Terri Hendrix is a pioneering independent Texas songwriter with an engaging melodic flair that has endeared her to three generations of loyal fans around the globe. She was recognized by “Acoustic Guitar” Magazine as one of Texas’ 20 essential contemporary singer-songwriters. Along the way, she’s also co-written a Grammy winning instrumental (the Dixie Chicks’ “Lil’ Jack Slade”), and garnered such honors as a star on the South Texas Music Walk of Fame, the Art of Peace Award by Saint Mary’s University in San Antonio, the Distinguished Alumni Award at Hardin-Simmons University in Abilene, and a 2015 induction into the Women’s Hall of Fame in San Marcos, Texas.
Most recently, she was the recipient of both the SMART Award (presented to individuals in the community who have made significant contributions to the creation, support, or advocacy of all art forms) and crowned Mermaid Queen of the 2017 festival for championing the culture of ingenuity, entrepreneurship, community connectivity and environmental stewardship in San Marcos. Hendrix is also hard at work building a nonprofit creative center for the arts serving both Hays and Guadalupe County. It’s called the OYOU, an acronym for “Own Your Own Universe” — words that this free-spirited, self-made woman has lived and thrived by her entire adult life.
Few people are as important to the development of Texas music over the last 30 years as Lloyd Maines. As a Grammy award-winning producer and musician, the Lubbock-born Maines has played an instrumental role in the creation of some of the Lone Star State’s most famous and beloved albums. Maines began his recording and producing career in 1974. Over the past 40 years, Maines has worked on approximately six thousand albums alongside some of the most significant figures in country, rock, and Texas music. He was the producer of the Dixie Chicks break out national release “Wide Open Spaces” and is the father of their lead singer Natalie Maines.
In addition to his producing credits, Maines is an A-list steel guitar player and multi-instrumentalist. His work has been heard on countless recordings. Maines has been inducted into the Buddy Holly Walk of Fame in Lubbock, Texas, individually and as a member of the Maines Brother’s Band. He was inducted into the Austin City Limits Hall of Fame June 2014. He has made more appearances on the PBS show than anyone else in the history of the program.
