The new exhibit at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum in
Austin is "Country Music from the Lone Star State: Nashville Salutes
Texas!" which runs through January 5, 2003. Organized in cooperation
with the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville, the ex-
hibit traces the roots of Texas country music from the songs of the early
settlers to modern-day performers. It features instruments, costumes, and
artifacts belonging to some of Texas's biggest musical stars, such as Bob
Wills, Roy Orbison, Townes Van Zandt, Flaco Jimenez, Clarence "Gate-
mouth" Brown, and the Dixie Chicks. In conjunction with the exhibition,
the museum will present a one-man show, Bob Wills: The King of Western
Swing, daily. Tickets for the one-man show cost $5.oo for adults, $4.00 for
seniors, and $3.50 for those who are eighteen and under.
Among the artifacts on display will be Junior Brown's "Guit-Steel" (a
combination guitar and steel guitar), Cindy Walker's pink and floral pat-
terned typewriter that she used to write country classics like 'You Don't
Know Me," Flaco Jim6nez's red Hohner button accordion, and singer-
songwriter Butch Hancock's West Texas landscape photography. Also on
display are artifacts, footage, and photographs from the locally produced
PBS TV program, "Austin City Limits." A stage and other environmental
structures within the exhibit evoke the history of the Texas country sound
from hoedowns to honky-tonks and provide a setting for live perform-
ances and educational programs.
Admission to the Museum's exhibits and the temporary exhibit "Coun-
try Music from the Lone Star State: Nashville Salutes Texas!" is $5.oo for
adults, $4.25 for seniors, youth (18 and under) free. The Museum is lo-
