The Texas Country Music Hall of Fame, located in Carthage, Texas in Panola County, honors those who have made outstanding contributions to country music and were born in the state of Texas. This includes singers, songwriters, disc jockeys and others.

 

A museum, a large multi-purpose room, and a gift shop comprise the major areas of interest within the facility. The multi-purpose room can be configured to serve as a lecture hall or a dining room. The museum contains informational panels that cover each inductee's career and accomplishments through text, photographs, and artifacts.

 

In the center of the exhibit area, a replica of a 1930s theater marquee reminds visitors of the role of country music in film. The marquee also serves as the entrance to the Tex Ritter museum. Ritter, who was born in Panola County, was one of the first singers inducted into the hall when it was established in 1998.
