A group of longtime Texas Tech University professors and public radio fans have been meeting nearly every morning for the better part of two decades to discuss news and events, usually heard through public radio.
Texas Tech University hosted the inaugural Lubbock Lights: Celebrating the Musical Heritage of the South Plains on April 9. The event focused on the creative process behind how some Lubbock musicians create their iconic music.
Terri Hendrix, a singer-songwriter from San Marcos, Texas, said despite her lack of roots in West Texas, some of her greatest musical influences have deep roots in the region.
“You can’t be involved in the Texas music scene and not be influenced by the music of the South Plains,” Hendrix said.
