Recognized as a musician, singer, songwriter, producer and actor, Houston native Billy F Gibbons has unquestionably established himself as one of the finest blues-rock guitarists to ever emerge from Texas. Gibbons has most notably served as guitarist and lead vocalist of American rock band ZZ Top, who produced such hits as “Give Me All Your Loving,” “La Grange,” “Legs,” Sharp Dressed Man” and “Tush,” positioning them as one of the country’s top bands.

A master of writing number-one hits – 31 to be exact – Waldon, Texas, native Bob McDill has been no stranger to country and American pop music. His hits include “I’m Dancing As Fast As I Can,” “Shot Full of Love,” “Runaway Hearts” and “Falling in Love” by Juice Newton; “Gone Country” by Alan Jackson; “All the Good Ones Are Gone” by Pam Tillis; and both “Louisiana Saturday Night” and “Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On” by Mel McDaniel, to name a few. In addition to four Grammy nominations, McDill has received Songwriter of the Year Awards from BMI, ASCAP, and the NSAI. In 2012 he was awarded ASCAP’s prestigious Golden Note Award.

Texas’ self-styled culture is unique in ways that are respected and envied around the world, and so is its songwriting. Virtually defining adult contemporary radio, San Antonio native Christopher Cross most notably won five Grammy Awards with his 1979 self-titled debut album, and – for the first time ever – the four most prestigious Grammys: Record of the Year (for the single “Sailing”), Album of the Year, Song of the Year (also for “Sailing”) and Best New Artist.

A definitive Americana artist, Steve Earle, who grew up primarily in the San Antonio area, has turned many musical corners during his illustrious career. Equally acclaimed as a folk troubadour, rockabilly raver, bluesman, honky-tonk rounder, and rocker, he has won three Grammy Awards, including for 2005’s The Revolution Starts Now, 2008’s Washington Square Serenade and 2010’s Townes.

These four honored Texas artists will join an exclusive group who embody the spirit of Texas through songwriting. Past inductees include the likes of Guy Clark, Kris Kristofferson, Lyle Lovett, Willie Nelson, K.T. Oslin, and Townes Van Zandt, to name a few.
