Texas Music is a quarterly entertainment magazine published in Austin, Texas. Since its launch in January 2000, Texas Music has covered hundreds of the state’s musicians and bands, representing all styles of music, in addition to writing about the venues and events that contribute to the state’s music scene. Launched in January 2000, the magazine was formed out of an idea for a MBA school project by publisher Stewart Ramser.[1]

Texas Music includes compilation CDs featuring Texas artists inside some issues. More than 300 artists have appeared on these CDs since 2005.

The magazine also hosts reader appreciation parties featuring performances by Texas artists.[2]

The editor of Texas Music is Tom Buckley, a University of Texas faculty member. The art director is Martha Gazella-Taylor, who won a design award — the Charles E. Green Award for Excellence in Journalism — in 2005 for her work on the magazine. Associate editors are William Michael Smith and Allie Eissler. Don McLeese is senior editor, and Madison Searle edits the book review section.

The magazine celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2010.[3][4]
