Get Out There to Listen to Some of the Best Music Austin Has to Offerby Emily on December 1st, 2016
Your Taylor Morrison dream home is in the heart of music country — Austin. Long known for its dynamic music scene, you can find a venue and listen to everything “from folk to country to ethnic to rap and reggae; you name it, Austin has it,” according to an article at Austin Relocation Guide.
While Austin was home to many jazz venues in the 1920s, the article said, it was country and big band that took the stage in the 1930s and 1940s. The Austin scene was home to rock and folk music during the 1960s and 1970s, and the famous “Austin City Limits” TV show started in 1976 and is still a favorite among music lovers.
During his heyday during the 1970s and 1980s, the article continued, the late great Stevie Ray Vaughan lived in this great musical city, which boasts a memorial statue in his honor standing at the head of Town Lake.
For the city called “The Live Music Capital of the World,” today Austin even features live music at the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport, the article said.
