Fort Worth Texas Music

The Fort Worth area is probably best known for the tourist laden Fort Worth Stockyards - which gives a glimpse of what life was like in this wild west town many years ago.

 The small city of Fort Worth, Texas certainly also has a lot to offer when it comes to a great variety of music. There is more than just background noise for a Country-western two-step here in Fort Worth. The city boasts many musical fairs and events throughout the year at a variety of professional venues. The music scene - much like the city itself - is continuing to grow and many famous people have started their careers in Fort Worth such as the following:

T-Bone Burnett - singer / songwriter, musician, record producer

Johnny Dowd - musician

The interesting thing about the tunes in Fort Worth is that they are always changing and I would love to know how you feel about the music scene in Fort Worth - how it has changed - and what you feel has stayed the same.
