Governor Greg Abbott today announced the Texas Music Office (TMO) and the City of Crockett, Discover Crockett, and the Crockett Area Chamber of Commerce will co-host a Music Friendly Texas Community workshop on Thursday, April 20.  

“Music is key to the Texas brand and to our local economies,” said Governor Abbott. “I thank the Texas Music Office for helping communities large and small develop creative partnerships and grow new jobs. Working alongside local leaders like those in Crockett, we can ensure Texas communities have the tools needed to succeed."  

TMO Community Relations and Outreach Specialist Chip Adams will be in attendance to explain the Music Friendly Texas Community designation and the benefits of becoming certified and answer any questions.
