Proud of East Texas: Music City

For a city of only 2,000 people, Linden has an incredible musical heritage.  Musicians like Don Henley, Richard Bowden and Jerry Surratt honed their musical ability at the American Legion Hall.  "Daddy Of The Blues" T-Bone Walker, one of the most influential forces in American music, also hailed from Linden.

Linden's musical heritage continues with productions at Music City Texas, located in the old Legion Hall.  Henley and Bowden have lured their superstar friends to appear at Music City and lend their talents there also.  It's said that in Linden, the music never dies and Music City Texas plans to keep it that way.
