The musical voice of Texas presents itself as vast and diverse as the Lone Star State's landscape. According to Casey Monahan, Director of the Texas Music Office, "To travel Texas with music as your guide is a year-round opportunity to experience first-hand this amazing cultural forceÃ'Â....Texas music offers a vibrant and enjoyable experience through which to understand and enjoy Texas culture." Building on the work of The Handbook of Texas Music that was published in 2003 and in partnership with the Texas Music Office of the Governor and the Center for Texas Music History (Texas State University-San Marcos), The Handbook of Texas Music, Second Edition, offers completely updated entries and features new and expanded coverage of the musicians, ensembles, dance halls, festivals, businesses, orchestras, organizations, and genres that have helped define the stateÃ'Â's musical legacy.
