initiated in 1998 to celebrate the contributions of Texans to the country music
profession. The project highlights those individuals, living or dead, who are
recognized nationally as outstanding in their field. The impressive structure
encompasses 13,000 square feet of space for exhibits, a gift shop and a large
banquet room. The facility can accommodate groups of 300 for lecture-type
seating or more than 200 for catered dinners. With soaring ceilings,
state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems and a commercial kitchen, the Hall
of Fame provides unparalleled meeting space for local groups needing space for
banquets and other activities.
Texas Country Music Hall of Fame Show 2014 Inductee
August 9, 2014
Tex Ritter Museum. . . was opened on the
upper floor of the Hawthorn-Clabaugh-Patterson House on October 18, 1992.
Memorabilia was received from Ritter's family in California, and after hours of
cleaning and cataloging the items by volunteers, the museum became a reality.
With the opening of the Texas Country Music Hall of Fame, the Museum was moved
to the new location in August, 2003.
