Texas Country Music Hall of Fame started with an idea, became a nationally recognized event | Lifestyles


The Texas Country Music Hall of Fame and the Tex Ritter Museum started with humble roots but quickly took on a life of their own.

Tommie Ritter Smith, the organization’s president and CEO, was involved with the venue even before the idea became a reality. Former Carthage city manager Charles Thomas said Smith had been the driving force behind the site from day one, which had a lot of support from civic leaders like Chet Stout and Lynn Vincent.
