About Texas Sounds

 

Texas Sounds International Country Music Awards

Texas Sounds is a production of East Texas Performing Arts, Inc. a 501c3 nonprofit corporation.

 

In 2014 the concept of a worldwide country music competition was launched in the little tourist town of Jefferson, Texas. The concept matured quickly into one of the most exciting country music events anywhere in the world. That first year top performers came from eight nations to compete.

 

In the intervening years Texas Sounds has grown to attract the very Country musicians from more than 15 nations!

 

Worldwide, Country Music is a huge phenomenon and Texas is regarded as the center, the birthplace, of several Country Music genres (Western Swing, Boogie Woogie, Rockabilly, Red Dirt, and Outlaw Country).

 

Texas Sounds brings the tradition back home and allows traditional and innovative Country artists a stage from which to shine.
