In 1977, after hearing about the popular Tony Awards, a Fort Worth disc jockey named Terry Beene started a joke about the "Terry Awards". People began calling about ticket availability and Terry Beene was forced to put on a real show. Since Terry had spent so many unappreciated and unrecognized years as a club musician himself, he combined his love for Country music and his past as a night club musician into the idea for an award show, that went from an on-air gag to a serious show of recognition. Over the next forty years the Terry Awards grew in size and popularity. It has been held at such places as Billy Bob’s Texas and Casa Manana in Fort Worth.
Terry is a bright sensitive energetic man with a mind that ticks continuously with new ideas. The Terry Awards have always had something to do with the music business. This year the Terry Awards will be held at Branson, MO in the luxurious Baldknobbers Theatre. Rawstin has been invited to sing on the awards show, a tremendous honor as usually it is only Branson stars. Our boys from TEXAS get to take the stage. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday there will be various activities, shows, and events to attend, culminating in the luxurious look of the Terry Awards. Ladies in their formals and men in their tuxes .... walking the red carpet!! Heres some pictures to capture the memories from 2018!
