Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame

and Stage Show

Our Mission

The "Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame and Show" was established in 2007 through a proposal made by Roger Vierse to the Gatesville City Council. The proposal outlined a plan to utilize the beautiful Gatesville City Auditorium as a venue to provide monthly performances of good, family oriented music to the community free of charge. The Hall of Fame Inductions also would provide a way to promote excellence in country music performance and honor those musicians who are known and respected for sharing their musical talent with their communities.

* Please note that the Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame is unrelated to and should not be confused with the "Texas Country Music Hall of Fame" and Tex Ritter museum located in Carthage, Texas.*

The Venue

The city auditorium seats approximately 550 people on the main floor and work is underway to complete a total of 400 additional seats in the U-shaped balcony. The auditorium walls have been hand-painted with a colorful landscape mural and the sound from the stage is excellent no matter where you sit.

Roger, who also plays guitar and fiddle, took on the role of Hall of Fame Director and coordinated with Mike Kuzenka and the New Country Sounds band to form a house band. Then, Roger and his wife, Gloria, went to work designing and in some cases building sets that give the large auditorium stage a warm and inviting look that some say reminds them a lot of the Ryman auditorium.

The Events

Each month on the 3rd Friday at 7pm people from Gatesville and the surrounding communities arrive at the Gatesville City Auditorium to enjoy a concert of one or more of the selected musicians or bands often coupled with an induction ceremony into the Hall of Fame. So far, 76 members have been inducted into the Gatesville Country Music Hall of Fame. Some of the entertainers have notoriety and others are more local talent but they all have in common a love of sharing their music and have each been recommended for induction by an existing Hall of Fame member.
