AUSTIN, TX (News Release) - Governor Greg Abbott today announced that Lindale, having completed the multi-step certification process, has been designated as a Music Friendly Community by the Texas Music Office. The Music Friendly Community program seeks to foster music business economic development in Texas cities and communities.

Brendon Anthony, director of the Texas Music Office within the Office of the Governor’s Economic Development Division, will officially present the Music Friendly Community designation in Lindale on Thursday, October 18, 2018.

“The Texas music industry generated over $19.8 billion in economic activity and created over 178,000 direct and indirect permanent jobs in communities all across the Lone Star State last year, with support from the Texas Music Office,” said Governor Abbott. “Music Friendly Communities certified by the Texas Music Office are serious about attracting and developing local music industry growth, and I am proud of all that the Texas Music Office has accomplished in helping communities like Lindale grow their local economy.”

Lindale joins other Texas cities that have received the official Music Friendly Community designation from the Texas Music Office, including Fort Worth, Austin, San Antonio, and Denton.
