Texas Music Project names 2017 Grammy winner Maren Morris as Honorary Chairman

Written by FWD501cReporter

Dallas-based Texas Music Project named former program participant Maren Morris as an Honorary Chairman of the organization. Morris, an Arlington native, recently won Best Country Song Performance for “My Church” at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards.

“We welcome Maren as our new Honorary Chairman and can’t wait to see what great work she does for not only Texas Music Project, but music itself,” the organization shared in a press release.

According to Texas Music Project’s website, Morris participated in a writing camp eleven years ago.


For over 14 years, Texas Music Project has been supporting music education in our Texas schools. As a 501c3 non-profit organization, Texas Music Project’s primary mission is simple: encourage, promote, produce, and advance music education programs. Michael Clay, Executive Director and Co-Founder, leads a seven-person Board of Directors panel full of big dreams and musical ambition. Students, schools and the community deserve the best music education has to offer, which is why TMP partners with a select network of music industry professionals. Lack of funding for the arts, specifically music education, has been a challenge, but TMP has come to the rescue. Educational programs and performance opportunities await young artists who would not otherwise have access to these experiences.
