reception being held Tuesday, November 13, at 6-8 p.m. This is being held at the Twisted J Live venue, including its backyard area.

Stephenville’s city fathers, Texas State University faculty and staff, music leaders including those who produce the yearly Larry Joe Taylor music festivals, are gathering with others in the community for this festive occasion.

Participation in the “Music Friendly Community” program provides Texas communities with a network for fostering music industry, and sends a clear message to industry professionals that these certified communities are serious about attracting and developing music industry growth.

Stephenville becomes the seventh city to receive this designation, joining Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, Denton, and Lindale. Dallas and Corpus Christi are also working through the certification process, according to the Texas Music Office.

The event Tuesday evening is free and includes complimentary refreshments, plus and after-party jam session. The Band Pearl Street Combo will play for the crowd.
