Guess Which Town was Officially Named the “Free Live Music Capital of North Texas”?

Widely recognized as one of the greatest live music cities in Texas, Rockwall was recently named the “Free Live Music Capital of North Texas” by the Texas House of representatives.

State Rep. Justin Holland filed a concurrent resolution  to designate Rockwall as the official Live Music Capital of North Texas. The “free” distinction was added later after review by the Culture, Recreation and Tourism committee.

In both versions, Holland says Rockwall “has long been committed to fostering a dynamic arts scene in its community, and live music has played a vital role in that mission.” He goes on to outline the successful music events the community has held since 1999, like the Concert by the Lake Series.

The Rockwall Republican says nearly 130 live music events are held each year and “the town’s growing reputation as an important music hub has made it a popular destination for travelers from across Texas and beyond.” The resolution will be sent through the Senate, where Holland expects it to be approved. If so, Rockwall will get to keep the designation for 10 years.

The music scene in Rockwall will continue to amplify as the city preps for the Rockwall Founders Day Festival at Harry Myers Park, which will be headlined by Texas Country superstar Pat Green. Also taking the stage for Rockwall’s 163rd Birthday will be Corey Morrow, Ashmore, ZZ Top Cover Band – Trio Loco, Southern Ride along with Ryan Berg & The Velvet Ears. As always, festival entertainment is all free. Bring the family to Rockwall for the best outdoor party in north Texas!
