Mayor Betsy Price, center, joins musicians and travel officials to celebrate Fort Worth's designation as a Music Friendly Community.

Fort Worth has another feather in its Stetson.

“We’re proud to announce that Fort Worth has been designated the first Music Friendly Community in Texas by the Texas Music Office,” Mayor Betsy Price said. “We love seeing our music scene thrive and our local artists in the national spotlight.”

Participation in the Music Friendly Community program provides Texas communities with a network for fostering music industry development and sends a message to industry professionals that certified communities are serious about attracting and developing music industry growth.

In July, Texas Music Office Director Brendon Anthony presented the first Music Friendly Community workshop in Fort Worth with the assistance of the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau. More than 50 music business professionals turned out to learn about the new program.

The Fort Worth CVB helped start the initiative Hear Fort Worth to promote the Fort Worth music scene around the world.
