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.

“You can’t be involved in the Texas music scene and not be influenced by the music of the South Plains,” Hendrix said.
