Grand Prairie's workshop is the first step in the certification process, and when complete, Grand Prairie will join more than 20 other Texas cities that have earned the coveted designation “Music Friendly.”

“As our focus is on revitalizing all aspects of the Lone Star State—work, school, entertainment, and culture—Texas is committed to working alongside music industry, business, and community leaders in Grand Prairie to ensure they have the knowledge and tools they need,” said Governor Abbott. “Music is a big part of the Texas brand and our local economies, and I thank the Texas Music Office for helping communities like Grand Prairie to succeed.
