West Texas Hll of Fame


2010 Annual Awards                                      


Last week, Charlie and I went to San Angelo to present a Special Recognition Achievement Award Plaque to Rick Smith from The West Texas Music Hall Of Fame. He is a columnist for the Standard Times newspaper in San Angelo. The plaque was presented to Rick for recognizing through his articles in The Standard Times, the many West Texas Entertainers that were and are, so much a part of the West Texas Music history. Without these articles, the entertainers as well as the West Texas towns they represented, may have just "rode off into the West Texas sunset" and disappeared--forever forgotten. His articles have shown us how important West Texas has been and is to the music world.

On behalf of The West Texas Music Hall Of Fame, we thank you Rick.

Hi Royce,


Hope this finds you back home and dry in Tennessee.


It was great meeting you again after all of these years. Everyone enjoyed your performance playing your acoustic guitar and singing. I hope we were able to surprise you with The West Texas Music Hall of Fame Pioneer Award. Since you have many major awards for your songwriting and had popular rockabilly bands in Sweetwater back in the 1950's we thought a Pioneer Award would be appropriate.Thanks for helping to make the 2010 Sweetwater High School Reunion of the Century a once in a lifetime event. From all of your former classmates in Sweetwater and The West Texas Music Hall of Fame we wish you and Ann the best.
