Live Music


From raucous shows at The Longhorn to the rise of Deep Ellum and every local chart-topper in between, the history of Dallas music shows how a city flourished - and continues to flourish - alongside its rising, innovative artists. While the city's early history is steeped in blues and the giants - Johnson, King, Walker and Ledbetter - who made it, Dallas is a city that has always embraced a diverse array of artists.
